Hump Day Happy Hour

Say "Salud!" to Cinco de Mayo With This Sweet Spirit

What started as a tribute to Mexico's victory at The Battle of Puebla (1862) has evolved into a full-blown celebration of all things Mexican… including the mouth-watering margarita. Shaken, frozen or straight up, nothing's more refreshing than this salt-rimmed spirit.

With millions of basic margarita recipes on the Web, we thought we'd treat our readers to something unique: a margarita that replaces tequila with pisco, a Latin libation that's native to Peru. Floral and fruity with hints of white pepper, pisco makes a margarita sweet but spicy with a nice, long finish.

The experts at Pisco Portón helped us create a “Watermelon Peruvian Margarita” that'll inspire you to yell out a Cinco de Mayo “salud!” on behalf of Mexico and Peru.

Even if you're a by-the-book babe, we sincerely suggest you give this matchless margarita a try.

“Watermelon Peruvian Margarita”

 

Ingredients:

2 oz. Pisco Portón

1 slice watermelon

1/2 oz. fresh lime juice

1 oz. simple syrup

Directions: In a cocktail shaker, muddle 2 chunks of watermelon with the lime juice and syrup. Add Pisco Portón and ice, shake and strain into chilled glass. Garnish with a watermelon ball.

 

 

 

  • Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this sweet twist on a traditional favorite.
