Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with These Cool Tequila Partida Cocktails
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
COURTESY TEQUILA PARTIDA
Cinco de Mayo (which translates to the 5th of May) is a celebration of Mexico’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Cinco de Mayo should not be confused with the Mexican Independence Day which commemorates September 16, 1810, when a priest rang the church bells in Dolores as a call to arms for the Mexican War of Independence.
Cinco de Mayo is more popular in the U.S. than in Mexico, and beer sales for the unofficial holiday in the States rival those of the Super Bowl. But who needs beer when you have Mexico’s distilled masterpiece of tequila? And if you’re going to have a tequila cocktail, then Tequila Partida has the tequila and cocktails for you.
Tequila Partida is made the old-fashioned way – 100 percent natural and free of any additives like other mass tequila producers use to add flavor and color. Tequila Partida was founded in 2005 by Enrique Partida, a third-generation agave farmer and a master in his community. Tequila Partida’s award-winning tequilas make the perfect mixer for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations.
