Cinco de Mayo meet the Coronation, so it’s Cocktail-time

5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th May 2023 for Tequila

It’s Cinco de Mayo on 5th May and this Mexican celebration is the perfect excuse for some exotic cocktails in addition to the King’s Coronation festivities that weekend. You might want to pick a couple of different tequilas for your cocktails, but whichever you choose, make sure that they are properly made, 100% Blue Weber Agave spirits, made in Mexico, so that they are authentic and delicious.First up, KAH Tequila Blanco (40% ABV). Apart from the stunning white ceramic bottle, this tequila is the UK’s No.1 best seller* for at home, ultra-premium cocktails and the good news is that it’s easy to find as it’s sold by Tesco and (£35 for a 70cl bottle or just £30 for Clubcard members when on promotion). The bottle is exclusive to Tesco and has the ‘wow’ factor as a host gift if you are attending a party. It’s the real deal: hand-crafted and bottled in Mexico.Next on the list should be a tequila from the fine Rooster Rojo Tequila range. There are five expressions in the collection. All are 38% ABV except for Ahumado at 40%. If you enjoy rich, smoky drinks then the Ahumado and Smoked Pineapple are the ones to pick. Others include Blanco, Reposado, and Anejo. Several in the range are available from as well as Selfridges and other online drinks retailers so it’s easy to grab yourself a bottle – or two. Priced from £28.60 this is a snip for such a finely made, authentic range of tequilas.

We serve you two cocktails that are fit for a King. For a Cinco de Mayo brunch or early evening aperitif, mix this riff on a Bloody Mary, the KAH Bloody Juanita. KAH means ‘to life’ so is just the thing to raise a toast.

60ml KAH Blanco Tequila

100ml Tomato juice

15ml Fresh lime juice

3 Cherry tomatoes

5 Drops Tabasco or Jalapeno sauce

10 Drops Worcestershire sauce

Salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Traditional occasions call for a classic drink. For the cocktail hour, a Rooster Rojo Margarita is a drink to crow about. For a slight twist on the classic, try this Margarita with Smoked Pineapple Tequila instead.

45ml Rooster Rojo Reposado

30ml Freshly squeezed lime juice

15ml Agave Syrup


First rim your glass with salt. Combine all the ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake then strain into a fine glass. Garnish with a lime wheel or wedge and edible flowers, if available.

Then on 7th May, the UK’s day of jubilation, and 8th May, the Bank Holiday, there’s plenty of time to shake up another tequila cocktail or two with friends and family.
