Cancun Sunset Cocktail

Can you believe tomorrow is may 1st??!! That means Cinco De Mayo is only a few days away. And after all the craziness of the last couple of years we could certainly use an excuse to celebrate! This Cancun Sunset Cocktail is perfect for the occasion.

I chose the name “Cancun Sunset” for this drink because it reminds me of the beautiful red and orange sunsets of Cancun (and Tequila Sunrise was already taken). I wanted to create a festive drink that was somewhere between a Margarita and a Tequila Sunrise.

This drink will be the perfect addition to your Cinco De Mayo cocktail selection. You can make them individually or mix up a big pitcher to share!

If you are a fan of Margaritas, you will love this drink. It is so simple and delicious!

Just fill a cocktail shaker half full of ice then add the pineapple juice, strawberry lemonade, fresh lime juice, tequila and Grand Marnier  or Cointreau. Shake and then strain into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with strawberries and lime.

To make a pitcher to share, just mix all of the ingredients in a pitcher (minus the ice) and chill for a few hours. Serve in your favorite glass over ice.

Don’t forget the tacos and all of the other yummies that go along with it. Check out these easy recipes that will have you celebrating in no time.

Happy Cinco De Mayo! Salud!
