Cinco de Mayo is more than an excuse to head to your favorite Mexican restaurant for a savory Marg. Ready for a mini history lesson pre-margaritas?! On May 5, 1862 Mexican troops beat the French during the famous Battle of Puebla defending their independence. This marks a historic day of Mexican unity and patriotism – which led to an epic party that is celebrated with tequila and more tequila each year. Trying to determine where you will celebrate? Allow us to point out a few must-visit locations.
