Cinco de Mayo Sunday Funday * Sauza-Ritas with Spiked Stars

Apr 22, 2013

Get ready to miss the weekend already…

I love Cinco de Mayo but in all the Derby madness around here, it can sometimes get lost in the shuffle. This year I’m vowing to make sure to celebrate my love for all things Mexican with a Sunday Funday on the day after Derby (yes, the official holiday of margaritas comes the day after the official holiday of the mint julep – get your liver ready).

When Sauza Blue tequila asked me to put together my plan for a Cinco de Mayo celebration, I jumped at the opportunity (literally, I may have popped out of my seat a little when I got the note). I love me a margarita, a girls day (or night) and an opportunity for some day drinking. I immediately got to work pinning together a board of my party inspiration (more on that later). One glance and you’ll get what I’m imagining. A relaxing outdoor fiesta where my gal pals and I could lounge around while gossiping and drinking margaritas in the sun. A pool would be ideal but since my backyard is definitely lacking in that area, a kiddie pool might have to do the trick.

No Cinco de Mayo would be complete without margs and Sauza sent over a tasty recipe but I wanted to add a little oomph. Then I saw this.  I feel a little bad about turning this refreshing treat for kids into a boozy party favor but oh well.

I’m kind of obsessed with stars so this may be the favorite little party concoction I’ve ever done. I’m planning on making these Spiked Stars all summer long. They’re so easy to make and you can just keep them in the freezer and break them out whenever you’re in the mood for a cocktail.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Here’s the recipe for the Sauza-ritas:
* 1 bottle of Sauza Blue Tequila (I used a little less since I used a 1/2 cup for the spiked stars)
* 1 can of Limeade
* 1 Lite Beer (We ALWAYS have Coors Light in our house but any beer will do!)
* 1 can of water Mix together, add ice, stir, add some limes for garnish and say cheers!

Side note: When making the spiked stars, I added a squirt of lime juice to the tequila to give them a twist.

So there you have it! My very first recipe post here on Lou What Wear. What do you think? Should we try this out again or leave it to the professionals?

    This comment is totally random but a few weeks ago I was telling you that I was in need of your sold-out sun-ray collar from baublebar. you advised me to check back, and woohoo, it’s back in stock! I purchased the multi-color one – so cute! thanks for the tip.

    • Danielle says:

      Yay I’m so happy you were able to find it again! BaubleBar is great about restocking so I thought you had a good chance of getting it once it came back!
      Hope you love it!

    I LOVE THIS!!! The drink sounds so yummy, perfect for summer. And the stars…YES!! Anything that involves watermelon, I’m all about it. I bet you could do the spiked stars with star fruit too!


  5. Those stars are such a cute idea! They’d work perfect for 4th of July too! I don;t know if I’ll last until Cinco de Mayo after Derby, but the margs sure make me want to try!
