Cinco de Mayo is less than a month away, and our party plans are beginning to take shape with Milagro Tequila!

National Ambassador Jaime Salas believes tequila is the best way to celebrate the occasion, which commemorates the historical day when a rag-tag Mexican army battalion unexpectedly defeated the French Army during the Battle of Puebla. “Tequila is the heart and soul of Mexico in liquid form,” Jaime says, “Soldiers drank tequila on the battleground to keep warm at night and give them courage during battles. Tequila is the best ambassador of the Mexican culture. The day should be a celebration of togetherness with delicious Mexican food and tequila.

So, this Cinco de Mayo we are taking Jaime’s advice and making some delicious cocktails and tacos!

Cheers!
