Raise A Glass

There Is Magic All Around You

A michelada is a traditional cocktail blend generally consisting of light beer, salt, lime juice & hot sauce. Many versions add a mixer to make a variety of exciting combinations that can be enjoyed anytime. Magic Zydeco Micheladas turn up the heat one step further by with a smattering of homemade seasoning blend sprinkled into each glass. Experiment with your favorite beer selections & create a custom cocktail all your own. Plus look to my pointers, The Essential Guide To Crafting An Impeccable Spice Blend, to learn how to make an entirely new combination of zesty flavors.

Style Points

Pennant Swizzle Sticks

Purchase wooden picks or skewers in a variety of sizes from 6 to 12-inches in length.
Choose a signature cocktail & glass to feature for the occasion.
Cut the skewers, if necessary, an inch or two above the lip.

Snip 1 3/4 x 2 3/4-inch triangles to resemble pennants from craft paper.
Use greens, browns & neutrals or team colors. The paper design is your play call.
Pierce two holes on the short side of the pennant with a craft punch.
Weave the wooden picks or skewers through the holes. 
Pop into glasses just before serving & sprinkle throughout the area for a bit of charm.
