You obviously need a tasty margarita to celebrate Cinco De Mayo! We have recently started trying our hand at making cocktails here in the BabeCave, so we tested our skills for a margarita on the rocks. We followed a recipe from simplejoy.com and were extremely impressed!

This recipe will make a pitcher of margs that serves 6.

  • 1 1/2 cup of tequila (we used
  • 1 1/4 cup sweet and sour mix
  • 1/2 cup triple sec
  • 2 limes, quartered
  • Kosher salt
  • Tajin
  • Combine all liquid ingredients into a large pitcher
  • Cut limes into quarters, then cut small slit in middle of slices
  • Rub sliced lime around rim of glass and dip in kosher salt and Tajin
  • Serve margarita mix over ice and enjoy!


Queso is a staple food here in Texas and you can almost always find a batch of this creamy goodness at home parties and gatherings. Many Texans feel strongly about their love for yellow queso vs. white queso, but we are all equally obsessed with this white queso recipe from thecookierookie.com! It is a quick and easy recipe to make for your Cinco De Mayo festivities!
