Mexican Independence Day

Contrary to popular belief, Mexican Independence Day is not Cinco de
Mayo but actually September 16. The holiday commemorates the Grito
de Dolores, an 1810 event that began Mexico’s war for independence
from Spain. Observe the occasion by mixing up one of these cocktails
that call for the country’s signature spirits tequila and mezcal. Salud!
