It's Cinco De Mayo...How Are You Celebrating?
Today is Cinco De Mayo. It is traditionally considered a day when The Country of Mexico celebrates the historic victory over France in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In reality though, this is boring sounding. The real reason we celebrate Cinco De Mayo is to give us a"legitimate" excuse to drink. To that I say, cheers!
In honor of Cinco de Mayo, the drink of choice most certainly is Tequila, a Mexican alcohol that when translated to English means "I don't remember doing that." More specifically, a great choice for Cinco De Mayo is the Margarita:
A good margarita should not be fussy. A few simple ingredients mixed together to create a refreshing drink that will, if prepared right, get you fucked up. Personally, I prefer my Margaritas shaken over ice, compared to the frozen, nuclear green concoctions that you find being served at shitty theme restaurants and bars. So in honor of the Maragarita, here is a simple recipe courtesy of GQ:
Happy Drinking and Viva La Mexico
