Cinco de Mayo is this upcoming Monday, so this week’s Thirsty Thursday is dedicated to getting prepared. Thankfully, for those of us who can’t handle tequila as well as other spirits, there’s a margarita for us. It may not pack a punch the way the classic can, but this one tastes plenty good and you can sip it all night without waking up with a colossal headache.

What you’ll need:
2 oz vodka
1 oz triple sec
2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
1 oz fresh squeezed clementine juice
Clementine wheel
Dash of tabasco sauce

Combine the vodka, triple sec, and juices in a cocktail shaker and shake to combine. Strain into a rocks glass over ice and stir in the dash of tabasco sauce. Garnish with the clementine wheel.
