5 De Mayo is Here!


5 de Mayo is one of the most misunderstood Mexican holidays. Most Americans think it’s Mexico’s Independence or a day you eat and drink anything and everything that is related to Mexico. It’s been big in the United States since Mexican Americans raised awareness for it in the 1960s, but most Mexican’s including myself don’t really celebrate 5 de Mayo.

If you do decide to celebrate 5 de Mayo you can’t go wrong with cerveza Mexicana with some tacos. But if you want a more traditional drink you can always go with the classic Margarita or better yet go with my two favorite drinks recipes, la Paloma y la Michelada. Todo con medida y feliz 5 de Mayo!



2 ounces blanco or reposado tequila
6 ounces fresh grapefruit soda
1/2 ounce lime juice
Salt for rimming (optional)



Mexican beer
3-4 splashes hot sauce, more or less to taste. I use Tapatío.
2 splashes of Worcestershire sauce
2 splashes of Maggi sauce (or soy sauce)
Juice of one lime
Tajín seasoning (or salt) for the rim

Take about a tablespoon of Tajín (or salt) and sprinkle it on a small plate. Rub a slice of lime around the rim of the glass and then press the rim in the Tajín to salt the rim.
Fill the glass about ¼ to ⅓ with the Clamato juice. Add the hot sauce, the lime juice, the Worcestershire sauce, and the soy sauce. If you used Tajín to salt the rim, pour any excess from the plate into the glass.
Fill the rest with cold beer.
Garnish with a slice of lime and enjoy!
