NEW YORK (AP) — ABC's Lara Spencer is apologizing for referring to Cinco de Mayo as "Cinco de Drinko" on a Good Morning America segment this week.

The anchor wore, then twirled, a sombrero and mentioned that the holiday was the biggest day of the year for margarita sales. She held what appeared to be a margarita.

She tweeted a day later that she got a little carried away and was sorry for the segment. MSNBC's Way Too Early show similarly apologized this week for showing a staff member shaking maracas and taking a swig from what was said to be a tequila bottle.

The holiday marks an 1862 battle victory by Mexican troops.
