Cinco de Mayo is one of those international holidays that we happily participate in because it offers the chance to honor another country’s culture. Not to mention the excuse for a rockin’ good gathering sharing another nation’s libations!
And at Spec’s, we’ve got everything to make your South of the Border soiree guests say “Aye Aye!.” Tasty tequilas for the perfect margaritas, hearty Mexican beers, authentic Mexican chips to quesadillas and Tex-Mex dip from our deli!
Ready to “Mex” things up? Say “si” to Spec’s! Below are a few of our favorite tequila translations.
