The second is a Michelada
The Michelada is a Mexican drink made with beer, lime juice, and assorted sauces, peppers, and spices. It is served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass. There are numerous variations on this drink. It’s definitely the Mexican version of a Bloody Mary but maybe a bit more kicked up. According to old wives’ folklore–it’s a good for curing hangovers! You may want to test that theory out on Friday morning
And for more exposure to iconic Mexican culture this spring, those of us living in the New York metropolitan area can purchase tickets for an amazing performance of “Kahlo más allá de Frida“ this May 13 through 16. It will be at the Gramercy Arts Theater and will highlight native Mexican, Frida Kahlo’s tragic and beautiful life.
If there is any person who could speak and reflect the intense passion of Mexican life, art and culture-it was most certainly Frida.
I’m excited to add this in to my list of things to do in celebration of Cinco de Mayo!
Whatever is on your agenda in celebration of this festive holiday, I hope you enjoy your version of Cinco de Mayo!
