Some believe the fifth of May marks the celebration of Mexico’s independence; however, that’s not true. Cinco celebrates the Battle of Puebla, which occurred May 5, 1862.
Net/net, the Mexican army won an unlikely victory and the day has long been a celebration of the underdog.
At The Food Channel, we salute underdogs everywhere and raise a toast with some of our favorite margaritas.
- The Golden Peach Margarita (recipe here)
- The Classic Margarita (recipe here)
- Margaritas for a Crowd, because if they’re good, you’ll end up with one (recipe here)
- And for something a little different, Margarita Mousse, the perfect end to a perfect celebration (recipe here).
Celebrate your inner underdog this Cinco de Mayo – and remember, always enjoy and partake responsibly.
