Mix Up Your Margaritas

 

Once, in a moment of utter confusion, I asked my friends “So, when is the Cinco de Mayo happening?” to which they responded with only laughter until I figured out what I said wrong. “I meant, the party, people. When is the Cinco de Mayo party happening?!” With the “fifth of May” quickly approaching, we’re doing a round up of margaritas for this day of celebration!

 

 

 

Cinco de Mayo, not to be confused with Mexico’s Independence Day, commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. While only a minor holiday in Mexico, Mexican-Americans and Americans widely observe the day by celebrating Mexican heritage and culture through parades, music, food and parties (like the aforementioned)! So what cocktail would be a better choice to cheers with than a margarita featuring Mexico’s very own homegrown spirit, tequila? Take a look at a few of our favorite recipes below.
