Several years ago I went out for drinks with a coworker on St. Patrick’s Day. A chalkboard at the national bar/grill chain we chose announced an all-day special on Corona beer.
“Brian,” I said, “why Corona on St. Pat’s Day?” He just shook his head in disbelief.
I immediately made the suggestion that the following Cinco de Mayo, we go out to an Irish pub and drink only Guinness. It just seemed fair.
I've never looked back.
When it comes to drinking, Cinco de County Mayo is more my style, especially on St. Pat's! I don’t know, call me a “purist.” (“Beer snob” is the more common term.)
Enjoy your Cinco de Mayo, however you may celebrate it!
