A Pink Señorita is a delightfully refreshing cocktail that packs a sweet and sour punch. Partner Post: Looking to up your cocktail game? Find delicious inspiration at Absolut. All opinions are our own.
While we admit that Cinco de Mayo has become an Americanized holiday, we are always up for celebrating with Mexican food and refreshing cocktails. When we found out about the new drink site launched by Absolut, we were both thrilled and intrigued. Absolut provides a comprehensive list of cocktails with brilliant step by step videos to help anyone become a mixologist. So while we normally only post our own original recipes on Superman Cooks, we had to make an exception here. Once we tried the Señorita, we were hooked; we had to share this incredible cocktail with our readers. We just added a bit of cranberry juice to the recipe, and garnished it with fresh mint. Salud!

The Frozen Margarita: Take a classic margarita to an even cooler level by blending with crushed ice. Pair with salty chips and spicy salsa for an instant hot and cold cool down routine on your tongue. See the recipe for a Frozen Margarita.
Tequila Fix: Served over crushed ice, this tequila cocktail is sweetened with honey and spiked with an orange Curaçao liqueur. Serve in a wine glass, garnish with a lime, and enjoy alongside fish dishes with Mexican flair. See the Tequila Fix recipe.
Batanga: Mexican Cola, tequila and lime juice make this simple cocktail perfectly sweet and delightful. The drink is said to have been created in the town of Tequila, Mexico by bar owner Don Javier Delgado Corona. Make a big batch for friends and serve with shredded beef tacos. See the Batanga recipe. Tommy’s Margarita: Skipping the Triple Sec, this cocktail uses a high-quality agave nectar to match the flavors of agave tequila for new, delicious flavors. Pair this glass with your favorite enchilada. See Tommy’s Margarita.
Mexico Pacifico: Another tequila cocktail, this glass of sunshine is made with passion fruit juice and is a great brunch drink. Enjoy with chilaquiles topped with a squeeze of lime juice or as a tart pairing to sweet churros. See the recipe for Mexico Pacifico.
Rosarita Highball: Make a fruity black currant and tequila cocktail that is topped off with a splash of ginger ale and a cucumber slice. While it may be too much to pair this drink with spicy foods, enjoy with a simple side of guacamole and quesadillas. See the Rosarita Highball.
