So here’s the truth about cinco de mayo – IT AINT REAL! Sorry but not sorry. Yes, something happened in Mexico on May 5th, we kicked the french out of the country (wish we didn’t! haha), that’s all. We don’t celebrate it. Somewhere in there, Corona or some very smart marketing people went like “hey, cinco de mayo sounds cool..let’s make it a holiday!” And the rest is history.
Now that you got a grumpy lecture on Mexican history, I’ll let you know that I do always take advantage of this hallmark holiday, I mean, loads of Mexican food and celebrations just because? Yes please! Never say no to an opportunity for good times with tacos and booze.
Following the tradition, I helped create some fantastic popsicles for work, they were mighty tasty my friends, and you should make them regardless of the date, ’cause delicious ripe fruit is starting to pop at the markets like wet gremlins (memba those?). You can get the full scoop to make these popsicles over at Luvo’s Fresh Blog!
Ps. the spicy margarita is my fave! Obvi.
