Cinco De Mayo as a drinking holiday
Just as with America’s St. Paddy’s Day celebrations, Cinco De Mayo is a holiday with a tradition of drinking. Whether it be of tequila or Mexican beers, nearly every bar will have a themed drink or two for the holiday. It is fun for most, but it can be difficult for anyone recovering from alcohol addiction.
My story isn’t one I’m quite ready to share, but I can be placed in this grouping. An addiction that started when I was 15, it can be hard to abstain with social and cultural pressures at every corner. Many people don’t know this about me, or about the many others in the same boat, so it helps to always plan for alternative beverages just in case.
Cinco De Mayo Steak Fajitas and Cucumber-Radish Salsa
These Cinco De Mayo steak fajitas use roughly the same seasoning from my burrito filling. The salsa is inspired by Mark Bittman’s radish salsa, but simplified to make this an easy 5-minute salsa that anyone could make. Salsa, a word simply meaning sauce, does not have to be the tomato concoction most Americans grew up with, so have fun creating your own creative mixes.
