Forget celebrating Christmas, Easter or Thanksgiving! Cinco de Mayo is one of my favourite holidays. I love Mexican food and I love a great margarita, so what's better than an excuse to throw a latin-themed fiesta that promotes enjoying both of those delights. Looking at my calendar today, I realized that this joyous occasion is coming right up (May 5th, Mayo = May, cinco = 5), so what better way to get excited than with a fantastic margarita recipe? This favourite of mine comes from Food 52. It's bold, it's delicious and it's sure to please a crowd. Salud!

Spread salt on a plate. Rub the rims of two rocks glasses with the spent lime. Turn the glasses upside down in the salt. Fill the glasses with ice and pour in the margarita liquid. Add a lime wedge to each. Anyone else have a great margarita recipe? I'd love to try it out – tweet me @ErynJean!
