Cinco de Mayo may be the first holiday that comes to mind for tequila fans, but this truly unique spirit deserves to be celebrated more than just once a year. Thank goodness for NYC mixologist and co-founder of La Contenta, Alex Valencia, who has created some elevated riffs on classic and authentic tequila-based cocktails. But really, who says you need a designated day to celebrate or to enjoy a few great tasting tequila cocktails? Enjoy!
Similar to a margarita, this tequila-based cocktail gets an upgrade with fresh watermelon juice. Ultra-refreshing and hydrating, this summertime cocktail is the perfect combination of citrusy bubbles, seasonal summer produce, and a splash of booze.
