Happy Cinco de Mayo! I'm a total sucker for holidays
(especially ones where heavy drinking is the main festivity), and this one is certainly no exception; how could I not celebrate the heritage of a country whose food, culture, and people are so amazing?
In honor of this day, I put a little twist on one of Mexico's most delicious and beloved beverages, the margarita, by infusing the tequila with a spicy habanero pepper and mixing it with light, fresh grapefruit juice and agave nectar (which is also used to make tequila, and is much healthier than sugary pre-made mixes). The grapefruit juice's sweet-but-tangy flavor mixed with the salt and the little bit of heat from tequila is a sure crowd pleaser. I hope you all have a wonderful day partying it up Mexicana style..
