Ok, so it’s a few days after Cinco de Mayo , and you’ve still got a ton of tequila left over.What do you do? Well you can keep the Cinco party going and celebrate Ocho, Nueve, and Diaz De Mayo or you can get mom a little tipsy and finally be her favorite son or daughter. It’s still 5 o clock somewhere, the warm weather is here, and let’s be honest, margaritas don’t go out of style for another 5 months so you might pour up few more of these.  We get a lot of great recipes sent our way, and these are some we didn’t get a chance to share for Cinco.
