It’s getting reallllll festive over here.
These skinny micheladas are kind of the perfect, flirty Cinco De Mayo drink, plus they’re so low on carbs/sugar/calories that you won’t even hate me in the morning.
I’m a big Stella fan ( not sponsored, just love an ice cold Stella ).
Stella is just like the ideal beer, in my opinion. It’s not too sweet, refreshing, & I’m pretty sure ( correct me if I’m wrong, guys ) it’s non-GMO.
Anyway. Let’s talk micheladas:
Any cocktail in my house HAS TO INCLUDE HERBS OR I CAN’T LIVE.
Obviously the fresher the better.
If I could grow my own herbs I’d be Mary Fucking Sunshine everyday, but I can’t. I feel that requires time, patience, & sun ( which our patio is currently lacking ). #dreams
For this little dime, I used fresh rosemary which really pops with the tomatoes & lime.
Here’s a quick little video to get you all excited:
Ok sooooo what’s the recipe??!
It’s so easy it hurts.
Skinny Michelada for Cinco De Drinko:
Directions: slice up tomatoes ( cut off stems, obviously ) & add them to a blender. Add the juice of 1 lemon & 1 lime. Add Worcestershire Sauce. Blend ( you can use a food processor too ). Salt the rim of a chilled glass. Add a full beer into the glass. Then pour in tomato concoction. Squeeze the juice of one lime on top. Add a little spicy sauce/Tabasco. Garnish with a rosemary stick. Cheers!
CINCO DE MAYO IS NOT COMPLETE WITHOUT SPICY NUTS.
YOU GUYS KNOW I LOVEEEE MY SPICY NUTS— YOU HAVEN’T LIVED UNTIL YOU’VE TRIED THEM. K?
I found mine at Whole Foods. If you can’t find them then make your own in 5 seconds. Buy your favorite nuts, add cayenne, a couple squeezes of lemon, & a few drops of olive oil. Mix it up & serve!
I also creeped around Amazon & found these if you’re looking for packaged nuts.
Happy Cinco De Drinko!! ( don’t forget to drink a glass of water for every cocktail you consume ; )!! ).
