When it comes to Cinco de Mayo, there’s nothing more festive than a margarita. For this year’s celebrations, Casamigos has created some fun new takes on the classic cocktail to spice things up. For those who like a sweet drink with a little kick, the Casamigos Spicy Mangorita incorporates mango and serrano into your cocktail while the Smoky Casa Margarita switches up tequila for Mezcal, adding some smokiness to your drink. If you want to keep it classic, the Casamigos Margarita Light is easy to make and the perfect cocktail for anyone working on that summer bod.

Cheers!
