Cinco de Mayo – Viva BrewTender®

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a holiday held on May 5 that commemorates the Mexican army‘s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. It is celebrated primarily in the state of Puebla and in the United States. While Cinco deMayo sees limited significance in Mexico itself, the date is observed nationwide mostly in the United Statesas a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. (Source wikipedia).

Now that you’ve had your history lesson for the day – Let me tell you what Cinco de Mayo means to me…  It means it’s time to enjoy some great Mexican, Cervezas (that’s Spanish for Beer; note to the less Spanglishly edified than myself!). 

Or, if you prefer a shortcut to the un-avoidable outcome of putting a smile on your face…  Have yourself a few shots of tequila (“it’s like beer!”)… Patron Silver being a favorite of yours truly… (“it’s like beer”) Source – The Three Amigo’s!

Oh, and when you’re preparing to serve your favorite Mexican libation(s) to celebrate Cinco de Mayo… Make certain you bring out your ole “Brew-mego” the BrewTender®.  It’s the perfect cooling dispenser to serve-up some ice-cold to the last glass cadalac Margarita’s… Or, of course let us not forget that it’s also the perfect dispenser to serve your choice of south of the border cerveza(s) – Carona, Pacifico, Dos Equis, Modello, Tecate, SOL (just to name a few of my favorite things!).

This Amego’s opinion… Viva Mexico! – Viva Cinco de Mayo! - Viva BrewTender®!
