So I know this is very last minute, with Cinco de Mayo being today, but I thought it would be fun to show you how to set up a quick & simple margarita making party! Even beyond this festive day of the year known for its celebration of Mexican-American culture and cuisine, margaritas are a perfect summer drink.

They are my absolute favorite- I’ve always been a citrus fan, and they are such a fun and tasty cocktail with all of the contrasting flavors of sweet, salty, and sour.

The napkins reminded me of a Mexican cement tile pattern. I loved that they are neutral, so I can use them in other places, but they are still on theme.
