Cinco de Mayo!

May 5

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Wondering what all the ‘fuss’ is about?

Cinco de Mayo honors the Mexican army victory over a greatly outnumbered French army at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.   But it is not Mexico’s Independence day.  That occurred over 50 years earlier and is celebrated on September 16.  Americans have adopted the holiday and it is now a much greater celebration in the US than in Mexico.

Traditionally Cinco de Mayo is celebrated with a Margarita.  While I am certainly an advocate for a Martini, I think today really does deserve a Margarita… I’ll take a “Cadillac” Margarita please.

However you celebrate, be safe.  Don’t drink and drive.
