One of everyone’s favorite holidays is upon us! Cinco de Mayo is a day that honors the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the Second French Empire in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In 1863, California became one of the first southern border states to host festivities in commemoration. Since then, the holiday has become a day for people everywhere to celebrate Mexican culture, especially by indulging in its drinks and food.
