Mexican Mimosas


It's May. Like, what? Where did the year already go? Oh, I know. Wedding. Honeymoon. Boom, May. To celebrate the gorgeous weather we are having here in AZ (the calm before the fiery pits of hell come upon us), I made us some celebratory drinks. Oh, and because tequila rhymes with Cinco de Mayo. So there's that. Consumers beware, these babies are lethal. I wouldn't suggest serving these as a bottomless mimosa brunch if you know what I mean. Or maybe you should? Things could get a little rowdy. The jalapeno simple syrup gives them the perfect punch of spice, and the mango puree just goes down so smoothly! So break open the tequila, pop the champagne, and let's get some Mexican Mimosas flowin'!


Mexican Mimosas

Ingredients:
  • 1 oz. tequila
  • 3/4 oz. jalapeno simply syrup *
