Listen, you don’t have to ditch the bourbon just for Cinco de Mayo. To prove it, Jim Beam partnered up with Executive Chef Jonathan Zaragoza of Masa Azul to create a custom drink to give bourbon cocktails an authentic Mexican flair and it looks pretty incredible. With a little Serrano, tamarind, and apple infused bourbon cider it’s definitely going to be a crowd pleaser.
