Happy Friday!!! There are only 9 Fridays left in the year 2021. Make sure you enjoy them to the fullest since they will pass you by faster than an angry mother running after her misbehaved child. It’s true, next thing you know it’s going to be New Year’s Eve. I still don’t understand how we find ourselves in the month of November already. Why does it feel like time is moving faster than usual!!???
Whether we like it or not, we are in the middle of autumn now. The weather is getting a bit more chilly so it’s the perfect time to grab your cozy San Marcos cobijas (you know, the ones with the animals such as a lion, a cheetah, Bambi’s mom or a horse), your favorite hoodie and a michelada (it’s never too cold for a michelada) to enjoy some good television. If you’re overwhelmed by the many options available on all your current streaming services, we are here to assist. This week our recommendations include 3 dramas, a thriller and a docuseries that will keep you hooked way past this weekend.
I know most people think that drinking warm things such as tea, coffee, hot chocolate is the thing to do when it’s getting cold outside…. well they’ re all WRONG! A cold michelada is the perfect drink during this season because it will keep you feeling nice and chill. With that idea in mind, we recommend having a michelada made with our world-famous “I Love Micheladas” mixes. We have our OG Brown Mix which is a bit more on the spicy side, as well as our Red Mix that provides the perfect balance between a tomato and spicy taste profile. The best thing about our mixes is that it saves you time and having to spend more money on extra ingredients. All you have to do is shake our “I Love Micheladas” bottle, grab a cup, prepare the rim (with chamoy, lemon and/or Tajín), pour our mix and combine it with your favorite beer or sparkling water.
Our 32 oz bottles of Red Mix and our OG Brown Mix are available at many latino grocery stores, Food 4 Less stores, and online by visiting www.ILoveMicheladas.com. There may be many choices for micheladas out there, but they all fall short to our mix made with love and superior ingredients.
It’s now time to get warm, gather the family and friends (or not) and start watching all these shows that are worthy of our viewing. Now we present to you our recommendations for this week!
