From Hello Beautiful–May is here and you all know what that means. Not just the end of April showers and tax time; but Cinco de Mayo! Yep, that’s right, May 5, the one day of the year when it’s perfectly acceptable (although maybe not advisable) to wear a sombrero to work and start the day off right with tequila for breakfast…. and then lunch…. and some more for dinner too.
If tequila slammers and Mexican beer just aren’t going to cut it with you though, we have selected 6 cocktails to have you saying “Salud!” And they are so good, you may want to celebrate everyday like it’s Cinco de Mayo!

Everybody loves a margarita, and these days you can find them just about anywhere; muddled, frozen, flavored, candy colored, the choice is yours.
