Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! And if you’re like most silly Americans – Happy Cinco de Drinko! Not around here, though! More like “Cinco de Mellow,” as I am super tired from my whirlwind day trip to LA yesterday for LAVBF. Besides, while it does commemorate Mexico’s victory over France in 1862, it’s really just a minor holiday in Mexico, so why we make such a big deal of it in the States is a mystery. Any excuse for tequila, I suppose.
For me, it was an excuse to make my favorite mostly raw, totally vegan “Taco Wraps!” I had to pick up the Pug from my Mom’s house, so we decided to make said favorite tacos & wash them down with “Juicy Mango Margarita Mocktails” a la The Lunchbox Bunch. Good plan! The “margaritas” were super refreshing & I didn’t miss the alcohol at all! Okay, well maybe just a little? Nah, I didn’t!
Ahhhhh, so refreshing! And even better, non-hangover inducing. Perfect with some chips & guacamole, while we prep our tacos!
Cheers everyone & ole!
