Cinco de Mayo Mini Patrón Margaritas

Happy Cinco de Drinko! We Americans will find any excuse to have a drink in hand, right? A couple of years ago, I was in Cabo on Cinco de Mayo and my husband and I had our own Cinco de turnup. You know why? Because they don't celebrate that shit in Mexico (outside of Puebla, that is). I won't bore you with a history lesson, but I will share a celebratory cocktail that'll make whatever today is irrelevant. 

These mini patrón margarita shots are as cute as they are good, and while I strongly encourage you to also have a full sized version, these make for awesome party favors...or starters.  


What you'll need

  • 50 ml patrón bottles (I acquired a 200 ml bottle from a Patron event but had no luck finding it in store. If you have better luck than me, first let me know and then make larger versions). 
  • Juice from half a lime  
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or simple syrup  
  • salt for garnish (optional. I HATE salt on my margaritas) 

*Makes one* Pour tequila, lime juice and sugar in cocktail shaker over ice. Wet rims of tequila bottles and coat in salt. Shake vigorously. Using a small funnel, pour mix back into tequila bottle. Cut straws in half and stick in bottles. Enjoy.
