For Cinco de Mayo we made a DIY margarita flight board and experimented with a few different margarita recipes! Here are our three favorites that made the cut.

Spicy Pineapple Margarita

The tangy and sweet flavors of the pineapple are perfectly complemented by the bold and spicy kick of serrano pepper, making this the perfect drink for anyone who loves a flavorful and exciting cocktail. Served over ice, this delicious margarita is perfect for sipping on a hot summer day or enjoying with friends at a party.
