Mexico’s national holiday not only honours the military victory over the French forces of Napoleon at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, but it also honours everything that is great about Mexico; that includes the marvelous Margarita (though its exact origin is somewhat contested).
Premium mixer brand Two Keys has revealed its own answer to the Margarita and has shared its recipe with us for what they feel to be the best way to toast the Cinco de Mayo.
Two keys are donating 5% of all UK sales to Tusk, a British non-profit organisation which seeks to protect African wildlife and endanger species from extinction.
