May 5 is coming! Here in the US, we celebrate Cinco de Mayo as a day of celebration and good Mexican food. In reality, Cinco de Mayo celebrates the victory of Mexico over the French in 1861. It’s still celebrated in Puebla Mexico as a local event, but we have taken it to a whole new level here at Verde Kitchen & Cocktails.
We celebrate Cinco de Mayo with our luscious food menu, craft cocktails, and authentic Mexican street tacos and other foods. We have an amazing selection of craft cocktails including:
- Margarita de Sandia using spicy pepper infused Espolon Blancho tequila, fresh watermelon puree, orange liquor, and fresh lime
- La Paloma using Milagro Blanco tequila, fresh lime, Jarritos grapefruit soda, cayenne pepper dust
- El Magico using 1800 Coconut tequila, orange liquor, Jarritos grapefruit soda, fresh lime, coconut jalapeno rim
- Sangria Roja/Blanca using blended wine, fruit juices, brandy, orange liquor, fresh fruit
