Cinco de Mayo falls on Taco Tuesday this year, giving us double the reason to celebrate. While shelter in place orders are putting a damper on our fiestas, we can still get our fill of margaritas and Mexican eats by ordering from our many local restaurants. We’ve put together a list of the best Sonoma and Napa spots for takeout tequila for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
Click through the above gallery for photos of some delicious drinks. Note that some restaurants are closed on Tuesday, so you’ll want to order in advance. Is your restaurant doing margaritas to go? Send us an email.
