Cinco de Mayo

We reached out to our Beverage Consultant, Christopher Hudnall, and asked him to put a delicious tequila and mezcal cocktail together in honor of Cinco de Mayo (The Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862). Chris is also a renowned mixologist, and owner/COO of Lost Boy & Co. He has an extensive background in F&B and an immense passion for cocktails and positive guest experiences. So, we’re positive that this recipe is sure to satisfy your Cinco. Drink safely, stay home & enjoy!

1.5 oz Volcan Tequila

.5 oz Banhez Mezcal

Add all ingredients into a shaker, shake, double strain, garnish, serve.


*We created this post during these days of #StayatHome. Though you may not have all of the ingredients readily available in your home, we find that this can also be a time for “experimenting” with the substitutions where you see fit. Do not let substitutions discourage you.

Also, this may not be officially endorsed by on-point bartenders like Chris, but we say feel free to have fun garnishing with different salts or salt-and-sugar combinations if that appeals to you.
