The United States often adopts celebrations from neighboring countries, weaving their customs into our own festive style.  Cinco de Mayo, historically a celebration of Mexico’s independence from France, is one such fête. According to recent research information shared by Jeff Grindrod and Mike Ginley at the 2009 Cheers Conference focusing on spirits trends, the Margarita continues to be the #1 consumer cocktail choice taking a 32% share in the spirits drink category. A Margarita is the perfect way to toast the spirit of Mexico and Cinco de Mayo. 

Toast with friends and relax this Cinco de Mayo by planning ahead. Tequila Cazadores makes party planning a breeze with the Tequila Cazadores 5 gallon Margarita recipe. Rather than host from behind the bar making individual margaritas, mix this Tequila Cazadores classic up ahead of time and let your guests serve themselves.
