One Cocktail + One Appetizer = An Epic Cinco De Mayo Party Spicy Perspective

Throwing a party can be overwhelming. You can easily get lost in cleaning, decorating and just the general anxiety of having so many people in your personal living space. But remember, parties are meant to be fun. Especially if it's in honor of Cinco de Mayo -- and if margaritas are involved (which they always should be).

All you really need to have a great party is good food and great drinks. So long as you have those two key ingredients, your guests will be happy no matter the state of your home or mind. No need to make yourself broke supplying all your best dishes and stocking a full bar either. Just stick with one appetizer and one cocktail and you are guaranteed a great party -- one that you yourself will enjoy.

For this year's Cinco de Mayo festivities, we found 10 great drink + appetizer combos. All you have to do now is choose your favorite one.
