While some of us prefer ready-to-drink cocktails, others of us enjoy being at-home mixologists, with our bar carts and home bar tools. Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and we have a couple of cocktails to share with you that you can easily whip up at home to enjoy the holiday with!

Betty Buzz

Actress Blake Lively launched Betty Buzz in the fall of 2021. Although the line of sparkling drink mixers can be enjoyed by themselves for a non-alcoholic beverage, you can also use them as mixers with alcohol to make a delicious cocktail.  The mixers come in flavors including: Tonic Water, Meyer Lemon Club Soda, Ginger Beer, Sparkling Grapefruit and Sparkling Lemon Lime.

Check out this recipe, courtesy of Betty Buzz, for a Hot & Spicy Paloma.

Tres Agaves Tequila

After founding Tres Agaves restaurant, Barry Augus launched a Tres Agaves product line so that consumers could make the popular margaritas that were served in the San Francisco restaurant at home. The brand makes cocktail-ready agave nectar, margarita mix and Tequila. Every great margarita begins with an exceptional tequila and that’s what Tres Agaves Tequila provides. They make three different tequilas, from mildest to more intense: Blanco, Reposado and Añejo. Regardless of how you like your tequila, Tres Agaves has a bottle for all tastes.

And here is a delicious cocktail that they shared with us, using the Agave Blanco tequila. For additional inspiration, check out their site for a full library of cocktails!
