There are two keys to successful social cocktailing on America’s favorite Mexican holiday. The first is quality tequila, and the second is ease of mass preparation. This is a festival of pitchers more than pint glasses, and you should fill yours this Cinco de Mayo with the Peach-a-Rita ($12), as presented by Isla Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar at Treasure Island.

Instead of salt, the Peach-a-Rita’s cinnamon-sugar rim makes the blue agave medicine go down in a most delightful way. This sugar bomb continues with frozen peaches, rock-candy syrup and grenadine, packing a sugar high along with its boozy rush. Blend up a batch for your homestyle fiesta or check in at Isla to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride in style.
