CINCO DE MAYO

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is seen as THE day to celebrate Mexican food, culture, and traditions

As time has passed, the historical context of  ‘Cinco de Mayo‘ started to be forgotten.

History of Cinco de Mayo in the US
In 1862, at the time the Battle of Puebla took place, the United States was engaged in its Civil War. The French presence in Mexico was a strategic move:

by gaining a toehold in Mexico, the French could then support the Confederate Army.

The defeat of the French at the Battle of Puebla was not definitive, but it helped to stave off the French while the U.S. Union forces made advances.
Thus Cinco de Mayo can be seen as a turning point in the US Civil War.

Cinco de Mayo was first celebrated in the United States in Southern California in 1863 as a show of solidarity with Mexico against French rule.

WHITE RUSSIAN

The traditional cocktail known as a Black Russian, which first appeared in 1949, becomes a White Russian with the addition of cream.

A White Russian is a cocktail made with vodka, coffee liqueur (e.g., Kahlúa or Tia Maria), and cream served with ice in an Old Fashioned glass.

Often milk will be used as an alternative to cream.

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. After Halloween …. Getting ready for X-mas …. “!!

NOVEMBER BEFORE DECEMBER

HELLO NOVEMBER

Halloween is done. “El Día de los Muertos” is also done.

It’s time to start stocking up for Christmas, at least in the mind of almost every Puerto Rican.

This is a fridge.

You see “coquito” and “pasteles”.

These are staples of any Puerto Rican Christmas.

It’s a type of eggnog drink (with alcohol, of course) and a typical cooking confection made with green bananas and other root plants.

‘Pasteles’ are somewhat like ‘tamales’.

Nothing like the original!

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. Start Making Coquito …. yes”!!

~~September 27, 2016~~ 

WHAT IS COQUITO?

There’s no where in the world where Christmas is celebrated as early and for so long as in Puerto Rico.

For Puerto Ricans, Christmas starts after Thanksgiving Day.

After this holiday, Christmas continues for eight days after Epiphany Day (January 6).

We call these extra eight days ‘las octavitas’.

Therefore, don’t be surprise if ‘coquito’ is already in the minds of many Puerto Ricans.

We have to get the ‘coquito’ started because it needs some time for the drink to ‘age’ a bit.

It’s a sweet, yummy eggnog-like drink with a lot of ‘punch’!

PRECIOUS

How brave a ladybug must be!
Each drop of rain is big as she.
Can you imagine what you’d do,
If raindrops fell as big as you?

KOOL-AID

Kool-Aid is a brand of flavored drink mix owned by Kraft Foods.

Kool-Aid was invented by Edwin Perkins in Hastings, Nebraska. All of his experiments took place in his mother’s kitchen. Its predecessor was a liquid concentrate called Fruit Smack.

To reduce shipping costs, in 1927, Perkins discovered a way to remove the liquid from Fruit Smack, leaving only a powder.

This powder was named Kool-Aid.

Leave it to Puerto Ricans to make it’s own local name.

Puerto Ricans are very resourceful and inventive.

This is the way we pronouced “Kool-Aid”.

“KULEY”

We have that ability to easily switch from one language to the other.

CARE FOR A TROPICAL DRINK?

Just picture this …

sitting outside, by the pool’s bar, with the ocean nearby.

Perfect weather, sunny outside without humidity.

The ocean sounds make you sleepy.

The waves come and go. Here and there.

In the meantime, a handsome Puerto Rican waiter or a beautiful Puerto Rican woman shows up with this drink.

Care for some?

It’s on the house.

Perfection!
