Sometimes life happens when you're making plans to enjoy it. So Avocados From Mexico came up with some ways to make the most of Cinco de Mayo, no matter where Cinco takes you.

How to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in a Rogue Hot Air Balloon

Rays of early-morning sun stream across the horizon as you step into the basket. A kaleidoscope of color balloons above you, preparing to lift you high above this quiet field outside Albuquerque. The pilot reports calm, clear skies for the journey ahead — your first hot air balloon ride. A flame roars and ropes drop to the ground below you. You have liftoff!

You spend the morning waving to the pinprick pedestrians below, reveling in the tranquility that comes from being high above it all. This feels poetic, so you mention it to your pilot, who probably just doesn’t hear you. Now that you think of it, it is pretty windy…

Your basket sways, thunder claps, and it becomes clear that his weather predictions were sorely mistaken. He fights to steer you back on track, but the swirling winds are clearly in charge here. The sky turns gray, and you brace yourself for a wild ride.

As you soar off course over the petroglyphs and into the desert, you think of Maria’s party tonight. Will you and your precious tub of Avocados From Mexico guacamole make it in time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

Though you know next to nothing about air travel, you decide to do your best to help celebrate Cinco de Mayo the best you know how:

  • Try to bond with your pilot: “Sometimes my mom says I’m full of hot air,” you say. He ignores you.
  • Break out the guac: Your bowl of Botanero Guac may not make it to Maria’s table, but you can still be the star of this satellite Cinco de Mayo.
  • Drop a few guac bombs: Five points to yourself if you can hit one of the cacti below with a glob of guac.
  • Play optical illusion tricks: Pretend you’re a giant who’s squishing the mountains and houses below between your fingers. Hey — houses! Is that a backyard Cinco de Mayo party you spy below?

As fast as it came on, the storm subsides. Your pilot opts to land on the front lawn of the house you spotted above, and you can hardly believe it when you realize it’s not just any party — it’s Maria’s Cinco de Mayo celebration!

You quickly become a Cinco de Mayo star as you tell your perilous tale between bites of guacamole goodness. You even get approval from your pilot who, as he hoists himself back up into the sky, shouts, “Where there’s guac made with Avocados From Mexico, there’s Cinco de Mayo!” How poetic, you think, as his avocado-adorned balloon fades into the distance.

Everyone will be asking you for the guacamole recipe from your iconic Cinco de Mayo. Direct them to Avocados From Mexico’s recipe archive so they can try yours, or find a signature snack of their own.
