Cinco de Drinco!

Of course every Cinco de Mayo involves a couple of these.
Inspired by The Coastal Margarita from Coastal Living
(Throw some fresh strawberries in the mix for
sweet, fresh strawberry margaritas).

No Cinco de Mayo celebration is complete without tacos!
Carne Asada Taco with Avocado Pico de Gallo

A little breakdown:
The meat calls for a 3 hour marination period-
but if you are short for time
adding some lime zest to the marinade really adds flavor
and cuts down at least an hour.
(Or add it if you just love lime).

This pico de gallo is super flavorful and a must for avocado lovers.
Make sure to buy avocados a day or two before.
If they are still firm, throw them in a paper bag
and put them on top of the fridge.
This will really help get them to where they need to be.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!
