Mexican Independence Day is celebrated on September 16. No, it is not on May 5th. Really, Google it if you don’t believe me. I’ll wait.
If Mother Nature is blessing you with an extended summer (read scorching hot and humid) like she is us here in Southern California, you might want something cool and refreshing to drink to celebrate.
We’ve got a few choices for you
- Classic Margarita – tequila, lime and triple sec
- Micheladas – beer, tomato juice and spices
- Berry Hibiscus Cooler – my version of Agua de Jamaica – a non alcoholic herbal tea
And if you want some food choices to enjoy those drinks with:
Enchiladas – labor intensive but delicious
Posole – this is a quick version of the traditional long cooking pork and hominy stew
Slow Cooker Chicken Mole – meat and chocolate, don’t knock it til you try it
Until next time, happy (and responsible) drinking.
