Cinco De Gay-O



Today is Cinco de Cuatro.

But we suspect all non-Arrested Development fans will be celebrating tomorrow’s Cinco de Mayo instead.

Either way, you should be serving tequila. It’s the American way.


Not just any tequila, though. A really, really nice one. Like Casa Dragones Blaco, a new ultra-premium blanco tequila ($75/bottle) that’s ideal for mixing or enjoying on the rocks, and is made from 100% Pure Blue Agave.

Here are four go-to recipes that’ll make you and your friends forget about that gal Margarita for a while.
