Cinco de Mayo: 3 Tequila Cocktails by Beautifulbooze

Posted on 03/05/2019 by Eileen Schuch

Wednesday, I am loving the sound of that because it chimes Weekend is approaching! And who says weekend, says cocktails – at least that’s how we hold it at coolbrandz. If you follow me in Social Media, you will have picked up on the fact that I am a cocktail aficionado. Since I am fifteen, I am dreaming about having my own cocktail bar.

While I am working on putting that plan into action, I am following a couple of Instagram accounts of likeminded people; one of them Natalie Migliarini aka @beautifulbooze. It is the most beautiful, colourful, boozy stream that you can imagine. Her recipes are inspiring and her photography fabulous.

Whenever I had a hard day, I am heading over to her blog to find inspiration and maybe recreate some of the cocktails she elaborates. Mine just never look as good, but hey, it really is the taste I am after. So for the upcoming Cinco de Mayo, here three of Natalie’s Tequila recipes that I recreated at home and that just blew my mind!
