Cinco De May-Mo!
I remember celebrating my very first Cinco De Mayo with my father. He took me to a festival happening in Cincinnati Ohio. I was blown away with all the culture, food and family vibes. If you don’t know my father’s mother was part Mexican, no wonder I am so caliente! :)
Since we are quarantined and I can’t celebrate with my friends and family, I decided to have my very own little “Cinco De May-Mo!” Here is what I did:
Picked up these super cute decorations, dishes and cups from Target you can find them here
Made a super easy taco dip
-Mix cream cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning (about 3-4 tablespoons) in bowl. I got fancy and mixed it with my electronic hand mixer my mother gave to me
-Spread mix in a square or round pan - I used a 12 X 9 inch pan
-Top with cheese, lettuce, tomato, olives and any other toppings you wish
-Serve with Chips! (Make sure you refrigerate until ready to serve.)
Enjoyed a delicious tequila cocktail from Hidden Spirits Cocktails
(PS this is a black woman owned liquor brand and this drink was AMAZING).
Hidden Spirits Cocktails is a black woman owned liquor brand and I got to try a bottle of the Strawberry. It’s already mixed with tequila and ready to serve. I loved it! The cocktail was not overpowering, the tequila is subtle and smooth. Unlike most pre-made mixed drinks it tasted as if it was just made in front of me at the bar. Please go check out their brand here
Hope you enjoyed my fiesta!!

Aaaah!! Morgan♡ Thank you so much for creating the space where all of us can dare to dream!! In this Covid 19 environment we cannot get the typical experience that we're used to, but we can still invent new ways to enjoy and be fulfilled. Awesome way for us to keep in the spirit of celebration in a different way. This post took me there!
