Cinco de Mayo is handily one of the most Americanized, co-opted international holidays.

Ask any goon with a guacamole stained button down, and he would be hard-pressed to give an actual origin of the holiday. As misunderstood as the holiday may be, it's not going to stop your local Chili's from printing money for the better part of the next 24 hours.

History's garbled translations aside, we do like drinking.

Today is one of those socially acceptable days to get away with getting lit while the sun is still up, but you should spare yourself the hangover and step up your bar game. Enjoy these cocktail pairings with these video games and skip the inevitable meat market your local Mexican chain restaurant is guaranteed to become.
