This frosty, citrusy classic is a staple on Cinco de Mayo. The most popular of all tequila cocktails, it may be modified in countless ways. Frozen or on the rocks, with or without salt, the winning combination of tequila, lime, and a hint of orange stands up to just about any other natural flavor. Experiment by adding anything from fruit nectars to cucumbers, or spice it up with jalapenos. No matter which direction you pursue, be sure to use our classic Sugar Cane KISS to keep it sweet and keep it simple.
