I happened to go to Texas and noticed how big Cinco de Mayo is there. May 5th commemorates the date of the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Today it is more festive where friends get together and drink. In Texas non-Mexicans celebrate the event, so why not add a little zing with Filipino bites and drinks. Publisher Tuttle is sharing a unique drink that mixes Mexican Michelada with Filipino beer. Miguel in Hell is a match made in hell. Pulutan: Filipino Bar Bites, Appetizers and Street Eats has some great finger foods to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
