Celebrating Cinco de Mayo

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo has become a tradition for my mother and myself and of course you need the appropriate food and drinks that are typical for a Mexican style celebration.

To start everything of a Margarita is a key component of any successful Cinco de Mayo celebration

Another staple is homemade Guacamole

As a starter we went for home made Chili con Carne

The main course was Potato & Chorizo Enchiladas. Also home made of course.

Although Margaritas are great, a nice bottle of wine always goes well with any dinner.
Because of the strong flavors of the food, you need a flavorful, full bodied wine that will complement the different flavors but still stands strong by itself and doesn’t dissipate to the background. So, I choose:
Elderton Command Single Vineyard Shiraz 2004 from Barossa Australia

Everything came out excellent and it was a great celebration of Cinco de Mayo!
