Alphabe-Thursday M

I'm linking up at Alphabe-THURSDAY today!

Today's letter is M!

In the spirit of being in Mexico for the next few weeks I am going to post Spanish words.


(bonus word - Mandilon - a married man who has less power than his wife...)

Maceta - flower pot

Machacar - to pound or crush. Server making our salsa and guacamole at Casa Country

Malecon - esplanade

The michelada, one of the most popular drinks in Mexico, is a beer-based cocktail made with lime, hot sauce, Worcestershire, and often tomato (or Clamato) juice, all served over ice in a glass with a salted rim.
This recipe appeared in Bon Appetit.

8 servings
1 32-oz. bottle chilled Clamato (about 4 cups)
1 32-oz. bottle or 3 12-oz. bottles chilled Mexican lager
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
1 tsp. Maggi Seasoning
2 Tbsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. chili powder
Lime wedges (for serving)
Mix Clamato, lager, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and Maggi Seasoning in a large pitcher.
Mix salt and chili powder on a small plate. Rub rims of pint glasses with lime wedges and dip in salt mixture. Fill glasses with ice, add Michelada mixture, and garnish with lime wedges.

And a few more Ms popping up in this poster.

And for MORE fun - a bar whose sign reads "Free Beer Tomorrow".
