About Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo will be celebrated soon… with this super refreshing Peach Rosemary Michelada! The drink itself screams fiesta! It's perfect for bringing family and friends together throughout music, dance, parades, great food, and of course, drinks. 😉
As a resident of the great state of Texas, and having several Mexican-American friends, I started celebrating the day a few years ago. In my city, San Antonio, Cinco de Mayo is a big deal.
There is a rodeo, a big downtown parade, music featuring country, Tejano, and other rhythms, and many other extraordinary entertainers.
Schools and libraries celebrate the day in educational ways. Restaurants are packed-- mainly the ones on the River Walk. Bars and clubs host major parties, serving all kind of drinks, especially micheladas.
How to make michelada
I could say that micheladas are the official drink of Cinco de Mayo! Our own michelada is something to watch for.
It is easily made with light beer, peach juice, Clamato® Tomato Cocktail, lime, sugar, and ice.
As an option, you can sprinkle in a bit of chili powder or add a few drops of hot sauce. All we have to do is mix all the ingredients together in a large glass beer mug and enjoy. Awesome, right?
Another great thing is you can find the Clamato Tomato Cocktail in Walmart's juice aisle... as well the other ingredients, all in the same store.
Clamato® Tomato Juice Cocktail Original is a tomato cocktail that comes in other sizes -- including the 64 fl. oz size.
It adds more to your meals and cocktails - just like the perfect Michelada-- and also really spices up parties and get-togethers with family and friends!
We are serving our Peach Rosemary Michelada with grilled peaches wrapped in jamón and drizzled with a bit of honey -- which pairs with our drink.
Jamón is dry-cured ham similar to prosciutto.
I am telling ya, these sweet/tangy/spicy Peach Rosemary Micheladas will have you cheering for Cinco de Mayo along with your loved ones and friends... and having lots of fun!
Another great drink is this fruit cocktail drink! Now tell me, what are your plans for Cinco de Mayo? 😉
