Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Destin

Just six days until Cinco de Mayo is in full swing! How will you celebrate this year? If you need us, we’ll be lounging on the beach with a taco in one hand and a margarita in the other. If you’re looking to get out and celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Destin, then you are in luck as several fun activities are happening for Cinco de Mayo weekend!

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in DestinAs always, HarborWalk Village is hosting its annual Cinco de Mayo Fiesta on Sunday, May 5th from 2-4 PM. Enjoy family-friendly activities, kids’ crafts, face-painting, and much more! At 3 PM, help the crowd break open the Harbor’s largest pinata filled with candy and treats for all ages. This event is free and open to the public in addition to a great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

Also over in Sandestin is the annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration hosted by Cantina Laredo. From 4-10 PM, head down to Grand Park in Grand Boulevard for live music by John Hart Project, dancing, lawn games, and authentic Mexican food and drinks. For some family-friendly (and free!) fun, bring the kids out early for face painting, arts and crafts, and more!

Meanwhile, if you want to make a margarita while lounging in your favorite beach condo in Destin, we’ve got the recipe for you! Our favorite recipe comes from The Defined Dish¬†and uses egg whites to add a nice foam to the top of your margarita. If the foam isn’t your thing, simply omit. Here’s how to make it (serves 4):

  • 1 cup of your favorite tequila
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 1 tsp egg whites
  • A sprinkle of kosher salt

Simply toss your ingredients in the blender, let it work its magic, and enjoy over ice! If you prefer frozen margaritas, just add ice to the blender. The perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day!
