Living at The Alexander at Rego Center has every dream luxury available, both in the building and your apartment. Bet your friends were pretty impressed when they visited at your Super Bowl Party. Planning another for Cinco de Mayo?  Let’s put a bit of extra fun into hostessing your party, and serve something just as fabulous as those delicious football cocktails everyone was raving about.

A great Cinco de Mayo celebration is all about Margaritas, right?   What if we tell you won’t even need a glass to down one or two of these yummy drinks?  We’re talking triple-layer Margarita ice-pops!

These ice pops are a tangy-sweet mix of fruit and tequila. Make sure to taste each mix before you freeze it. You might want to adjust the sugar or limejuice quantities, depending on how sweet your fruit is.
