Cinco de Mayo and tequila just go together, and the Paloma is the vehicle to get you there. A delicious highball of tequila and grapefruit soda, and lots of ice in this tall cooler.
Rum, lime juice, honey and champagne: the Airmail cocktail. Make this Prohibition-era Cuban classic now.
The “daisy” is a sour made with triple sec or orange curaçao instead of straight sugar. The Margarita is one of the most famous examples: white tequila, lime juice, Cointeau and sugar.
The Cosmopolitan Cocktail: citrus vodka, cranberry juice, fresh lime juice and Cointreau.
The Mai Tai: Jamaican rum, light rum, Grand Marnier, orgeat and lime juice. And ice. More ice.
