You have two party options for this weekend. You can host a party for the Kentucky Derby or Cinco de Mayo. Since I already wrote about party supplies for a Derby party, lets focus on Cinco de Mayo.

In addition to party supplies – bright colored streamers and lanterns, maracas and maybe a piñata – you’re going to need a signature drink for the party.

Pick up a bottle of Gran Centenario tequila. In addition to being the perfect tequila for a margarita, according to Kim Haasarud, The Liquid Chef and author of 101 Margaritas, “a great thing about Gran Centenario Tequila is that because it’s pure agave, there’s a far less chance of hangovers the next morning!”

Here’s a fabulous recipe that you can serve all night long:

Angel’s Dream:
2 oz. Gran Centenario Plata
2 oz. White Cranberry Juice
1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1/4 oz. Agave Nectar
1/4 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Fill a tall mixing glass with ice. Prepare the rim of a chilled martini glass with vanilla sugar. Add all ingredients into mixing glass and shake vigorously. Strain into martini glass and float a strip of lime zest.
