Cinco de Mayo

Pop quiz time:

Cinco de mayo celebrates:
a) the annexation of Arizona
b) the slipping of the border from north of Tejas to south of Texas
c) beer companies

Need recipes, fast?

Tired of the same old hum drum shots of tequila? Go for a paloma, here.
Buy authentic fried chips at a small grocers, and dip them into plenty of Mexican crema.
After a few palomas, ponder the advantages and responsibilities of being born on this side of the border.
