3 Easy and Tasty Drinks for Your Annual Mexican Celebration
Cinco de Mayo is a celebration every 5th of May, to observe the battle of Puebla, when the Mexican Army claimed victory with French forces in 1862. Although not a federal holiday, it is celebrated every year in the United States and somewhat in Mexico (but not as much as most of us think). It is also a great excuse to either throw a party or invite yourself to one.
Here are a few drink ideas if you feel like celebrating.
