Despite the much-reported lime shortage in the US, Tequila bars across the globe are preparing for an influx of those celebrating Cinco de Mayo on 5 May.

The festival commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely win over French forces at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It is also seen as an opportunity to celebrate Mexican culture and achievements, particularly in the US.

As Tequila continues to gain in recognition as a sipping spirit, and not merely one for shooting, festival-goers will undoubtedly be seeking a stylish venue to toast to the occasion.

Last year, research by the Distilled Spirits Council of the US (DISCUS) revealed that Tequila made up a total of 18% of all spirits sales in bars across the US on Cinco de Mayo.

Similarly, Margarita sales figures showed that the drink accounted for 27% of total cocktail sales in 2011 and 2012, which then increased to 42% during the holiday.

But will the spirit experience the same success this year? Click through the following pages to see our pick of the world’s top 10 Tequila bars for Cinco de Mayo.
