I love my Cinco de Mayo Margarita recipe!
Cinco de Mayo is quickly approaching just like everything else. Time seems to be moving faster and faster. Hold on – it’s like a roller coaster ride. You can either enjoy it or get sick! Hey, I haven’t been crazy about fast rides since my teenage years but I’m gonna enjoy the ride since I can’t slow it down anyway!
I love a good excuse to throw a party and Cinco de Mayo (which is May 5th) is all about celebrating Mexican food and culture. Let’s start with Margaritas, which I believe are some of the best cocktails in the world, as there are so many different versions!
Ali in the Valley’s Margarita Recipe is one of my best! I got this recipe from one of my mentors in the music business and have claimed it as my own (with a few changes of course). Since I’ve been on the grind this year and not drinking hard liquor, I haven’t really indulged much. But heck, I gotta celebrate Cinco de Mayo the right way with my amazing margaritas!
Let’s kick it off with Ali in the Valley’s Margarita!

Information on Cinco de Mayo:
Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla,where the holiday is called El Dia de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla). The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico—which is actually celebrated on September 16.
