Cinco de Mayo’s just a few days away, and we don’t know about you all, but we are feeling festive. We’re also feeling ambitious, so we thought we’d step away from the traditional margarita pitcher the lovely ladies above are enjoying and try something different. Without further ado, here’s a soothing cocktail, a new spirit and a nod to the latest from our favorite Mayo cerveza. Salud!

Hornitos Lime Shot

Cocktails are great and all, but they can also be a lot of work. On flip side, meet the newest offering from storied tequila purveyor Hornitos. It’s called Lime Shot, and like the BLT potato chip, it combines flavors, placing the salt, tequila and lime together in one bottle and making the shot-drinking process simple and clean. Best of all, it goes down easy, leaving the chicas begging for uno más.

Dos Equis

What can we say, we are huge fans of everything that comes our way from this whimsical brand. Their beer is always smooth and refreshing on a warm spring day (or any day, or night, really), and The Most Interesting Man in the World’s latest announcement is sure to help extend your festivities, which is never a bad thing.
