(SPOT.ph) Now that it's May, it's (almost) officially the season of all things related to tacos, margaritas, micheladas, and more as Cinco de Mayo is coming up on the 5th of the month (yup, tomorrow!). This Mexican holiday traditionally commemorates the country's victory over France during the Battle of Puebla in 1862—and today it's celebrated all over the world, with food fans taking the opportunity to feast on Mexican eats and sips and donning equally festive outfits, sombrero optional. Looking to join in the fun? You'll want to head down to Power Plant Mall tomorrow, May 5, as The Tasting Club—in partnership with the Embassy of Mexico in the Philippines and Power Plant Mall—is holding an al-fresco Cinco de Mayo Fiesta in the area!

Of course, there will be dranks—lots of it. For starters, they'll be having a Mexican cocktail bar hosted by Casablanca Cocktail Club, where you can pick up classics like margaritas, palomas, and micheladas. Filipino craft distillery Destileria Barako will be serving up a special Latin American-style Frida Mexicana cocktail using Kanto Salted Caramel Vodka, and The Tasting Club will be
presenting a Mezcal Negroni using pandan-infused Campari and Mezcal. Expect to find imported Mexican beers, too—as well as a special Dark Chocolate Chili
Beer from local player Jade’s Temple. Completing the festivities is live music by local band Mariachi Emmanuel. Talk about a real fiesta.
