Not only is it a great excuse for drinking...much more importantly, it celebrates the resounding defeat of the FRENCH!!! Viva Juarez!! Crush the Frogs!!!


"4,000 Mexican soldiers smashed the French and traitor Mexican army of 8,000 at Puebla, Mexico, 100 miles east of Mexico City on the morning of May 5, 1862"

I'll drink to that.

(Although I will continue to appreciate the Marquis de Lafayette.)

Cinco de Mayo isn't Mexican Indepenence Day....but it IS a great excuse to drink in a part of the year with no other holidays to celebrate.
