5 Drink Ideas for Cinco de Mayo (that aren’t Margaritas)

Last year I was really left thinking: "What happened people? When did Cinco de Mayo get so boring?" Now-a-days the fifth of May means taking my pick from a slew of unimaginative restaurants, whose idea of “holiday spirit” is whipping up some ground beef tacos and serving them alongside week frozen margaritas. But no more! I say it's time to try something new, something refreshing and something that is not a margarita...
