Festive Ways to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo


Since today is Cinco de Mayo, here are a few fun and festive ways you can celebrate Mexican culture and heritage! 

Embrace Its History

Learn about the Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, or Cinco de Mayo, the military victory in 1862 over the French forces of Napoleon III, and what parts of Mexico and the US it’s celebrated.

Mexican-Inspired Dinner

Dress up dinner with a menu of Mexican fare like Pollo Rojo (this recipe is easy and yummy!) and a heaping bowl of guacamole. Or order takeout from a local restaurant that serves authentic Mexican food. 

Toast with Tequila

Tequila is considered the official drink of Cinco de Mayo, so say cheers to with a margarita or sip on a Paloma cocktail!
