When you have a birthday in your close circle daaaaaangerously close to Cinco de Mayo, can you ever justify celebrating by cooking up something other than Mexican-inspired food and drink? It’s been eight years and counting for me (how long Brian and I have been together!!) and we’ve never done things differently. His birthday is just after Cinco de Mayo so his birthday and Cinco de Mayo celebrations have a tendency to run together. Not that he complains about that because Mexican food is his favorite…and it doesn’t hurt that everybody is in a festive fiesta mood.
We’ll be keeping that theme rolling this year by firing up the backyard torches, putting on some tunes, inviting friends over, and enjoying blackened shrimp street tacos with cold, refreshing Corona and Modelo. These two beers always make an appearance at our joint Cinco de Mayo/birthday festivities, and are essential parts of our summer BBQs and get-togethers.
