A day commemorated by lots of Mexican food and drink - judging from food and drinks blogs in my newsfeed.
However in my home country May 5th is also a pretty special day.
69 years ago today Denmarks saw it's first day in liberty after the German occupation from 1940-45.
May 4th the German Army surrendered to General Montgomery.
A song written not long after May 5th 1945 describes that first morning in freedom, as a morning like many others and not like any morning in a 1.000 years.
The German occupation is the only time Denmark has ever been occupied by a foreign power.
So in honor of both these occasions I have mixed a cocktail taking it's name from the Roman Goddess in charge of red skies in the morning.
- 5 cl Mezcal - I used Ilegal Joven
- 1,5 cl pineapple syrup (recipe here)
- 3 sage leaves
- 10 blueberries
- Bitter Lemon
