Cinco de Mayo is coming!   While this is a traditional Mexican holiday that celebrates Mexico’s unlikely victory over French forces in the Battle of Puebla in 1862, it is often celebrated in the United States by eating Mexican food and drinking Mexican beverages.   I usually celebrate Cinco de Mayo by cooking up delicious Mexican food and enjoying a margarita.
