For the following recipes, we retooled the daiquiri with festive flowers, available at most health or Mexican food stores; added booze to almost two cups worth of fruit (which means it’s healthy, right?); and said, “Yes way” to rosé with a Fiesta-ready wine cocktail that’s at least more on trend than wine margaritas at NIOSA.
Try them when you’re taking a break from stacking cups or when you’re pre-gaming for Cornyation or at your Flambeau-viewing party. Viva Fiesta!
