Sangria Margarita

How do you make a shot of tequila on Cinco de Mayo even better?

Serve it up with more booze, wine and fruit!

This recipe brings together the best of two great drinks. It’s sweet, but not overly so, and the sweetness comes more from the fruit than artificial flavorings. The tequila and grand marnier impart a clear margarita flavor while being balanced by the dry, slightly buttery wine. The base is accented by hints of cinnamon and citrus. And, most importantly for Cinco de Mayo, it’s quite strong.

Not too much more to say – it’s a bunch of delicious fruit and alcohol. Drink up!
