Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

Contrary to popular belief, Cinco De Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day, which is commemorated in September. The holiday actually celebrates the 1862 Mexican victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla. Some people say Cinco De Mayo is more of a U.S. holiday than a Mexican one. Either way people celebrate the holiday by drinking, excessively.

Now, I'm not much of a drinker but if I had to chose an alcoholic beverage these are my top 10 favorites:

1. Pinot Noir
2. Cabernet Sauvignon
3. Sex & Honey (Honey vodka, citrus and cracked pepper)
4. Blackberry Margarita
5. Mojito
6. Jalapeno Margarita
7. Malibu Coconut Rum and Coke Zero
8. Kettle One Vodka, Orange and Cranberry Juice
9. Pinot Grigio
10. Champagne

What's your poison?

This is not a mexican drink... in fact it's a chilean drink but OMFG it's such an awesome and drink..basically it's only white wine and a melon you can add some sugar if u want.Some people call it "melvin" (melon + vino) you should try it

I'd be happy with some mad dog, it's cheap and it does the trick... hopefully nobody got that joke.

I'm with you on your #7 choice & I always ask for cherries in it. Captain Morgan makes a rum called Captain Morgan's Parrot Bay Rum. It's a coconut rum & tastes just like the Malibu Rum just a tad sweeter. Parrot Bay Rum's always my 1st choice, but if the bar doesn't carry it, I order the Malibu.

Your #4 choice sounds delicious - I'll have to try that one!

Pretty much a straight up whiskey girl, so Jack and Coke would be my favorite.
