If you are looking for quick Cinco de Mayo drinks to whip up and celebrate with later tonight (or maybe today, which is ok too), these raw sugar and vanilla margaritas are sublime. From food blog Hungry Girl por Vida, the cocktails combine the sweet creaminess of vanilla with tart citrus to create what blogger Cindy calls an "adult creamsicle minus orange and dairy, plus lime and booze."

Extremely easy to mix up for cocktail hour, the Cinco de Mayo drinks consist of a raw sugar and vanilla bean syrup (which can also be added to your morning coffee if you have leftovers), lime juice, tequila, water and a vanilla salt rim. They are ideally served with lime wedges over crushed ice.
