Inspired by one of Selena’s most memorable songs, Vianney Rodriguez whipped up a fresh cantaloupe margarita, that will be served at her Raised on Selena event, which will celebrate the late Tejano’s life, legacy, and impact on Latinos. The 512 is a loving nod from Selena to Corpus Christi, Texas’s former area code.
