Cinco de Mayo – the 5th of May, the day the Mexicans defeated the French in the 1860’s in the city of Puebla de Zaragoza. A day not really celebrated in México but one that has turned into a fiesta in the nation… and most importantly a day that provides everyone an excuse to throw on a sombrero, devour tortilla chips, and down some refreshing Margaritas.
When we think of México and alcohol, most likely two images form in our heads: 1) A corona bottle with a lime wedged into it chilling on the beach, and 2) Margaritas. While this is a generalization of a large gastronomic culture of a country, the Margarita became popular for a reason.
As of today, the United States has surpassed even México as the largest marketplace for Tequila – the base and structure needed for any killer Marg. On average, over 175,000 Margaritas are consumed by the American people per hour. Who’s thirsty now?
On Tuesday, May 5th, the masses will down tacos and guacamole and even make some feeble attempts to use their rusty high school Spanish while having a few copas (Spanish for cocktails) that are most certainly Margaritas. Who doesn’t love a good holiday dedicated to Mexican food and tequila bearing beverages? We certainly don’t mind participating with Patron and a fake bigote (Spanish for mustache).
While the day’s festivities may entice you to hit up a chain Tex-Mex restaurant or even your favorite local bar that serves a mean Margarita, we are encouraging you to play host and create your very own Cinco de Mayo fiesta that is sure to be one for the books. The only ingredients you need to celebrate Tuesday the 5th are your friends, some Marc Anthony and/or Pitbull, and plenty of Margaritas.
