Cinco de Mayo has become a holiday that is celebrated as much in America as it is in Mexico. With so many people celebrating on May 5th, the ways to celebrate are seemingly endless. Splash Magazines Worldwide has put together a list of cocktails as well as venues that will help you celebrate Cinco de Mayo in 2021.
Together rocker Sammy Hagar and chef Guy Fieri created Santo Spirits and found their virtuoso with Juan Eduardo Nuñez, a third-generation master distiller from the famed distillery El Viejito, founded in 1937, in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Sammy’s history of making world-renowned tequila, Guy’s world-famous taste buds, and Juan Eduardo’s award-winning craftsmanship, bring to life the portfolio of Santo Spirits: The world’s first Mezquila and an old-world style tequila Blanco.
