THE ONLY THING BETTER THAN ONE MARGARITA IS TWO MARGARITAS.
As we're getting ready to share Cinco de Mayo ideas & recipes, I can't help but scratch my head and think, "But, why?"
Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate the true David & Goliath moment between Mexico and France. An unlikely victory for the Mexican army as they defeated the occupying French soldiers under Napoleon III on May 5, 1862. This was a victory in the battle of Puebla, not to be confused with Mexico's independence day in September.
How this turned into a holiday celebrated more in the United States than any other country, we may never know. But I can't argue that it's not a fun one to celebrate.
So whether you are hosting, attending, or simply grabbing a marg on the rocks at your local Mexican spot, we've got everything you need to turn your party into a fiesta.
