Happy Cinco de Mayo from Liquor Snob

Happy Cinco do MayoAs you know, we like any day where we don't have to make excuses to drink...err...find reasons to imbibe a cocktail or three. That's why we like big celebratory holidays where everyone else is sauced up too, and no one will notice that we're reeking of booze and pulling to the left when we try to walk.

To that end, welcome to Cinco de Mayo! Apparently it's a celebration of Mexico's victory in some battle against the French (is that something to brag about? Our interns could beat the French), but has turned into a reason to drink mas cerveza now that our fellow whiteys have discovered it.

Or, if you're not in a Corona kind of mood, maybe today is a day for tequila or some other agave-based liquor. See below for five great spots for tequila-based recipes so you can fritter away your day sipping margaritas. That's what we're going to do. Of course, that's what we do every Friday. And Thursday. And most Wednesdays...

If you're curious about what to buy, we've done a few tequila reviews to get you started, and don't forget about Mezcal, our other good friend from South of the Border. Our only word of advice - stay away from the worm. It'll seem like a great idea to eat it after a couple drinks, but any time we've tangled with it has only ended in heartache. Trust us...you'd be better off putting a scorpion in your mouth.
