Here at Sweet Southern Savings, we love hot cocoa, Mexico, celebrations. And, Cinco de Mayo is always a day of fun, ethnic food, drinks, and festivities. While I’m not fluent in Spanish or Mexican traditions, my sweetheart is. So, I often look to him to interpret and explain their culture and celebrations to me. Cinco de Mayo literally means May 5th in Spanish. It commemorates the victory of the Mexican army against French forces during the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, and is celebrated more in the U.S. than in Mexico. Visit this Planning a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta? post for more about this day, some great Cinco de Mayo printables, and fiesta ideas. Plus, don’t miss all the great Mexican recipes we’ve compiled for you on the linky.
We also love Mexican Chocolate. Mexican chocolates are known for the different spices like cinnamon and chilies that are added to them to create intense tastes. Those flavors make Brooklyn Bean Roastery’s gourmet Mexican Hot Chocolate, unlike anything you’ve tasted before. It’s Sweet! It’s Spicy! It’s Delicioso!
