Cinco de Mayo is a day observed primarily in the United States and Mexico in Mexican-American communities as a way to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride.Â But this day has become popular with those of other cultures, as well, and is celebrated by people of many different backgrounds.Â My friends and I canâ€™t wait to hit the streets later to join in the fun!Â But I felt just a little guilt about the kids not being able to join in the fun (the events we are attending definitely arenâ€™t for the kids).Â So I decided to cook them a meal so that they can have their own Cinco de Mayo celebration.Â
To let the kids have their fun, too, Iâ€™ve prepared for them a big Crockpot full of creamy, rotel cheese sauce to go with tortilla chips and made them some tacos to go along with baked chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Â Other fun ideas could include games and setting up a pinata for them filled with candies or other treats. Â But what about the drinks?Â Many of us tend to indulge in â€œadult beveragesâ€ for Cinco de Mayo.Â I mean who doesn’t think of enjoying an over-sized glass of margarita or a few shots of Tequila?Â But for those who can’t such as the kids then there are other delicious options. Â Check out this list of non-alcoholic Mexican drink recipes from Recipe.com that are just a good as the â€œadult beverageâ€ versions.
Now everyone can have fun today…enjoy!
