Celebrate Cinco De Mayo with a ManCan Full of Margaritas!

Who needs a mere pitcher of Margaritas when you can have a ManCan full of Margaritas? You heard me right – a ManCan of Margaritas.  ManCans truly are NOT just for beer!

I am trying to decide on a shirt to make for our Cinco de Mayo party where you can bet the ManCans will be flowing with the tequila lime goodness!  But how in the world do I choose just one?

A bit of history before we talk food and drink.  Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Cinco de Mayo is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico.  However, in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage.  Do you celebrate?

My husband and I are celebrating this year by hosting a party in our neighborhood.  Most of our neighbors are transplants to Colorado and we have no family in town, so you’ll find us hanging out together most holidays. ManCans are ALWAYS a staple and filled with something delicious.  Added bonus, we all just have to walk home rather than worry about an Uber or a cab. I urge you to get to know your neighbors – so many amazing friends to be found and memories to be made!  

For Cinco do Mayo we’re having Margaritas with a taco and nacho bar.  Queso, guacamole, and tequila will be ample!  The ManCans will be filled with the most amazing fizzy margarita recipe ever.  You’ll love it, your friends will love it – there won’t be any left!  What’s my secret?  Beer! That’s right, a beer Margarita recipe! THE BEST MARGARITA recipe you’ll find – so easy – throw all the other recipes you have away!  

BEST MARGARITA RECIPE

1 can frozen limeade

1 can of silver tequila – use empty limeade can to measure

1 can lemon lime soda – use empty limeade can to measure

1 can Mexican lager

1 lime - sliced

Margarita salt

Directions: Rub the rim of the glass with a lime slice to make the salt stick to it. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a pitcher and gently stir.  Once combined, add to your ManCan.  Seal and then carefully pour into a glass (taking care not to dislodge any salt). Garnish and serve over ice.

You could change it up a bit with cherry flavored lemon lime soda and garnish with a maraschino cherry and lime slice for a sweeter margarita.

Hopefully we have inspired you to host a neighborhood Cinco de Mayo party.  You have the margarita recipe.  You know what food to serve.  Do you know where to buy your ManCan?  Just click here to order yours today.  We promise you’ll love it!
