#DrinkingBuddies: Cinco de Mayo Edition
By Jeff Eckenrode
When the gentle, spring sun shines lazily through the morning fog, and the crisp, morning breeze blows gently through cheaply made, adhesive mustaches, it can only mean one thing. Yes, my friends. It is Cinco de Mayo!
And no matter who you are or where you’re from, Cinco de Mayo is a great opportunity to get together with your friends, throw back a few shots, and honor the Mexican Army’s underdog victory over France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862. #KnowledgeBomb #TheMoreYouKnow
But if inexpensive straw sombreros and buckets of room-temperature margaritas aren’t your style, then don’t panic: You’re not alone! In fact, your favorite Hashtag budtenders are working hard to find the very best pot to accompany your tequila and tequila cocktails.
So, let’s get to it! Here are Hashtag’s top five weed & tequila pairings:
Saints' Marmalade & Tequila Blanco
Saints’ latest 50/50 hybrid strain, Marmalade, is a mellow & uplifting cross of Blueberry Cake and Sour Tsunami that is quickly gaining popularity for both its funky aroma and sweet, earthy flavors. And it pairs perfectly with the snappy, clean taste of a tequila blanco (particularly Bar Charlie’s Cinco de Mayo special). Marmalade is just the thing to take the edge off and unwind on this Cinco de Mayo.
Top Shelf's Oregon Diesel & Tequila Reposado
Oregon Diesel’s tingly & lush body effects are just the thing to help you and your carefree crew loosen up! Paired with the briny bite of a tequila reposado, Oregon Diesel, with its bold, piney flavors, is the perfect strain to accompany you and your friends for this year’s celebration.
Western Cultured's Acapulco Gold & Tequila Añejo
Acapulco Gold by Western Cultured is a sweet and earthy departure from the norm. Its focused and uplifting head high blends effortlessly with the smooth, woody flavors of a tequila añejo. It’s the perfect match for any fiesta, big or small!
Avitas' Dragon OG & a Margarita
A budtender favorite, Dragon OG is the smoothest, zestiest choice for this Cinco de Mayo. Its refreshing citrusy flavor pairs well with the sour and sweet taste of a margarita. You’ll love it so much that you’ll go back for more again, again, and again!
Sky High Gardens' Frozen Tangerine & a Tequila Sunrise
If you’re headed to a bar (or two) this Cinco de Mayo and just can’t wait to toast your favorite amigos, then Frozen Tangerines from Sky High Gardens is right for you! This tart and tangy hybrid boasts a fruity aroma that invigorates the senses and stimulates the mind. Paired with a Tequila Sunrise, Frozen Tangerine is the perfect choice for party-goers everywhere.
