Normally during Cinco de Mayo, at the end of the day, you’ll find us heading straight to our favorite Mexican inspired restaurant, and sharing rounds of freshly made margaritas that we’ll be sure to feel the next day at the office. Although we’re glad that we won’t have to feel the after effects quite as strongly, we thought it a shame to completely forget about the rite of passage and bonding experience that is Cinco de Mayo with GDV. With that in mind, we decided to share our newest favorite margarita recipe, the sequester-ita, so you can celebrate, in true GDV fashion, wherever you are quarantining.
