What Is Cinco De Mayo?

Cinco de Mayo is a holiday celebrated on May 5th every year to commemorate the Mexican army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It stands as a symbol of the strength and power of Mexican culture.

Although primarily celebrated in Mexico’s Puebla state, Cinco de Mayo is most commonly observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican-American culture and heritage. The holiday is often marked with parades, parties, and traditional Mexican food and drinks such as tacos, guacamole, and margaritas.

Most Popular Cinco De Mayo Cocktails 

One of the main ingredients in Cinco de Mayo cocktails recipes is tequila (Blanco, reposed, and Anejo), which gives a distinct flavor to any drink you add. Some popular cocktails include:

  • Margarita – made with tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur (such as triple sec) and served with a salt rimmed glass.
  • Paloma – made with tequila, grapefruit soda, lime juice, and a salt rimmed glass.
  • Michelada – made with beer, lime juice, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce, served in a salt rimmed glass.
  • Tequila Sunrise – made with tequila, orange juice, and grenadine, garnished with a cherry and orange slice.
  • Piña Colada – made with rum, pineapple juice, coconut cream, and ice, and garnished with a pineapple wedge and cherry.
  • Other ingredients that are commonly used in Cinco de Mayo cocktails include agave nectar, fresh fruits, and various herbs and spices such as jalapeños or cilantro.
