Nothing goes better with a giant plate of Mexican food than a margarita, am I right? Actually, that’s not completely true. While a traditional margarita is often served with Mexican dishes, there are plenty of other cocktails that will enhance your dining experience, especially on Cinco de Mayo. If you’re looking to add some fruity flavor to your Cinco de Mayo menu, try one of these tasty drinks.
