Cinco de Mayo Margaritas

Posted: 05/ 4/11 04:12 PM ET

Happy Cinco de Mayo! While today may not actually be Mexico's true Independence Day (that's technically September 16), nobody can deny the holiday's popularity.

It's also, of course, one of the year's biggest drinking celebrations. And no party would be complete without a round of tasty Margaritas. The classic cocktail is a simple but ingenious balance of sweet, citrus and tequila.

From the traditional to the exotic, here are five of our favorite recipes for the festive drink. ¡Salud!

(And if you're looking for even more tequila cocktails, check out our other gallery.)
