What kind of Cinco De Mayo adventure do you have coming your way?


Oh, Cinco De Mayo. A day of celebration...but also, a day that can easily carry you away. So how will you be approaching your 5th of May this year? Will you come out a winner or will the day take you over? Let's tackle just that. But, in a cocktail. 

Hm. Cocktails that come to mind when you think of Cinco De Mayo? Margaritas. Well, I do love margaritas like no other, but can we get a little more crazy than that? Hell yes, we can. I mean, this is a day of endless possibilities, why wouldn't we get a little dangerous? Exactly. Good. We're all on the same Bar de Bex post. I want you to know, that I do care about you, and I really do want to ensure you with confidence and protection so you will survive this journey. And what better way to do that than with some liquid courage?

Ah, ask and you shall receive, my friend. I have for you just that: "Dragon Armor." This is a dragon fruit tequila elixir that will help you slay your day. This marvelous tequila drink is a refreshing burst of energy with bites of lime, dragon fruit, and that Italian aperitivo to start you off strong. It's got a fight in it, may you use it how you will. 


Let's concoct:

  • 1.5 oz Tequila
  • 0.5 oz Cappelletti Aperitivo Americano
  • 1/4 Dragon Fruit
  • 0.5 oz Lime
  • 0.25 oz Simple Syrup

*Muddle dragon fruit and lime. Combine remaining ingredients in mixing tin and shake vigorously with ice. Dump into a double rocks or Collin's glass and top with crushed ice. Garnish with small dragon fruit slivers on a pick if that excites you.
