The fifth of May may be behind us, but don’t stash away those margarita glasses just yet. A single day was not nearly enough time to sample all of the glorious sips showcased around the web via videos and blogs, so therefore we have extended our celebrations indefinitely.

Whether you find yourself sweet on La Ranita, the cocktail in the video above featuring an intriguing blend of apricot jam and red wine syrup, or on one of the innovative blogger recipes below—there is no debating that all are incredibly deserving of the month-long May limelight.
