LOS ANGELES
Cinco de Mayo is celebrated only in some
regions of Mexico, primarily in Puebla,
where the battle with France was won.
It’s become a much more important
holiday in the United States. The largest
Cinco de Mayo street fair is Fiesta
Broadway in Los Angeles.
Over 33 million people of Mexican origin
resided in the United States in 2012
according to a Pew Research Center
analysis of Census Bureuas Data. The
largest Chicano communities are found
in Los Angeles, Santa Ana, San Bernadino,
San Diego and the San Francisco Bay area.

TEQUILA FACTS
There’s a popular misconception that
all tequila bottles come with worms in them.
In reality, this only happens with some
mezcals produced around Oaxaca.
The practice of putting larvae from a moth
that calls the agave plant home began as
a marketing scheme in the 1940s.
3 major types:
1. Blanco (white) –
Unaged tequilla; good for margaritas!
2. Reposado (lit. rested) –
Aged in oak barrels for no more than a
year; good for sipping or mixed drinks.
3. Añejo (aged) –
Aged in oak barrels for over a year;
much smoother than other tequilas
and good for sipping.
How to drink it:
with a sangrita (lit. little blood)
which is the traditional accompanying
drink in Mexico.
Here’s a recipe:
1 2 3
1 oz. freshly squeezed orange juice
3/4 to 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 oz. real pomegranate-based grenadine
1/4 tsp. ancho chile powder or
3 dashes hot sauce
1-2 slices jalapeño
