Trying to figure out how to make the celebrations at home? We’re making it easy with these Cinco de Mayo cocktails!
Celebrated annually in America since 1863, the Cinco de Mayo festivities will look a little different this year. Commonly confused with Mexican Independence Day, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s victory during the Battle of Puebla.
In Mexico, the holiday is mainly celebrated in Puebla. Among their annual festive events are military parades and reenactments of the battle. Stateside, Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican culture. And while our celebrations usually consist of parades, Mariachi concerts, and traditional folk dancing, those festive gatherings are ever-so-slightly out of reach.
