It’s getting reallllll festive over here.

These skinny micheladas are kind of the perfect, flirty Cinco De Mayo drink, plus they’re so low on carbs/sugar/calories that you won’t even hate me in the morning.

I’m a big Stella fan ( not sponsored, just love an ice cold Stella ).

Stella is just like the ideal beer, in my opinion. It’s not too sweet, refreshing, & I’m pretty sure ( correct me if I’m wrong, guys ) it’s non-GMO.

Anyway. Let’s talk micheladas:

Any cocktail in my house HAS TO INCLUDE HERBS OR I CAN’T LIVE.

Obviously the fresher the better.

If I could grow my own herbs I’d be Mary Fucking Sunshine everyday, but I can’t. I feel that requires time, patience, & sun ( which our patio is currently lacking ). #dreams

For this little dime, I used fresh rosemary which really pops with the tomatoes & lime.

Here’s a quick little video to get you all excited:

Ok sooooo what’s the recipe??!

It’s so easy it hurts.

Skinny Michelada for Cinco De Drinko:

2 tomatoes
1 lemon
2 limes
Tabasco to taste ( I like it to burn my face off )
A little Worcestershire Sauce
A couple rosemary sticks
Beer— your choice
A little salt for a half rimmed glass

Directions: slice up tomatoes ( cut off stems, obviously ) & add them to a blender. Add the juice of 1 lemon & 1 lime. Add Worcestershire Sauce. Blend ( you can use a food processor too ). Salt the rim of a chilled glass. Add a full beer into the glass. Then pour in tomato concoction. Squeeze the juice of one lime on top. Add a little spicy sauce/Tabasco. Garnish with a rosemary stick. Cheers!

I found mine at Whole Foods. If you can’t find them then make your own in 5 seconds. Buy your favorite nuts, add cayenne, a couple squeezes of lemon, & a few drops of olive oil. Mix it up & serve!

I also creeped around Amazon & found these if you’re looking for packaged nuts.

Happy Cinco De Drinko!! ( don’t forget to drink a glass of water for every cocktail you consume ; )!! ).

  1. These look delicious! And I grow simple basil and other easy herbs right on my kitchen windowsill, just an option!


  2. the spicy pecans from TJs are solo good.. I had to stop buying them because I would eat the whole bag in one sitting 🙂

    also… saw on youtube you were looking for a new non-soy bread because eziekial has soy (I’m allergic and I think soy is the worst thing you can eat regardless!!) – TJs sprouted 7 grain bread is amazing. I freeze it and then just break of a slice and pop in the toaster! There are no preservatives so the loaf goes bad fast!

    also also… what camera do you use? like day to day outfit shot/normal you taking the photos camera?? still working on my blog and know that is one of the most important investments before I launch! (Im an anal perfectionist like you and won’t launch till its perfect and I can 10000% have it my way and good to go)

  3. Looks great! No Cinco de Mayo for me (we don’t celebrate it in my home country) but I will try this nonetheless!

    Also, I was wondering – why did Kayla Itsines never return to the blog? I remember you did an interview with her and I loved what she had to say!

  4. Yum yum! You totally need to add “Tajin” chile powder next time and add in some Flamin´ Hot Cheetos to your spicy nut mix (imagine how good that would taste?)!


  5. I think Stella is an amazing beer choice! Lately I have been making a real effort to choose wine and beer from Europe! Especially with the arsenic found in some cheap CA wines. I have no problem with inexpensive products but my understanding is the content rules for wine and beer in France/Germany etc. are much stricter than in the US.
