Homemade Margaritas & Take Out - We're Still Celebrating Cinco De Mayo in Destin

Happy Cinco De Mayo! We're not letting social distancing stop our Cinco de Mayo celebration in Destin. The “new norm” simply means we are doing things a little differently this year. Since we have been staying at home, we're celebrating with homemade margaritas and "take out" from our favorite restaurants. 

First and foremost, a margarita is the perfect way to start the celebration. As part of our Dailey Happy Hour, we’ve got a great suggestion for creating a deliciously fresh margarita with ingredients you may have at home. CLICK HERE to view our recipe for a homemade margarita that is light and refreshing—perfect for a sunset toast for Cinco De Mayo at the beach.

We're also celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a delicious meal and margarita “To Go” from one of the area’s Mexican restaurants. Here's our top choices (the hardest part is deciding which one!):

On 30A in Blue Mountain Beach near Sanctuary at Redfish, Red Fish Taco opened for Cinco De Mayo! They are serving complimentary frozen Stinky Ritas (small) or $2 beer for the first 200 customers while they last. Be sure to check out their “Taco Tuesday” menu for some of the best fish tacos in town! 

Also, on 30A Red Fish Taco’s sister restaurant, Stinky’s Fish Camp in Dune Allen across from Sounds of Summer Beach Vacation Rental Home, is pouring the original “Stinky Rita” along with offering a diverse menu of delicious New Orleans-inspired fare. We recommend ordering online and pick up your Cinco De Mayo feast and head to the beach.

In Miramar Beach, our friends at the Surf Hut are celebrating Cinco De Mayo with their shoreline tacos served with jasmine rice. The selection includes pulled pork, blackened shrimp or grilled fish tacos (or try all three with the Trio). We love their Tropical Margarita made with Patron Silver and pineapple juice and is a great addition to any “take out order.” Open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

In Crystal Beach, Camille’s Café is celebrating Cinco de Mayo with fresh squeezed margaritas “To Go”. (open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) As Camille's re-opens, so does the Beachside Inn! The Beachside Inn has fully-reopened and we're welcoming families back for May and summer beach getaways. If you're ready to get back to the beach, book a stay via phone by calling 1-800-225-7652.
