May Fifth has come around again, and many people celebrate the holiday by remembering the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France during the Franco-Mexican war. The rest of us celebrate Cinco de Mayo by eating Mexican food, dabbling in homemade quesadillas, and drinking many margaritas. These days, I pretty much celebrate any holiday that comes around with my go-to Skinnygirl cocktails, and amazingly enough, there really is a different one for any kind of festivities you might have. So for this Tuesday, May fifth, cinco de mayo 2015 we’re taking it back to the original that started it all, but with a twist. The skinnygirl margarita is what put Bethenny Frankel on the IT list, or at least what led her there. Put these 2 Skinnygirl margarita cocktails on your hit list for a killer celebration.
Spicy Lime Margarita is my absolute favorite Skinnygirl cocktail. It’s a sweet, and sour twist on the classic original and tastes best with lots of ice and lime. And nachos. I even salted the rims since it’s a special occasion.
The Skinnygirl Sweet’arita is a slightly sweeter take on the skinnygirl margarita, with the same, few calories. For a little Cinco De Mayo flavor, I rimmed the glasses with smoked paprika. Trust me, it’s a delicious delight for any summer night.
