Cinco de Mayo is this weekend, so it’s time to figure what exactly you’ll be drinking for the night.  

Cinco de Mayo, similar to St. Patrick's Day, has become a massive drinking holiday in the United States. It is often used as an excuse to party, get drunk, and go out with friends. That can be a great time, but some people prefer to stay home.

As a homebody myself, I enjoy making a cocktail with my friends and family at home, and having a chill night that way. If you are the same way, or you are hosting a Cinco de Mayo party and want a fun drink to serve, I have a great list of options.

Of course, you have to enjoy some tequila, so I've put together five iconic tequila-based cocktails that not only taste good, but will get the job done if you are looking to get a bit tipsy. Of course, drink responsibly when you try one of these five recipes (or all of them).
