Gear up for Cinco de Mango
This May 5th is all about Cinco de Mango! As the top mango exporting country to the United States, it only makes sense to celebrate this Mexican holiday with the superfruit. Here are some of our favorite Mexican-inspired dishes that will make your Cinco de Mayo celebration a tasty success.
Time to Fiesta with these Mexican-inspired Sips
Layback and sip on these refreshingly vibrant drinks!
Start your fiesta right with the traditional Mexican drink – the Mangonada. A perfect blend of spicy and sweet, the mangonada is sure to impress. Don’t forget to add Tajin, a zesty chile-lime seasoning, around the rim of your glasses!
Fresh mango with lime juice, agave nectar and poblano pepper team up for a delicious, sweet and spicy margarita. Made with silver tequila and mezcal for a hint of smokiness.
Any Cinco de Mango party wouldn’t be complete without a handmade frozen mango margarita. The sweetness of the mango combines with the sour zing of lime and tequila to create a perfectly balanced summertime cocktail.

Easy Tacos for Cinco de Mayo (or Any Day)
Once you have the salsa and guac ready, you have to spread a little on tacos, right?
Wrapped in warm corn tortillas, these Baja fish tacos are insanely delicious! Serve them garnished with shredded cabbage, cilantro and mango salsa. A squeeze of fresh lime juice makes it fish taco perfection.
Some may call this dish “Grilled Mango Tacos,” but I prefer to call it a “Vegan Mango Lover’s Dream.” Not only are the mangos front and center in this taco, they’re also a key ingredient in the mysterious dream sauce. This dish is perfect for friends with any dietary restrictions – it’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and completely plant-based.
