Be Adventurous – There’s More to Cinco de Mayo than Margaritas

We’ve all had Margarita regret. Sitting there after 4 margaritas and a basket of chips (or three) and wondering what happened… for all those calories – where was the taste?

Don’t make that mistake again – it’s not worth it. But get some of your greatest friends together and mix up this bad boy.

Also, the Extra Ginger Brew is packed with 26 grams of ginger. The amazing root is known for curing nausea, headaches and muscle soreness so you are loading up on hangover remedies before it hits. We’ve tested this theory on hundreds of Dark & Stormy’s so we are confident that it’s true. We want you to enjoy Seis de Mayo as much as Cinco de Mayo!


For garnish (can be used for more than one cocktail):

  • 1/4 cup blood orange juice
  • Zest of one blood orange
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Slices of blood orange, for garnish

For one drink:


For the garnish:

Place 1/4 cup of the blood orange juice into a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the blood orange zest and sugar.

Dip the rim of a high ball glass into the orange juice first, and then into the orange zest-sugar mixture to coat the rim evenly.

For the drink:

In a cocktail shaker, combine a cup of ice, 2 ounces blood orange juice, 1.5 ounces tequila, and a squeeze of lime juice. Close the shaker and shake vigorously. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, combine ingredients in a liquid measuring cup and stir well.

Pour beverage from shaker into the prepared high ball glass. Top drink off with ginger beer and stir lightly with a mixing stick or small spoon. Garnish the rim with a blood orange slice and serve immediately.
