Happy Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo (the 5th of May) is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico, not notably in Puebla.  In the U.S., the date is observed as a celebration of Mexican heritage while in Puebla it commemorates the Mexican army's victory over French forces.

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a fabulous Tequila Sunrise!


  • 1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger tequila
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ice cubes
  • 1/2 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger grenadine syrup
  • 1 slice orange, for garnish
  • 1 maraschino cherry for garnish


  1. Stir or shake together tequila and orange juice. Fill a chilled 12 ounce glass with ice cubes; pour in orange juice mixture. Slowly pour in the grenadine, and allow it to settle to the bottom of the glass (be patient). Garnish with a slice of orange, and a maraschino cherry.
