For today’s #DrinkYourGram, I’m shaking up a salty cocktail made with Blanco Tequila, Campari, Strawberry and Salty Paloma’s Heartbreaker rim. Inspired by Cinco de Mayo, I decided to whip up something that WASN’T a margarita, even though all your votes made it seem like that’s the only thing you wanted. Well here’s something different that I guarantee you will love!
If you’re new to the #DrinkYourGram concept, I started it on IG as a way to get creative with your votes! Every Tuesday I set up a theme and you get to vote on my stories of what cocktail you’d like to see. With Cinco de Mayo, I figured everyone wanted some agave this week, so I made this delicious number here. Want to learn how it’s made? Head below for details.
A delicious strawberry, campari and blanco tequila sipper you can enjoy all year round.
