Hey Hey!

Cinco de Mayo is approaching. The 5th of May is the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, a battle which resulted in the victory of Mexico over France in 1862, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, and is mainly celebrated in Puebla, Mexico. However, for many Americans, Cinco de Mayo is more about celebrating Mexican culture and is an excuse to eat Mexican food and drink Tequila. If you plan to pay tribute to Mexican culture and heritage, here's a margarita recipe for you to try! We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
