Cindo de Drinko + Ghost Tequila

It’s Tequila Time!

Hands down, Cinco de Mayo is one if my favorite holidays to celebrate.  Tacos, tequila, and queso??? Sign me all the way up! I’m super excited this year because this blessed tequila celebration happens to land on a Friday. Yay for not having to call out work the next day!

Don’t act like you haven’t called out of work due to prior shenanigans the night before.

But anyway, since the party gods have aligned this holiday perfectly, I decided to share some of my favorite tequila cocktails and shooters. I also decided to switch it up this year and kick things up a notch. As usual, the ‘ritas will be flowing, but these yummy cocktails will be a part of the pregame party.

Let’s Get Started!

I have to give a shoutout to the awesome people of Ghost Tequila for sponsoring this post. Most tequila brands strive for a smooth taste. However, this rebel of a brand goes against the grain and infuses their tequila with ghost pepper…yes…ghost pepper! I told you I was kicking it up a notch! This yummy tequila starts off smooth, then burns like a bitch–but in a good way. I promise!!!
