We get it: Some days you just want to skip all the in-depth cocktail recipes in favor of sticking to the basics. (Or you may not have all the trimmings to make a jazzed-up cocktail, especially while we continue to social distance and stay at home.) Tequila Cazadores gets it too: crisp, clean, and classic, there’s nothing better than the sweet, fresh flavor of a traditional Tequila Cazadores Margarita for Cinco de Mayo.
