Cheers to Cinco de Mayo! Raise a shot of good tequila with me and celebrate. Okay, my tummy might have cringed a little thinking about tequila shots. 🙂
In all seriousness, being from San Diego, I’m here to tell you, we celebrate Cinco De Mayo. That’s like New Orleans and Mardi Gras. We DO Cinco De Mayo friends.
Cinco De Mayo San Diego
San Diego has some lovely cultural festivals full of amazing dancing and music. There are also close to ten thousand incredibly delicious Mexican restaurants in San Diego.
Mexican Food is a staple here in San Diego and a big part of any Cinco de Mayo celebration. Here are a few of our favorites.
- AL PASTOR MARINADED CHICKEN KABOBS
- CARNE ASADA POTATO SKINS
- CHIPOTLE SHRIMP SALAD WITH AVOCADO CREAM DRESSING
All this food talk also gets me thinking about drinks. Classic margaritas in particular. There are many ways to make a classic margarita. Do not get me wrong, freshly squeezed lime juice, triple sec, simple syrup, agave tequila with a salt rimmed glass is always a good idea.
Other Margarita Favorites
The fact is, that sometimes you just want to throw a few ingredients into a cocktail shaker, and pour it over a glass with ice and sip away. Okay, I do enjoy a little fresh lime juice and salt along the rim too. 🙂
One Spring Break in college, my best friend and I came home to San Diego from college. Our plan was to drive across the boarder for a few days in the sun down in Mexico. Unfortunately, after some unwanted car trouble, we ended up not making it across the boarder and staying with our parents back in San Diego.
Trying to cheer us up, my friends Mom brought us to her house where she had decorated for a fiesta. She made tacos and these 3 ingredient margaritas and we had so much fun. Its one of those HAPPY memories that I will remember forever.
Now, anytime we have a few friends stop by, we have these ingredients on hand to make a pitcher. It is an easy margarita recipes for a party.
- Mexican beer
- lime (garnish)
This perfect margarita is a game changer. Add ice and a lime wheel with lime wedges and boom, you are off to a fabulous pitcher of margs.
Fair warning, a pitcher of these go down fast, so make sure you have enough limeade on hand to make more.
