The Battle of Puebla where the Mexican Army trounced the French May 5, 1862
How extra fun that it is also Thirsty Thursday!
Maybe you are expecting a margarita recipe? Well, I thought it would be fun to shake things up a bit and share this recipe with you. I found it and other Ole! worthy beverages on this link: http://cocktails.about.com/od/partiesholidays/tp/cinco_de_mayo.htm
