Tipsy Bartender drinks for Cinco De Mayo 2017

¡Feliz Cinco De Mayo!  As the tradition has become on this blog, I'm celebrating the holiday with drinks from Tipsy Bartender, beginning with the Michelada.

The most delicious Michelada ever...THE BOILING CRAB MICHELADA!
1 oz (30ml) Tequila Shot
Coronita Beer
4 oz (120ml) Clamato
1/2 (15ml) Fresh Lime Juice
Worcestershire Sauce
Hot Sauce
Dash of Salt
Rim with Chamoy and Tajin, Shrimp and Cucumbers
Considering that yesterday was Star Wars Day and tomorrow is Revenge of the Sixth, Brittany's Star Wars shirt is a serendipitous bonus.  So was her sticking a lime in Skyy's mouth so she finish the tag line.  I've been waiting for one of the Tipsy Girls to do that to him for years.

Follow over the jump for more recipes.

Brittany returns in the Mangoneada.

Tequila, mango and Mexican spices...MANGONEADA!
1 1/2 oz (45 ml) Tequila
1/2 oz (15 ml) Triple Sec
2 oz (60 ml) Mango Puree
1 oz (30 ml) Lime Juice
2 Dashes Tabasco
2 Dashes Tajin Chili Powder
Mexican Mango Lollipop
1 1/2 oz (45 ml) Tequila
1/2 oz (15 ml) Triple Sec
2 oz (60 ml) Puré Mango
1 oz (30 ml) de Jugo de Limón
2 gotitas de Tasbasco
2 gotitas de Tajín
Paletitas de Mango Mexicanas
This post is becoming more bilingual as it goes on.  The trend continues with the final video.  Let's see how well my readers understand Spanish in La Cazuela - Tipsy Bartender Mexico.

We went down to Mexico and had our friends show you a local drink....The Cazuela!

Fresh Grapefruit Juice
Fresh Orange Juice
Fresh Lime Juice
Grapefruit Slices
Orange Slices
Lime Slices
That was easier than I thought it would be.

Notice what's missing from today's videos?  Margaritas!  I decided to skip them this year after reading 5 Authentic Mexican Drinks That Aren’t A Margarita.  As the article noted, "the margarita is barely Mexican."  Don't worry, I'll get back to them next year, possibly along with other recipes Tipsy Bartender's Cinco De Mayo Drinks playlist.  After all, I'm environmentalist; I don't just recycle, I conserve my resources.
