Jose Cuervo Wants to Pay for Your Delivery Order in Honor of Cinco de Mayo

The tequila maker is picking up the tab of orders (250 per day, to be exact) made to local Mexican restaurants.

It's no surprise that Cinco de Mayo—like other holidays this spring—will not be celebrated the traditional way this year. But, that doesn't mean the celebration is canceled, per se.

Instead of hitting the bars to drink margaritas with friends (although you can easily make them at home) and eating at some of your favorite Mexican restaurants in town, everyone will instead be observing the holiday from the comforts of home. As a way to encourage the party to continue on, tequila brand Jose Cuervo has partnered up with Venmo to cover the costs of thousands of people's takeout orders from local, independent Mexican restaurant between now through Cinco de Mayo.

Here's how it works: All you have to do is order delivery from a local, independent Mexican restaurant (any business that has 10 or fewer locations nationwide) between now and Cinco de Mayo. Then, post a picture of your receipt on Twitter with the hashtags #CincoToGo and #CuervoContest, and tag @JoseCuervo. Two-hundred-and-fifty winners will be selected daily to have their lunch tab reimbursed through Venmo. (For more information, check out the official rules page.)

In addition to Jose Cuervo helping you help small restaurants through this contest, the company has also donated over one million dollars to U.S. charities, such as World Central Kitchen, to feed those in need.

It's so important to order takeout as much as you can right now in order to support all of your favorite restaurants as they weather this storm with all of us. And now, if you needed a little bit of an incentive to make this year's Cinco de Mayo celebration special, or to order some fire tacos, burritos, chips and guac, or even a to-go margarita, you definitely have it.
