Margarita Masterclass at Mexico

In Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is a national holiday taken on May 5th to mark the Mexican army's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla, on 5th May 1862. In America, Mexican-American links are celebrated on May 5th with parties, parades and Mexican food. In Takapuna, Mexico (the restaurant) celebrated the day with a margarita masterclass. Alex Tilsley and Jana Gallagher, both in suitable Mexican-style face paint, led a full house of eager participants, in the restaurant's upstairs room. An evening of fun included Mexican food as well as the making (and consuming) of participants' own fresh margarita creations.
