Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage. Of course, there's far more to Mexican culture than tequila and tacos, but those are two magical things, so we'll be indulging them here—along with a few other items that'll make your fifth of May extra festive.
The Perfect Margarita
This super simple recipe has a secret ingredient. Okay, fine, we'll tell you: It's red wine.
Patron Añejo, $55
If you want something with a bit more character, opt for añejo, an aged tequila which is perfect for sipping.
Salt Shot Glasses
Himalayan Salt Tequila Glasses, Set of 4, $28
These are the far more refined (also, less germy) version of licking salt off your wrist before taking a shot.
Colloquial Melamine Tumbler, $6.50
These cups are perfect for any fiesta, whether you’re hosting an extravagant get-together or a little party for one.
Tropical Melamine Dinner Plate, $10
Because tacos will taste so much more authentic on pretty, vibrant plates.
Mesa Chic Mexican Napkins, Set of 6, $20
You'll look a lot more sophisticated cleaning guac off your shirt if you're using handmade napkins woven with Mexico-sourced fabric.
Rainbow Juice Glass, $8
These cups just beg you to drink fresh Greyhounds on the porch of a hacienda. Or, tap water at your desk.
Zulay Metal Lemon Lime Squeezer, $17
You may already have this kitchen essential, but does yours come in hot pink?
Paule Marrot Garden Carafe, $28
Use it for a refreshing auga fresca on a hot day or to hydrate after one too many Palomas.
LulaFlora Mexican Fiesta Paper Straws, $17
An easy way to make a pretty drink even prettier: a straw with flair.
Seedsheet Taco Kit, $35
Your very own mini farmers market, this grow kit contains all the produce needed for a tasty taco: cilantro, scallions, radish, arugula, and mustard greens.
