On Domino.com, NYC mixologists share their best Cinco de Mayo tequila cocktails.
"Your homemade tacos deserve more than just a standard margarita. Here, six New York mixologists offer creative alternatives.
Best Lei’d Plans, created by Aaron Blakely for Yves.
The peppery notes from the Casa Dragones offset the sweetness of the Coco Cuyá very well. We spray mole bitters in the glass before and after you pour the drink in—they really help accentuate those same spicy characteristics of the tequila.”
The Coctel de Lujo, created by Kelly Lopez for Tacombi.
“The fruit and citrus flavors of our fresh jugos inspired this strawberry ginger deluxe cocktail, that delivers a touch of sweet contrast to the crisp peppery notes of Casa Dragones Blanco," says Lopez. "The sweet spice of mulled strawberry and ginger, mellow mint and notes of pepper and clove of Casa Dragones Blanco, all float up in the endless effervescence of sparkling wine.”
The Passionista, created by Craig M. Joseph for Four Seasons Hotel New York.
“Inspired by a drink at the Four Seasons Hotel Punta Mita, this cocktail recalls the glorious sunshine and blue waters of the Pacific Ocean—the fresh tropical fruit, the salty mist of the sea and the vibrant colors of the tropics,” says Joseph."
