I don’t think anything says Cinco de Mayo more than a crisp Corona. Corona is always my drink of choice while away in Mexico but it really is the perfect beer to have on hand for when your friends drop by - Cinco de Mayo or any other day of the year! This year, I’m planning on putting a bit of a twist on this classic favourite and making beeritas! I love adding a bit of citrus and sweet to my beer so these are perfect for our Cinco de Mayo celebrations, they’re also super simple!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Coarse salt
Ice
Limes
Simple syrup or agave syrup
Tequila


To start, rim all the glasses with coarse salt. Fill with ice and add the fresh squeezed juice of half a lime. Then, add your favourite sweetener, I used simple syrup but agave would also work perfectly! Fill with Corona and garnish with a lime wheel. If you’re feeling really adventurous, add just a splash of tequila!


These little cocktails are super refreshing and a total crowd pleaser.

I love easy recipes that are quick to whip up for guests. This Negra Modelo cheese sauce is so yummy and perfect for sharing!
Here’s what you’ll need:
8oz cream cheese
2 cups mexican cheese mix (cheddar, mozza, monterey jack)
One cup Negra Modelo
½ tsp Garlic salt


You will simply melt the cream cheese in a sauce pan, add in the shredded cheese and negra modelo, cook on low while constantly stirring until melted and combined. Add garlic salt to taste. Voila! A super simple and delicious cheese sauce for you and your amigos.


I chose to use Negra Modelo for this recipe because the dark beer adds such a rich flavour to the sauce and helps to enhance the rich taste of the cheddar and monterey jack.
