Cinco de Mayo is on a Saturday this year. Since it's not a "school night" there is no excuse not to try one of these delicious sounding drinks. And if you want something to eat with your tequila cocktail, coming up tomorrow will be a post for one of my favorite recipes and it's perfect for Cinco ... stay tuned!
And because these posts should be educational, here's your Beauty history lesson for the day with a quick refresher on why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
"The day is observed in the United States as a day of Mexican heritage and pride and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexico's independence day- the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico - which is actually celebrated September 16."So what I take away from that, is we should also celebrate on September 16 every year! Now that you know why we're celebrating this weekend, let's move on to my lazy Saturday plans since I'm a lazy beauty, am planning to go to the beach all day and want a lazy tequila drink to pack in my Nalgene bottle. I just wish I had some lazy beauties to join me.
Tequila (preferably a nicer kind in proportion to your age and likelihood of a hangover)
Add all ingredients to your Nalgene bottle and go. Or if you're serving it at home, pour into a margarita glass and take credit for a fancy cocktail.
And if you want inspiration to get into some trouble this weekend, just look to Ivadell (my mom):
