Well folks we made somehow made it to another CINCO DE MAYO! Yup, that great holiday that gives all of us here in America an excuse to drink copious amounts of tequila, gorge ourselves on chips and guac and possibly not remember what happened the next morning.  OH yeeeeaaa all under the guise of celebrating our Mexican brethren. That being said with out them we would lose so much culture that we love here in America and there certainly would be no Cinco de Mayo. I digress…on to the drinking!

I don’t often do sponsored posts but I couldn’t resist for a couple reasons. First, because I love a good cocktail and secondly because I really love a good cocktail! haha Actually this reminds me a lot of myself..bold, sassy and delicious just to give you a small idea of what’s to come!

Did u know that there was such a thing as a Margarita of The Year Competition? I sure as heck didn’t but thanks to my friends at Patron I recently received the low down on what this year’s marg of the year was all about.

A little spicy, a little floral, with a great sweetness and a whole lotta tequila the Margarita of the Year iiiiissssss thhheeeee…. Rosa Picante!


This cocktail certainly earned its place as Margarita of the Year but I have to ask WHO COMES UP WITH THIS STUFF?!?! I’m usually so thirsty and so ready to drink that I don’t have time to break out the rosewater, jalapeño oil and ginger syrup. On the other hand if you can restrain yourself long enough (or have Jordan Corney to craft this for you) to go out and get the ingredients and make a batch, and please do make a batch cause you know you’re gonna want more than one, this is a really special cocktail maybe even something different for next Valentine’s Day even!
