Cinco de Drinko (Cinco de Mayo + drink)

"Cinco de Drinko” (Cinco de Mayo + drink) is a jocular term that reflects how the Mexican holiday on the fifth of May has been turned into a drinking holiday in the United States. “Cinco de Drinko” has been cited in print since at least 1998.


Wikipedia: Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May") is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla). Mexican Americans also often see the day as a source of pride; one way they can honor their ethnicity is to celebrate this day.

The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico’s Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16.

Urban Dictionary
Cinco de Drinko
A clever play on “Cinco de Mayo,” yet another foreign “holiday” that white folks (particularly teens and those in their early 20s) use as an excuse to drink copious amounts of alcohol (in this case Cuervo and Corona)during daylight hours.
Spencer: Say, what are we doing for Cinco de Mayo?
Ashton: You mean Cinco de Drinko!! We’re gonna get gooned on tequila, broseph!!
