Although we said that Cinco de Mayo is a good excuse for us to show off all our Mexican cooking know-how, let's be real: this "holiday" is all about the drinks. And even though it falls on a Sunday this year, there's no way we're passing up a margarita. Or a Paloma. Or a Michelada. (How else to wash down all those tacos?) For the festive teetotalers, though, there's a rainbow of aguas frescas (a.k.a. juices) to sip on while you're nomming guac or a quesadilla. We just have one rule for Cinco de Mayo imbibing: If it comes out of a slushy machine, don't drink it. Plain and simple.
