Celebrate Cinco De Mayo sipping on this fruity love child that’s half sangria, half margarita, and all boozy and refreshing!
There’s a good chance I’ll be spending a large chunk of tomorrow in a taco/margarita induced coma, considering it’s Cindo De Drinko, I mean Mayo. So if you’ve ever planned on kidnapping me, I suggest driving past my house with a large van that says “Free tacos and Margaritas (charge your phone too)” and I’m all yours.
I obviously couldn’t decide on whether to make a big batch of sangria or an extra big batch of margaritas, so I just combined them both! This is so perfect for those who struggle living with an indecisive life like I do… the struggle is so real…
My favorite thing about this recipe is that it’s one of those big batch drinks where you pour everything into a pitcher, chill and serve. SO easy that you could probably even make this after a couple pre-game shots of tequila, not to mention it looks totally vacation-worthy with all those citrus slices and deep ruby color. In the words of my taste-tester, “I could definitely see myself sipping this on the back patio.”
How cute right?! I love serving these in chilled mason jars, because I don’t care whether you’re a woman or manly man, everyone secretly loves drinking out of mason jars.
I used a store-bought bottle of Sangria, but you could also use you’re favorite sweet red wine or even a sweet white wine! Now that I’m thinking, this would be amaaaaazing with a sweet sparkling wine! You can really customize everything about this drink (the type of tequila you use, type of wine, etc.), but I HIGHLY recommend sticking with fresh squeezed lime juice. You can use store-bought orange juice if you must, but please don’t make me beg you not to use bottle lime juice. I will seriously call you and we will have some serious beef to discuss if I catch anyone pouring from those little plastic limes. Just don’t.
Happy Cinco De Mayo, and please remember to drink responsibly!
