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!!
