With Cinco de Mayo around the corner, I thought I'd hook you up with a fun and easy Mexican spiced cocktail. Living in LA, we love our Mexican food and beverage. It doesn't have to be any special day of the week for us to enjoy some great Mexican flavors.

So in addition to giving you a great cocktail, I'm also going to give you some other ideas so you can make your own Mexican fiesta from starters to salad and mains - all gluten free, dairy free and free from refined sugar.

Spicy Black Bean Guacamole

Guacamole is an easy and delicious starter, but we've all been there, done that, so how about throwing in some black beans and added spice for something new and different. (Click the picture or title to go directly to the recipe).

Mexican Three Bean Salad


Three bean salads are a quick and fast side that get a more interesting nod with some Mexican spices like cumin, cilantro and lime.

Chicken Tacos, Black Bean Burgers, Collard Green Chicken Roll Ups

Tacos are a no-brainer for Cinco de Mayo or a Mexican feast, so make a spicy, dairy free cabbage slaw to layer on, or wrap in a collard green for a healthy burrito. Better yet, mash black beans with quinoa to create a burger, topped with guacamole. 

Spicy Mango Margarita, Jalapeno Mint Moscow Mule

Mangos bring a fresh taste to this Mango-rita or keep with the spicy jalapeno theme to give a twist to a Moscow Mule.

Spicy Cucumber Mint Margarita

Makes 2 cocktails


  • 4 ounces white tequila
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier
  • 2 ounces fresh cucumber juice
  • 1/2 ounce jalapeno juice
  • 1 lime
  • 20 mint leaves


  1. Cut the lime into 4 wedges and place in the bottom of a cocktail shaker with the mint leaves. Muddle the lime and mint together until fragrant.
  2. To create the cucumber and jalapeno juice, use a juicer. You can also use a blender and then strain the pulp. One other option is to muddle jalapeno slices with the mint and lime.
  3. Add ice and the remaining ingredients and shake until combined and cold.
  4. If you'd like a salted rim, line a small plate with chili spice and salt. Wet the rims of your glasses and run the rim around the salted plate.
