Let’s Fiesta! Cinco de Mayo Party Guide
Let’s fiesta! Cinco de Mayo is Sunday, and we’re super excited about the Mexican holiday that screams taco-and-tequila parties galore. Let us help you plan the perfect celebraciones with great ideas and essentials, like our freshly made chunky guacamole, tasty tortillas from La Tortilla Factory, grill-ready al pastor and baja pollo taco mixes, an amazing selection of silver and anejo tequila (even those hard-to-find top shelf varieties), plus some fun and festive décor. Ready to get loco?
GUAC AROUND THE CLOCK!
Delight all the avocado aficionados on your guest list with our zesty guacamole, made fresh in-house daily. We start with buttery-ripe avocadoes and add onion, tomato, cilantro, lime juice and a caliente kick of jalapeno. You’ll want lots of Bristol Farms white corn tortilla chips on hand, of course, but our guac also rocks on nachos, tacos, burgers and other dishes.
MORE TORTILLAS, POR FAVOR
Everything tastes better when wrapped in a warm tortilla! And La Tortilla Factory gives us lots to love with their huge selection of deliciously authentic tortillas. In addition to traditional flour and Gluten-free corn tortillas, they also offer a Hatch chile 50% wheat and 50% corn variety as well as organic flour and corn, mini street size tortillas, and so much more! And they’re made in Southern California…so obviously we are hooked!
THINK OUTSIDE THE TACO TRUCK
Sure, taco trucks are great on Tuesdays. But it’s Cinco de Mayo! Make your tacos special with convenient, ready-to-cook mixes from our butchery. Choose from pre-seasoned, prechopped pork , beef and chicken blended with just the right amount of onions and garlic. Yum! Score even more party-hosting points with a taco bar of toppings, like fresh tomato and mango salsas from our deli, Cotija and Jack cheeses from our cheese department, and cabbage, tomatoes and avocados from our produce section.
GET IN THE SPIRIT!
You’ll be in a celebratory mood just browsing our intoxicatingly awesome array of Mexican tequilas, including premium labels such as Casamigos, Camarena, and Don Julio 1800. Made from 100% Blue Weber agave, these aged tequilas are so clean and silky smooth, you may want to enjoy them straight up or on the rocks for slow sipping and savoring.
Feeling a little adventurous? Then give Tequila your best shot! Here’s how: Wet the rim of a shot glass and invert over and rub liberally over some coarse salt. Pour your favorite tequila into the glass and have a lime wedge ready to bite on after you’ve downed the shot!
