Cinco de Mayo is, to many American, a day to celebrate Mexico through the ample amounts of the country’s spirits. A couple of misconceptions about the holiday abound, however. First, it’s not Mexico’s Independence Day; that’s on September 16. Rather, Cinco de Mayo, celebrates the anniversary of the country’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla.
Second, the day isn’t even an official Mexican holiday, and although celebrations take place, mostly in the state of Puebla, most Mexicans don’t really even celebrate the holiday and tend to find it odd that Americans use it as an excuse to party. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t celebrate the holiday. We simply urge you to do so with quality drinks rather than an enormous quantity of them.We've gone ahead and created this impressive tequila cocktail called the "Mexican Martini" to enjoy your celebrations.
