The Battle of Puebla during the Second French intervention in Mexico (the French-Mexican War 1861-1867), took place on May 5th, 1862, near Puebla City, Mexico. The outnumbered Mexican Army of Benito Juárez defeated the invading French forces of Napoleon III. France controlled Mexico until 1867, until Mexican troops overthrew the government. The Mexican victory at Puebla is celebrated every year on the fifth of May.

Blended Margarita

The two basic categories of tequila are mixtos and 100% agave. Mixtos use no less than 51% agave, with other sugars making up the remainder. Mixtos use both glucose and fructose sugars. Tequila is usually bottled in one of five categories:

  • Blanco¬†(“white”) or¬†plata¬†(“silver”): white spirit, unaged and bottled or stored immediately after distillation, or aged less than two months in stainless steel or neutral oak barrels
  • Joven¬†(“young”) or¬†oro¬†(“gold”): unaged silver tequila that may be flavored with caramel coloring, oak extract, glycerin, or sugar-based syrup. Could also be the result of blending silver tequila with aged and/or extra-aged tequila.
  • Reposado¬†(“rested”): aged a minimum of two months, but less than a year in oak barrels of any size
  • A√Īejo¬†(“aged” or “vintage”): aged a minimum of one year, but less than three years in small oak barrels
  • Extra A√Īejo¬†(“extra aged” or “ultra aged”): aged a minimum of three years in oak barrels, this category was established in March 2006.

Strawberry Margarita!

The traditional margarita uses Tequila, Cointreau and lime juice, though many variations exist and a large number of tequila drinks are made by adding fruit juice. The International Bartenders Association (IBA Official list of Cocktails) standard is 7:4:3, that is, 50% tequila, 29% Cointreau and 21% fresh lime juice

The standard margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice, often served with salt on the rim of the glass. The drink is served shaken with ice (on the rocks), blended with ice (frozen margarita) or without ice (straight up).

Margarita:
1 ounce tequila
Dash of Triple Sec (or Cointreau)
Juice of 1/2 lime or lemon
Pour over crushed ice and stir. Rub the rim of a stem glass with rind of lemon or lime, spin in salt. Take care to moisten only the outer rim and apply the salt on it. The salt should just coat the rim and never mix into the cocktail. Add fresh fruit or juice for more flavor!

TEQUILA!

Tequila Sunrise:
3 oz (6 parts) Orange juice
1-1/2 oz (3 parts) Tequila
1/2 oz (1 part) Grenadine syrup
Pour the tequila and orange juice into glass over ice. Add the grenadine, which will sink to the bottom. Do not stir. Garnish and serve on the rocks in a collins glass.

“Take another shot of courage
Wonder why the right words never come
You just get numb
It’s another tequila sunrise, this old world
Still looks the same”

Searchin’ for my lost shaker of salt.

But I know, it’s my own damn fault.”
