​Cinco de Mayo marks the day of the Mexican army's victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla. The holiday is celebrated all around the USA but in New York, the parties are more rowdy and wild. Mariachi music, colourful costumes with sombreros, and lots of margaritas create a vibrant atmosphere and a true Mexican spirit. Among the places to visit on this day are the Cinco de Mayo Street Fair near Grand Central Terminal with some of the best Mexican treats and bars like La Esquina in Chinatown and Cascabel Taqueria East in the Upper East Side. Here you can find some drinks that will help you to party all night long.
