There’s one thing we know for sure: the perfect Cinco de Mayo celebration calls for the perfect margarita. And the best margarita calls for the best tequila. That’s why we look to the premium flavor of Dano’s Tequila—it’s smooth and easy to drink, handcrafted in small batches at the second oldest tequila distillery in the world--and the ideal foundation to all your Cinco de Mayo drinks.
We asked mixologists at two of Miami’s hottest venues to share their recipes for a perfect Dano’s cocktail.
