Find out how to make traditional margarita cocktails by PATRÓN for Cinco De Mayo.

Cinco De Mayo will be celebrated differently by people all over the world this year – from home. This annual holiday historically commemorates the victory of Mexico’s army over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla. Today, 5th May more commonly lauds Mexican-American culture. In Mexico and parts of the United States, the occasion is marked with parades, parties, mariachi music, Mexican folk dancing and traditional foods such as tacos and mole poblano.

Viewers can tune into PATRÓN’s Instagram Live on May 5th from 9pm-2am GMT to join 20 bartenders across the country shake up easy-to-make #PatronMargarita recipes using ingredients likely found in the kitchen, as they provide tips and tricks for the perfect at-home Cinco de Mayo experience. PATRÓN tequila will be covering each bartender’s virtual shift and viewers can leave a “virtual tip” and donate to one of PATRÓN tequila’s partner charities.
