Enjoy a cold and refreshing Chavela for that special occasion or on a hot sunny day. This drink is a fun twist on a bloody mary. Filled with beer and other delicious flavors. You and your guests will love it.
Okay guys, have you liked the Cinco de Mayo recipe so far? Today is the final recipe and I saved the best for last. Today I’m bringing you one of Sean’s all time favorite drinks. Since moving to Vegas we’ve yet to find it at any of the Mexican restaurants and when I ask people about this particular beverage, they have no clue what I’m talking about.
So with out further ado please welcome recipe number 3…Chavela!! This drink is super easy to make and tastes so good on a hot sunny day. We were first introduced to Chavela’s at our hometown Mexican restaurant, La Casita. Our favorite server, Johnny introduced us to this drink and Sean hasn’t been able to go back since.
The best way to describe this drink is a fun twist on a bloody mary. When I say fun twist, I really mean a FUN twist. This drink uses beer instead of liquor, which is my favorite part of this drink. I’m not a big liquor girl, but bring in beer and wine and I’m sold!
Chavela’s also use clamato juice instead of a tomato base juice. So it’s lighter and doesn’t make you feel full. Then you add in the lime juice, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce and you have one delicious and amazing drink.
You can use whatever kind of beer you have on hand, but if you’re buying some beer just for this drink, I suggest you get a Mexican beer like Dos Equis. Also this recipe is exactly how Sean and I like our Chavela’s. You can add more or less hot sauce. Really however your taste buds are feeling that day. I do recommend trying this particular recipe if it’s your first time ever drinking a Chavela. I want your first experience to be WOW’ed and I know this recipe will wow you.
Cheers to it being Friday and almost Cinco de Mayo. Remember this drink when you’re planning your party or in need of a nice cold beverage. Enjoy!
