Cinco de Mayo Cocktails with Sipp Sparkling Organics

With Cinco de Mayo this weekend, its the perfect time to add some new tequila cocktails to your repertoire. Sipp Sparkling Organics makes it super simple; just add your favorite tequila and some fresh garnishes to one of their delicious flavors, serve it over ice, and you’re good to go!

I love Sipp because they’re USDA organic, lightly sweetened with agave, and come in really creative and thoughtful flavor combinations perfect for pairing with food. When I was pregnant, I loved drinking these as a virgin cocktail option- it still felt like I had something special and fun to sip on. Below are two of my favorite libations for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations. For best results, pair these cocktails with copious amounts of chips, guac, salsa, and queso.

Zesty Orange Lime Jalapeno 

In a short glass, pour 1 shot of your favorite tequila over ice. Squeeze in the juice of 1/2 a lime, and pour over enough Sipp to fill your glass to the brim. Stir gently, garnish with a twist of orange zest, and enjoy!

Ginger Blossom Vanilla Lime

In a short glass, pour 1 shot of your favorite tequila over ice. Grate in 1/8th teaspoon fresh ginger (more or less depending on how spicy you like it), and pour over enough Sipp to fill your glass to the brim. Stir gently, garnish with a twist of lime zest, and enjoy!

Vegan Tres Leches Cake

This recipe turns the beloved tres leches classic into an ultra-delicious dairy free vegan treat. You won’t miss the traditional milk one bit in this rich, decadent, and utterly indulgent dessert. Coconut milk features front and center in this recipe, lending it a sunny, tropical flavor that’s not exactly traditional, but no less delicious. Both vegans and dairy-lovers alike will be charmed by this crowd-pleasing tres leches cake.

Tex Mex Frittata

This Tex Mex Frittata brings all your favorite taqueria flavors to brunch. Sweet caramelized onion, spicy serrano pepper, and savory cotija cheese come together with healthy veggies and protein packed eggs in this delicious dish. Frittatas are an excellent vehicle for all the extra veggies in your fridge, and taste delicious hot or cold. Make this for yourself and enjoy the leftovers all week, or serve it up to a hungry crowd and wait for the compliments to roll in!

Note: This recipe utilizes a spiralizer. If you don’t have one, you can thinly slice the vegetables, and then cut them into bite size pieces. You can serve this frittata hot, room temperature, or even cold. You can also serve with a side of avocado, salsa, hot sauce, guacamole, chopped cilantro, and/or sour cream.
