16 Frosty Margaritas To Celebrate Cinco De Mayo

Diply 4 May 2018

The beginning of May — usually, hopefully — marks the beginnings of patio season, where you can sit outside, drink cold cocktails, and pretend that all in the world is perfect.

For many, though, it also means Cinco de Mayo, an important celebration in honor of Mexico claiming victory over the French Empire in 1862.

You're probably going to use Cinco de Mayo as an excuse to have a cocktail, but take the time to learn more about the significance of the day before you start mixing up these fabulous margaritas.
