Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a special holiday in Mexico, primarily celebrated in the state of Puebla, with lesser recognition elsewhere in the country. It is a popular celebration in the USA. Hashtags: #CincoDeMayo #5deMayo

The date commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France during the French-Mexican War.

Festivities in the US include drink-based parties, Drinko de Cinco. While it may be culturally spurious, these offers can include mezcal and tequila promotions, so it’s good to be attentive.
