can/bottle Mexican Beer such as Corona or Modelo Especial
One Lime (cut in half)
Splash of worcester sauce
Splash of Maggi or soy sauce
Splash of hot sauce
1/2 cup or Clamato Juice
For the Sangria:
Its best to have the fruit, wine and juice well chilled. The rum can be room temperature to help dissolve the sugar in a following step.
Slice the lemon, lime and orange into thin rounds and place them into a large glass pitcher.
Pour in the rum and sugar, then stir to or shake pitcher a little to mix rum and sugar well.
Chill in the refrigerator for about two to three hours.
Pour in wine and orange or pineapple juice. Adjust sweetness to taste. (let sit another hour or two to really incorporate the flavors)
For the Spicy Mezcal Margarita
For the habanero mezcal, mix one sliced habanero with 3/4 to 1 cup mezcal in a glass jar and set it in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours to incorporate the flavors. If you don't want to do this you can add 2 slices fresh jalapeno to the tequila or mezcal when creating the drink.
Combine salt and tajin (if using).
Rub lime slice around top of serving glass then dip in salt/sugar mixture.
Combine the lime juice, mezcal or tequila, and agave syrup (if using) into serving glass.
Add the triple sec or orange liquor and slightly stir.
Add a few ice cubes and serve.
For the Michelada
Mix salt and Tajin in a bowl or small plate
Rub cut end of lime over the rim of the serving glass and then dip in salt/tajin mixture
Squeeze 1/2 of the juice of a lime into the serving glass
Add a splash or two each of the worcester sauce, maggi or soy sauce, and hot sauce.
Pour the bottle or can of beer into the glass by pouring slowly and tipping glass a little to the side to avoid foam.
Add the clamato and ice and serve.
Notes for Sangria: For the rum, I prefer either a white rum, pineapple or mango rum. These give a fruity flavor to the sangria.
For the wine, I prefer a medium to light sweetness or dry wine. I usually buy a cheap bottle because you are incorporating all of the other flavors. If you use a really sweet wine, use less sugar in the recipe.
You can also use other fruit in the sangria. Strawberries and Apples do quite well. For the juice, I prefer either orange or pineapple juice. I've also made it with mango juice or nectar which is also great.
Experiment with the flavors. It's easy and fun!!
Notes for Spicy Mezcal Margaritas. The mezcal will create a more smoky margarita. If you don't like the smokiness, use a white tequila instead. The tajin salt mix will give it an authentic look and taste.
Notes for the Michelada: I prefer using the spicy Clamato juice. You can also use spicy v-8 juice but the flavor will not be the same. I say 1/4 to 1/2 cup of clamato juice because everybody likes their differently. Pour some and taste until the desired flavor. For the hot sauce I prefer Valentina, but any brand of hot sauce will work.
If you’re still debating whether or not to to ‘mingle with the devil’, relax, let your hair down, and enjoy yourself because tequila has been linked to weight loss, so seriously no excuses – we’ve got you covered
I love them sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and then filled with vanilla or coffee flavored ice cream drizzled with some hot fudge sauce, perfect for Cinco demayo but just use flour tortillas instead of wontons
Don’t get me wrong, I’m always down for a friendly game of flip cup which of course involves drinking an inordinate amount of beer in a relay race setting, but aside from fun and games, beer just isn’t my thing
The hot weather parade marches on and so do the summer drinkrecipes. Those foods and getting sick on the rides (no doubt from eating too much of those same foods) was definitely one of the best parts of being out of school
