This year, truly celebrate Mexican heritage with the plant that started it all, the agave

This year, truly celebrate Mexican heritage with the plant that started it all, the agave. Whether you’re partial to a crisp, classic blanco, a rich reposado, or a spicy añejo, Tequila Don Julio has got you covered.

Crafted by Miami Mixologist Eddie Fuentes, the below recipe highlights the agave and fresh flavors in Tequila Don Julio in new and unexpected ways. Serving these specialty cocktail made with only the best ingredients will impress friends and add an authentic feel to the festivities.

“Like Mexican cuisine, this drink is vibrant in color, a little spicy, and deeply satisfying. I wanted to create a sensory experience, and bringing the smoke into the cocktail allows all the senses to be activated while highlighting the versatility of the Tequila Don Julio Añejo. The fresh ingredients, smoke, and cooked agave expressions of the tequila remind me of a hot night in Mexico right before the sun starts to set.”

Ingredients

For the pink peppercorn syrup:

  • 2 1/2 Ounces crushed pink peppercorn
  • 16 Ounces ginger root juice
  • 32 Ounces sugar
  • Pinch of salt

For the cocktail:

  • 1 1/2 Ounce tequila, such as Tequila Don Julio Añejo
  • 1/2 Ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 Ounce pink peppercorn syrup
  • 1/3 Ounce carrot juice with fresh turmeric
  • Mescal spray
  • Candied ginger, marigold petals, fresh pink peppercorn, and lemon verbena, for garnish

Fabulous recipes for your Cinco de Mayo Fiesta

Mexican food is rife with options. Nachos, quesadillas, chilaquiles, tostadas, enchiladas, tacos, burritos, mole — and the list goes on. Not only with more types of dishes but also with different preparations of each type. With so many alternatives, many of which come in multiple flavors, how does one choose? Whether you are looking for one dish or several, our archives are brimming with recipes to support your Cinco de Mayo plans.

For a snack or as an appetizer, B.S. Taqueria’s nachos are bomb! Layers of habanero-spiked pinto beans, spicy picadillo, tangy escabeche, creamy cheese sauce, a tomatillo-avocado salsa and pico de gallo are all piled onto fresh tortilla chips. Oven-baked nachos are also very flavorful and the simpler preparation will save you some time.

Tacos make good snacks as well as meals. They come in many flavors: Hatch chile pork (made using an Instant Pot), Oaxacan string cheese (they’re vegetarian) and vegan jackfruit carnitas to name a few. It is fun to mix and match and they are a great vehicle for condiments like pickled jalapeños, verduras encurtidas, guacamole, salsa de molcajete and smoky salsa de chipotle. The salsas and guac are also great dips for tortilla chips and those pickled vegetables.

For cheese lovers, quesadillas are quick and easy. Try black bean and mushroom with avocado crema or huitlacoche quesadillas. There is also plenty of queso blanketing these green enchiladas, which are filled with chicken and tomatillo salsa. In classic red enchiladas, the cheese is on the inside. Tofu enchiladas are another vegetarian option and go a little easier on the cheese.

To mark the holiday, many Mexicans eat Mexico’s national dish, the chocolatey, spicy, rich mole poblano, which originally hails from Puebla, where that famed battle of Cinco de Mayo was won. Puebla was a culinary center in Mexico and also fostered Mexico’s most patriotic dish: chiles en nogada. Poblano chiles are filled with a blend of meat and spices that is studded with dried fruits, served with a white, nut-based sauce and garnished with pomegranate arils and chopped parsley. The composed dish brandishes the colors of the Mexican flag.

Calabacitas and Cacao Mexicatessen cilantro lime rice are excellent side dishes for both the rich, saucy barbacoa de borrego and pulled chicken in mission fig mole sauce. Frijoles Aztecas (black beans with nopalitos) are a good match for Esperanza’s chipotle chicken.

A nice cold Michelada could be just the thing to accompany many of these dishes — and this one tastes just like what they serve at Dodger Stadium. If tequila is more your thing, margaritas may be in order — perhaps a guava margarita as a change from the classic preparation. No alcohol? No problem! Like most Mexican food, horchata comes in many flavors. This one is made from pumpkin seeds and it’s dairy-free too!

Chocolate is always welcome after a meal (and most any other time, as well) and Mexican chocolate pot de crème is a luxurious finish. Lighter and more portable, tortitas de Santa Clara, another creation from Puebla, are a nice alternative, and they are great dunked in Mexican hot chocolate.
