Cinco de Mayo

Today is Cinco de Mayo, where everyone in the US celebrates the day by pretending to be Mexican and drinking. It is a bit like St. Patrick’s day, but with Sombreros instead of Shamrocks and Tequila instead of Guinness.

Often mistaken, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day (Sept 16), but it is a celebration of the unlikely victory of the Mexican army against the French at Puebla on May 5 1862.

Why not celebrate with some enchiladas, tacos, margaritas and Dos Equis.
