Cinco De Mayo Favorites

Cinco de Mayo, (not to be confused with Mexican Independence Day on September 16th), is a fun, widely celebrated occasion in the United States. The origins of Cinco de Mayo hark back to May 5, 1862 when the Mexican army was victorious against the French at the Battle of Puebla. Today, Cinco de Mayo is still a much-loved day to celebrate Mexican culture, and restaurants and bars around the United States act accordingly, making margaritas and celebrating the country’s delicious cuisine. In case you’re looking to throw a Cinco de Mayo party from home, these few items will help you get organized, not to mention they are a great investment for anyone who appreciates a good Mexican drink or meal year round!

1. Tabletop Servers like molcajetes, cast iron skillets, tortilla servers and more are great to have on hand for serving up your favorite Mexican dishes while adding authenticity to your presentation. Make some fresh guacamole and serve it in one of our light-weight molcajetes, or whip up some fresh salsa in seconds with a Vitamix or Blendtec blender. If you’re making fajitas on the grill, boost the presentation by serving them up on sizzling cast iron skillets with wood liners, and keep your tortillas nice and hot in one of our colorful servers.

2. Whether you’re making virgin or alcoholic margaritas, having a good Bar Blender will make it quick, simple and mess-free. We have a large diversity of blender models and price points with many under $100!

3. Margarita Glasses are a necessity for not only a Cinco de Mayo party but for anyone who appreciates the celebrated drink year round (that would be us!). We have some great margarita glasses, including festive cactus styles, in sizes from twelve to sixteen ounces. Be sure to also check out our Plastic Drinkware!
