Mexican Madras Cocktail

Welcome to May, a month with so many things worth celebrating! Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, and the flowers all of those April Showers promised to bring us, to name a few. As the weather gets warmer, and the days get sunnier, we know everyone is itching to jump into the summer months; and what better way than with a refreshing, summery cocktail! 

In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, we are sharing a favourite of ours: the Mexican Madras. A south-of-the-border spin on the traditional Madras, which was itself a variation of the Cape Cod cocktail (vodka and cranberry with lime), the Mexican Madras replaces the vodka with tequila for a bold, Latin twist.

    For 2 cocktails:

    - 2oz of your favourite tequila
    - 6oz of cranberry juice
    - 1oz of fresh orange juice
    - 1/2oz of fresh lime juice
    - Orange or lime wheel, to garnish

    Directions:

    1- Pour 2oz of tequila, 6oz of cranberry juice, 1oz of fresh orange juice, and 1/2oz of fresh lime juice over ice into a cocktail shaker.
    2- Shake together as desired.
    3- Strain into a rocks glass (you can serve this straight up or on the rocks, it’s up to you!)
    4- Garnish with your choice of an orange or lime wheel.
    5- ENJOY!
