In the Kitchen: Every day is Cinco De Mayo at VIVA!

DAVENPORT, Iowa - Ahead of a Cinco De Mayo, our friends from VIVA stopped by the kitchen to teach Johnnie how to make some signature margaritas called El Diablo and Paloma.  They also taught us how to make a signature dish - The Ahi tuna taco: Ginger Soy Vinaigrette.
