“The Cocktail Professor” LaTanya White checked in on Friday, ahead of #NationalTequilaDay, to offer up a recipe for an awesome tequila cocktail that even non-tequila drinkers will enjoy.

LaTanya’s drink: The Jalisco
1-1.5 oz aged tequila
Your favorite coconut water
Agave nectar
Fresh lime

On Friday I checked in with “The Cocktail Professor” LaTanya White to grab three recipes for Cinco de Mayo cocktails that are not margaritas or a beer and are perfect for the summer season. You can hear our chat and check out the recipes below.

From LaTanya:

– The Mexican Commissioner: a take on a 71 Proof Krewe favorite, mix your favorite brand of Mezcal with triple sec and fill pineapple for a smoky toast to la revolucion!

– Felpa Mayo: a sexy summer treat that will take you right to Midtown since it’s a Cinco de Mayo twist on another favorite, Midtown Plush! Take the lovely St Germaine Elderflower Liqueur, add a splash of high quality tequila, top with club soda and squeeze fresh lime…it’s so plush!

– Lastly, Kanye gave the original recipe when he said “You mix the Goose with Malibu and we call it Malibu-yah!”…well for Cinco de Mayo, we take that Goose and use tequila, keep the Malibu and add a healthy splash of pineapple for The Mexicana!
