Cinco de Mayo is coming up, it’s a traditional holiday celebrated by Mexico. This holiday is primarily celebrated in Puebla, where this holiday is called ‘El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla’ Translation: The Day of the Battle of Puebla. It celebrates there freedom from the first years of the American Civil War and the victory over French Forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
This year I decided to share 3 Drink recipes I found that are my favorites:
1. Margarita – 7 parts tequila, 4 parts triple sec and 3 parts lime juice, served on the rocks; a salted rim is optional. No strawberries, no mangoes, no blenders, and most importantly, no Cuervo Gold. Use a real tequila, one that’s marked 100% de agave, but don’t splurge; you don’t need $50-a-fifth sipping tequila for this drink. You can find the recipe Here
2. Paloma – A shot of tequila and three shots of Squirt, Jarritos Toronja or another grapefruit soda, served on the rocks. Try a good tequila here too, I promise you won’t regret it.
3. El Diablo – 1 1/2 ounce(s) Tequila (Again try a good tequila)
1 ounce of cranberry juice, Fresh squeezed lime juice, 1/2 ounce of simple syrup and a splash of ginger ale. Add a wedged lime if you like.
Hope you have a great Cinco de Mayo!
Enjoy and be responsible.
