It's symbolizing the "Victory", a fitting choice of the original and first ever "Cinco de Mayo" Cocktail.

“Cinco de Mayo” was inspired by the namesake battle of the world-renowned celebration - the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France. The drink shows off a bloody war that Tequila is base for their nation,Wenneker Strawberry is the love of Mexican and raspberry gives the freshness for color of the blood with the red bell-pepper to give a bit of spicy when France failed. The lemon juice is to give the right balance of a losing battle and agave syrup is just to compliment the flavor of sweetness when they won. The Swizzle Masters Competition decided to make the drinks live at the Vinexpo in Bordeaux so Dubonnet Rouge is to add extra flavors and more complex for the drink. Then the Mezcal and a pinch black of pepper can be added for the smokiness of the war as well as the people who dead in the battle.
