Many Americans view Cinco de Mayo as a day for margaritas and Mexican food. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's independence day. Mexico’s independence is celebrated on September 16. Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla. The very first versions of those May 5 celebrations did not begin in Mexico. They began in the U.S. during the Gold Rush era and the Civil War. The early celebrations were and more about taking a side in a then-ongoing geopolitical conflict and less about food and margaritas.

Since today is Cinco de Mayo  and there are plenty of fiestas in town and most people enjoy a great gathering for any reason.  South Florida residents and visitors can partake in many Cinco de Mayo fiestas in our area.  Celebrate Mexico’s victory over France, sip a margarita and celebrate!  Here are three locaql area places voted as top hot spots in the country by OpenTable.com.

Rocco’s Tacos , voted a top features many distinctive of margaritas, and they offer over 400 kinds of tequila. The downtown West Palm Beach location, 224 Clematis Street, will host a Cinco de Mayo block party Friday, May 5, 2017 with drink specials, street food and live music.

El Camino,  15 NE 2nd Avenue, Delray Beach, is a great place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. This tequila bar and select from the “ultra-premium” tequila menu.  Their tequila menu is six pages long, listing 55 types of blanco tequilas alone, 53 reposados, 48 añejos, and 20 extra añejos. Expect to pay a pretty peso for the rarer sips, up to $75 for a cognac-like sip of extra añejo. This is a place that’s not just for tequila connoisseurs, of course they have margaritas too!

If you’re in the north end of Palm Beach County try Calaveras Cantina, 125 Dockside Circle, Jupiter located in Harbourside Place. The cantina offers more than 100 varieties of tequila and more than a few spicy margarita renditions.

If you’re trying to eat, drink and chill, try the Hilton, West Palm Beach, 600 Okeechobee Blvd for your May 5 fiesta.   Enjoy a special menu of tacos, chips, taquitos, stuffed peppers, churros and more while sitting poolside and sipping a margarita.  

Please drink responsibly and do not drink and drive. Enjoy!
