It's Cinco de Mayo, which means it's margarita time! Who am I kidding?! It's always margarita time. Am I right?! If you know me, you know that I love margaritas. It's probably more so to do with the fact that I love salt. Give me a salt-rimmed margarita (or two!), chips, salsa, freshly made guacamole and I am one happy gal. If you like margaritas (and want some recipe inspiration) check out ¡Hola! Jalapeño's Margarita Week.
One of my absolute favorite cocktails is the Perro Oaxaqueño, Oaxaca's version of a Salty Dog. It's a cocktail of mezcal and grapefruit juice, served in a highball glass with a salted rim. It's so easy to make and only requires 3 ingredients.
If you happen to find yourself in Oaxaca go and visit my amigos over at Mezquite. Tip: Go around sunset to enjoy your Perro Oaxaqueño on their rooftop patio as you watch the sky turn lovely shades of pink. #eatdrinkcookmexico
