Quench Your Thirst with This Cinco de Mayo Watermelon Margarita

Cinco de Mayo has easily turned into a fan favorite holiday here in America, despite the fact that many people do not know the history of the holiday. If you are one of those people, no need to worry. We are here to help with a quick history lesson! Cinco de Mayo officially commemorates the anniversary of an early victory by Mexican forces over French forces in the Battle of Puebla which took place on May 5, 1862.

This year, Cinco de Mayo falls on Taco Tuesday, and unfortunately most plans have been put on hold thanks to COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus. The key word being Corona, which just so happens to be a Mexican beer (the irony). Although this virus might have put a damper on your original plans, there is still much to celebrate, and we are providing you with an easy watermelon margarita recipe to help you do just that! Don’t forget you can get a fresh watermelon as an add-on to your Farmers Market Subscription Box as long you order Monday or Tuesday of the same week!
