September 16, 2010 marks the year of Bicentennial Celebrations in Mexico, commemorating 200 years of independence from Spanish rule. In Mexico, it is customary to gather on 16 de Septiembre in ceremony in a plaza (city square) or a home for a fiesta complete with food, live music and, of course, plenty to drink. The party reaches a high point when the crowd joins together proudly shouting out the names of heroes of Mexican Independence, always ending with the exciting “VIVA MEXICO!”, and afterwards the sky is illuminated with fireworks.

In the USA, we love a good Mexican Holiday; after all, look how popular Cinco de Mayo has become! To help with September 16 party planning this year, Dos Lunas Tequila has created an award winning Margarita, with their award winning tequilas, in honor of this year’s Bicentennial Celebration in Mexico. “We love Mexico’s rich culture, traditions and celebrations, without them tequila would not exist,” says Dos Lunas Vice-President, Adam Wallach, “Raise a glass and shout, VIVA MEXICO!”
