The Ultimate Cinco De Mayo

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with us at home


If you (like so many), have been spending your lockdown longing for the anniversary of an unlikely Mexican battle victory to celebrate, then guess what… you’re in luck.


Cinco de May (5th May) is just that, and it’s also the perfect excuse for drinks and feasting –  Wahaca style!


So we’ve called on the party planning talents of our very own Thomasina Miers to help devise 

5 ingredients for The Ultimate Cinco de May Fiesta.. at home! 

1. Our Grilled Chicken Tacos

There’s very little that can beat our grilled chicken and avo tacos for a feasting centrepiece to share with your lockdown buddies. Cook up the filling, and serve with freshly toasted tortillas and plenty of salsas.

2. The drinks list

Cinco de Mayo is a perfect excuse to let your home-styled lockdown hair down and sip on some of our favourite tipples.

So we’ve put together some of our favourite cocktail recipes to help you get your shake on. 

Take your pick: 

Freshly shaken margaritas

The Wahaca Mule

Cucumber aguas frescas

3. The ultimate Guac and chips

Every good fiesta needs nibbles to kick things off. Check out Tommi’s recipe for our freshly mashed guacamole – a twist on the recipe we’ve been making every morning at our restaurants since day one.

4. Crisp churros with chocolate sauce

Finish your Cinco celebrations in style with a batch of fresh churros, a dusting of cinnamon sugar and plenty of warm chocolate sauce for dipping. Drop them in the middle of the table and let battle commence.

5. Get in the Cinco Mood

We’ve put together a playlist that’ll have you reaching for the next margarita before you can say “Viva Mexico”.  If you’re feeling extra creative, have a crack at making your own papel picado or brightly coloured tissue paper flowers to make sure your fiesta looks the part.
