So, what's left for the powerhouse chica of Mexican, Iranian and Native American descent do at the end of a long day? Celebrate, of course. And, boy, does she celebrate in style.

For Cinco de Mayo, the certified life coach has teamed up with Sean "Diddy" Combs and DeLeón Tequila to celebrate this iconic Mexican American holiday with three margarita recipes as unique as Mandi herself.

Mandi says, "I am excited to work with Sean 'Diddy' Combs and DeLeón Tequila to celebrate a holiday that has been so integral to my culture. Cinco de Mayo is about celebration, sharing moments with loved ones and toasting to life. This year, I'm raising a glass of DeLeón Tequila to honor my history and culture!"

Mandi notes how meaningful her collaboration with the famed tequila brand is so meaningful to her.

"DeLeón Tequila represents celebrating life's journey—the wins and obstacles. For me, that journey includes honoring my culture, celebrating life with loved ones, and creating a legacy that hopefully inspires generations to come," she affirms. "I look forward to seeing the remixed DeLeón Tequila margaritas everyone makes for #CincoDeLeon—I prefer mine spicy with an orange slice—the possibilities are endless!"
