Cinco de Mayo Bebidas

Today is Cinco de Mayo, and while some in Mexico may be celebrating their army's triumph over French forces in 1862, many people here in the U.S. will be marking the day with a pitcher of margaritas. But if you're looking for something a little different to imbibe today, we suggest the equally light and refreshing Paloma, combining Mexican grapefruit soda and tequila (you can also try it with fresh grapefruit juice and soda water). Or, if you're more of a beer drinker, give the spicy Michelada a try—a perfect match for Mexican food!
