For better or worse, Cinco de Mayo — the Mexican holiday commemorating its victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 — has in recent years become just another good excuse for American bar-crawlers to knock back some tequila shots, margaritas or South of the Border brew.
So if you are set on celebrating Thursday, why limit yourself to a Mexican drink menu? Here are some of the best cocktails around town featuring liquors and ingredients from Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America.
For New Yorkers who want to venture a little farther north of the city, the Puta Loca is an inventive drink at New Rochelle's NoMa Social, which serves tapas inspired fare.
The cocktail is an attempt at a "Mexican mojito." Fresh basil and tequila are finished off with a dash of triple sec and orange zest to give a sweetness that cuts through the alcohol.
Also a point of pride is NoMa's Red Sangria. Aside from a rich Rueda red wine and generous helpings of fresh fruit, its ingredients are a secret. For $60, you can get five tapas and a pitcher of sangria. One Radisson Plaza, New Rochelle; nomasocial.com/restaurant.html

Dining at restaurants while trying to save money on food may seem a lot like trying to lose weight while eating stacks of decadent cookies on the reg. And there's no wonder why. To turn a profit, restaurants generally charge about four times as much per dish as they paid for its individual ingredients—that's a 400 percent markup. (I know, we died a little, too, when we found out!) And According to the National Restaurant Association, Americans spend more than $782 billion—yes, billion—at restaurants each year, which is a whole lotta cash!
But here's a bit of good news: You don't have to ditch your favorite restaurant fare altogether to stick to your food budget. According to the group of restaurateurs and wait staff we interviewed, there are tons of ways to cut $5, 10, and even $20 from your bill—without saying farewell to your favorite waitress or forgoing the food you love. Read on to discover their must-know money-saving secrets and put all that extra cash towards something amazing—like a vacation or a new pair of running shoes.
