Watermelon Margarita

You can't have a Cinco de Mayo celebration without margaritas. Sweeten it up a bit by adding agave nectar and cubes of juicy watermelon.

Sol de Flare Cocktail

This fiery cocktail combines tangy blood orange juice, agave and pepper-infused tequila for a kick that's sure to get your fiesta going.

Margarita + Mexican Beer

If "on the rocks" isn't your drink style, serve your margaritas frozen. Add a splash of your favorite Mexican beer for a surprisingly refreshing taste.

Classic Mojito

Even though this rum drink originated in Cuba, this classic mojito recipe will be sure to get your guests in celebration mode.

Rose and Mint Champagne

For an easy way to add color to your party, sprinkle dried rosebuds on champagne cocktails. To enhance the flavor, mix in mint leaves and lime juice.

Guacamole-Inspired Cocktail

That's right — the main ingredient in this margarita is avocado. Serve this cold drink with guacamole dip and tortilla chips.

Margarita With Vodka

Not a fan of tequila? Make a margarita-inspired cocktail with vodka instead. Mix 2 ounces wheat vodka, 1/2 ounce triple sec, 1 ounce sour mix and 2 ounces soda together for a drink that tastes just like the real thing. Photo Courtesy of Van Gogh Vodka

Spicy Mexican Beer

The main feature in The Michelada is Mexican beer. Mix in some hot sauce and pepper for a spicy treat that will complement that queso dip.

Pepper-Infused Tequila

Give your tequila an extra kick by adding peppers. To make this spicy drink, place 1 sliced habanero pepper, 1 sliced serrano pepper and 1 sliced jalapeño into the bottle. Let it sit for 3-4 hours or overnight for extra heat.

Mexican Chocolate Mock-tini

If you'd like to skip the alcohol but not the taste, try a Mexican chocolate mock-tini. The rich flavor is the perfect substitute for dessert.

Frozen Orange Cocktail

It's fruity, refreshing and colorful: This orange cocktail is the perfect companion for your fiesta and a great way to kick off the start of summer.

Pom-Berry Bellini

This pomegranate bellini is as flavorful as it is colorful. Make two different kinds for your party — one with champagne and the other with non-alcoholic champagne or sparkling cider for your non-drinking guests.

Sake + Sangria

Mix sake in your sangria for a tasty cocktail that will have your guests coming back for more.

Classic Sangria

If you don't like sake, go with a classic sangria recipe. Add a twist to it with a splash of champagne.

Virgin Grapefruit Mojito

Agave syrup complements the tart flavor of grapefruit in this virgin mojito. For a light, refreshing taste, garnish it with a sprig of mint.

Fruity Ice Cubes

Don't forget to add some color and flavor to your water. Place your favorite fruit, such as blueberries, lemon and orange slices, in the water next time you fill your ice cube tray. The frozen cubes will give your beverages that extra flavor it needs. Photo by Camille Styles
