Cool Facts About Cinco de Mayo

First off, Cinco de Mayo isn’t an Independence Day. Mexico’s Independence Day lands all the way over on September 16th. Though it sounds similar to the Fourth of July, Independence Day for the U.S., it’s nowhere near the same celebration. You’re partying to the tune of a battle won against the well-armed French armies under Napoleon. In 1862, the underdogs, the under-manned Mexican army, defended their land from the French. This battle, the Batalla de Puebla, came to symbolize unity, strength, and bravery in the face of oppression.

Cinco de Drinko: Boston Edition!

America being the multi-cultural melting pot of diversity and tolerance that it is, ensures that just about any international holiday is cause for celebration. Want to get wild and hit the bubbly for Bastille Day (July 14th)—done! Or perhaps, you prefer to get explicit and do some “ouzo-bombs” in honor of Greek Independence Day (March 25th). Whatever the occasion, America is the undisputed facilitator of revelry—especially in concerns to our dear neighbors in Mexico!

Though undoubtedly muddled in the memory banks of countless Americans, the actual history of Cinco de Mayo has taken a backseat to the margaritas, tequila, and salsa specials inherently associated with it. Though what better way to commemorate the unlikely Mexican victory over the French (circa 1862) than with some good old fashioned debauchery?
