Cinco De Mayo - also known as Battle of Puebla Day - honors the Mexican Army's 1862 victory in the French-Mexican War. And while the History Channel reports it is somewhat of a minor holiday in Mexico, the U.S. has popularized the holiday as a way to celebrate its large Mexican-American population. So today, with the help of Chef Todd Gardiner from Taqueria 27, we are learning a special margarita recipe to help us raise our glasses to our friends with Mexican heritage.

1.5 oz. Lunazul Reposado
.5 oz. Citronage
.5 oz. Grand Marnier
6 oz. Margarita Mix Scoop of Ice Lime Wedge

In a small shaker tin, fill to 1/2 inch below shaker top. Put top and lid on shaker tin, and serve with a salted glass and lime wedge.
