CoronaEvery year people go nuts on May 5th.  One of my first big memories of Cinco De Mayo  I remember was way back in the early 80’s when I got my first taste for Corona.  Super lawnmower beer.  Light golden color, clear with a thin head.  This is a pale lager that is perfect with that added slice of lime.  Why?  why not.  I remember way back when me and some buddies would go to Vegas and Slots of Fun and drink Corona until they almost ran out.  Then waking up the next day with chapped lips due to all the lime from the night before.  How do you sure the hurt well more Corona.  So on this day I will remember well my Corona days and cheers to my friends and family.

Cinco De Mayo History – (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and regionally in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla). It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate 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. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16. Now you know…
