Hot New Twists On Margarita For Cinco de Mayo By Victoria D'Amato Moran

I am a fan of Cinco de Mayo because I live in Texas where they do Cinco de Mayo up very big. Cinco de Mayo is another reason for American's to celebrate and toast the Margarita - the country's #1 bar call (Cheers, 2008).

And now, just in time for the festivities, Mixologist Victoria D'Amato Moran is turning up the heat with three scorching variations of the signature cocktail.

From coconut and lime to jalapeño and cucumber, each Margarita recipe adds a unique flair to the popular Cinco de Mayo cocktail.

Served on the rocks or frozen, the recipes below share the flavor of Yubari, a rare and expensive melon used to make Midori, the Melon flavored Liqueur.

So on May 5th, make your margarita shine with a flavorful twist of melon and a vibrant green hue.  Check out the fabulous new Margarita Recipes below:

Daily Hair Tip
Hair at the nape of the neck often misbehaves because it is where finer baby hair grows. Harness baby locks w/ faux-jeweled claw clips or smooth on your favorite hair paste or wax to hold fragile strands in place.
