Join me (once again) in raising a shot glass full of Tequila and a fine, German Crafted, Mexican Cerveza celebrating just one of a long list of French military defeats.
Since turning French military catastrophe into holidays would leave us with little time to actually work, we in the U.S. and Mexico have decided that the 5th of May will be it.
Viva Cinco de Mayo!
It was a turning point for the Mexican army (under Seguin) when they defeated the French at Puebla… Blah, blah, blah, Whatever…
While I certainly give credit to the Mexican army for defeating the French… so has everyone else. In other words it’s a huge, not so exclusive, club with an ever-expanding membership… kind of like Costco. As far as I’m concerned, I’ll toast Mexico as well as all those throughout history who have kept the French contained and focused on making cheese, creating recipes for animals humans would otherwise not eat and various delightfully fluffy egg dishes.
