5 fun Cinco de Mayo plans you can do from home

We have a twist on a traditional margarita, a festive decorative idea and much more

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over the French Empire. Usually, you eat delicious food, listen to traditional music and have a great time with friends and family. However, with social isolation, we may need to rethink our approach. Here are 5 great ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo while keeping the safety of others in mind.

Sure, we all have our own classic margarita recipe, but why not mix it up this year with a new take on the typical drink. For instance, why not try a “Veracruzana Pineapple Margarita?” Or a spicy “Caliente Kiss Margarita?” To help you get started, here is a simple recipe you can try:

Caliente Kiss Margarita

Grab your shaker and combine:

  • 2 ounces of silver tequila
  • 2 ounces of tomato juice
  • 1 squeeze of chili sauce
  • 1 dash of black pepper
  • 1 dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 dash of celery salt
  • 1 dash of paprika
  • 1 dash of cumin
  • A squeeze of lemon

¡Decorar para una fiesta!

We may all be stuck indoors, but that doesn’t mean we have to keep things humdrum. Decorate your household like a fiesta! Put up streamers, plant paper flowers, don’t forget the garland and dance the night away.
