Happy Cinco de Mayo! This day was much celebrated in college.
Every single year.
It’s funny because I can’t seem to recollect much from the Cinco de Mayo celebrations!? Too much tequila, maybe?! Probably… yes. We celebrated every single holiday in college. Times have changed and my vegan body hurts if I have more than a glass of wine nowadays! I like to think that’s a good thing because my system is clean, but it also makes me feel a little pathetic when I think back to a few years ago. I would much rather have a clean and pure body though! I try to limit my alcohol intake now. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good glass of red wine with dinner but I rarely drink hard liquor anymore. Sure I will while on vacation or for a birthday but nothing like I used to! We still have to live and enjoy life, right?!
I did my research and I am here to provide you with a Vegan-Friendly list of Tequila for all you party people. Maybe some of you will make good use of this list. I know I just mentioned I try to limit hard liquor, but then I thought summer is coming, and tequila sure is wonderful in the summer months. And I am sure I will have a celebration or two 😉 While I will not be adding tequila to my Watermelon Freeze-a-Rita tonight (recipe below), you are welcome to. Enjoy a Vegan-Style Cinco De Mayo! Don’t forget to pin the picture beneath the list so you have this list on hand!

And now, on to my Watermelon Margarita!!
This is a simple slushie-like drink that has only three ingredients, no added sweeteners (because the watermelon is sweet enough!) and its oh-so-refreshing. The mix of watermelon and lime complement each other perfectly, especially on a hot & sweaty summer day.
Tequila is included in the recipe but you could do just watermelon and lime for an alcohol-free version.
It’s my go-to drink and I’m obsessed!!!
- 5 cups frozen watermelon (cubed and frozen for at least 5 hours)
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (approximately 2-3 limes)
- 1 cup tequila (optional)
- Blend until it reaches a slushie-like consistency!
