Raise the Bar this Cinco de Mayo with Entertaining Tips & Food Pairings from Skinnygirl

“Raise the bar” at your Cinco de Mayo party with the help of Skinnygirl® Cocktails! Check out our entertaining and pairing tips below to make your fiesta a hit.

No Cinco de Mayo get-together is complete without a delicious margarita, and Skinnygirl® Cocktails has margarita offerings that will please every taste bud. Your guests can enjoy the new great taste of Skinnygirl® Margarita, which is lightly sweetened with agave nectar and tequila for a light and refreshing flavor.

For a twist on the traditional margarita, we have the new Skinnygirl® Spicy Lime Margarita, a balance of cool lime, spicy chili and tequila; Skinnygirl® Sweet ‘n Tart Grapefruit Margarita, a blend of tangy citrus with notes of lime and grapefruit; Skinnygirl® White Peach Margarita, which offers flavors of sweet and juicy peach with tropical tones and lime and Skinnygirl® Sweet’arita, featuring a hint of sweetness with flavors of sweet lime, orange and tequila.
