There is still plenty of Cinco De Mayo left. Sean “Diddy” Combs and DeLeón Tequila have cooked up a cocktail fit for any proper #CincoDeLeón celebration.

DeLeón Tequila recruited entrepreneur, actress and Certified Life Coach Nazanin Mandi to celebrate the holiday. It helps that she happens to be proudly part Mexican, too. Combs, DeLeón Tequila and Mandi created a sweet and spicy version of DeLeón’s Tequila’s LOVE Margarita. Considering Combs’ middle name is now officially “Love,” it’s totally on brand.

But first, for those of you into the details, DeLeón Tequila, which is owned by Combs and Diageo, is crafted in the Guanajuato region of Mexico in the town of León. The brand touts using strictly the best hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agave sourced from the region to create its smooth-tasting tequila. By now the high-quality bottle is getting familiar, and it arrives in three varieties: DeLeón Blanco, DeLeón Reposado, and DeLeón Añejo.

Check out the recipes for the ORIGINAL DELEÓN “LOVE” MARGARITA and the SWEET MARMALADE & HONEY MARGARITA below.
