On the 5th of May, Cinco de Mayo in Spanish, the Mexicans celebrate their victory over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla under the lead of General Ignacio Zaragoza. Although it wasn’t a major strategic win in the war against the French colonisers, Zaragoza’s success represented a great symbolic victory for the Mexican government that helped to re-establish a much needed sense of national unity and patriotism.
Nowadays in Mexico and in some part of the US, to commemorate the battle everyone celebrates with parades, banquets and LOTS of Tequila. Here are 3 recipes to make delicious Margaritas and join the fun!
Frozen Picante Pineapple Margaritas
These frozen margaritas are delicious and very easy to make, all you need is a good blender! Perfect on a warm evening to cool down or on a gloomy day to dream about the sun, beach and the sea. All you need is frozen pineapple chunks, limes, honey, tequila, hot sauce, tajin and salt. The sweetness of the pineapple is offset by the spiciness of the hot sauce and the salt brings all the flavours out – yum!

Jalapeño Avocado Margarita
Inspired by our favourite Mexican sauce ever – guacamole – this margarita is the perfect balance between salty and spicy. Creamy, tangy and kind of healthy too! All you need to make it is tequila, cointreau, lime juice, avocado, jalapeño and parsley.

Raspberry Rose Margaritas
This is a sweet one with no spicy surprises. It is made using Carmela’s Raspberry Rose Sorbet (recipe here) that is delicious on its own but even better when you add a shot of good tequila to it 😉. In addition to the boozy ingredient, you’ll also need fresh lime juice, salt for the rim and some fresh raspberries to garnish.
