Class up your Cinco de Mayo with a Tequila Mojito

Don’t celebrate this Cinco de Mayo by being one of those ignorantly racist jackasses who get shithammered on Corona and call it “Cinco de Drinko.” Seriously, it makes you look like an ass.

With the Tequila Mojito, you’ll be able to pair your cocktail with some honest-to-God Mexican cuisine and be culturally sensitive at the same time.
