How the heck is Cinco De Mayo only a little over a week away?!?! As silly of a day as it is, it’s a favorite of mine. A day us Americans pretend to be Mexicans by drinking margaritas and stuffing our faces with tacos?!?
Best day ever!!!!
Jello shots are always a fabulous way to add a little fun to those Cinco De Mayo parties. Super yummy and yet taste totally delicious for those of us like myself who just can’t take shots of tequila these days! Cheers!!!
