It’s Cinco de Mayo and I created this fun cocktail to celebrate. Dante has the most amazing Instagram feed and this cocktail is inspired by their “Fluffy Margarita Royale.” I love the pinch of saffron and the fun a bit of prosecco adds. This is the perfect spring cocktail to enjoy on a pretty evening outside! You can find more fun cocktails here and here!
