Margarita meets piña colada in this tequila drink

You don't have to be a contrarian to feel like a piña colada instead of a margarita come Cinco de Mayo (week). NYC Mexican haven Rosa Mexicano created the perfect fusion of pineapple, coconut, citrus and tequila to satisfy even the most indecisive of festive Mexican holiday drinkers. The Coco de Mayo — yup, that's "coconut of May" — is a great way to satisfy the urge without breaking out the blender and hurricane glasses.
