Feliz Cinco De Mayo! Salud!
Celebrate Cinco De Mayo with these Patch Picks.
Cinco de Mayo is one of those "holidays" that everyone can embrace for fun. Ironically, it is not celebrated as widely in Mexico, but American alochol marketers have embraced the day. In that spirit, Patch Picks has five Mexican foods and drinks you can try to commemorate Cinco de Mayo.
1. Tequila anejo
Añejo tequila is an aged tequila that is made by different manufacturers. It is best consumed as a single shot followed by salt and lime. You can find this tequila at most Huntley liquor stores.
2. Mole Sauce
The ingredients in this dish includes nuts so if you’re allergic, avoid it. Otherwise, it’s a scrumptious, spicy, chocolate sauce that melts in your mouth. Buena Vista Restaurant in Algonquin has mole enchiladas. Try it and you’ll love it.
3. Tequila rose
A warning: this tastes like a strawberry shake, but it’s alcohol. Just beware. This liquor is hard to find, but Huntley Food & Liquors carries it. The cost is $22, but it’s worth the price.
You know, those long, deep fried things with sugar and cinnamon. We had you at deep fried, right? Believe it or not, the best churros can be found at….Costco in Lake in the Hills. They are fresh and a bargain.
5. Tequila silver
Ah, the ultimate in tequila. Binny’s Beverage Depot, with a location in Algonquin, has a list of 227 tequilas on its website. You’ll be able to find a variety of silver tequila there.
