Cinco De Mayo Cocktails Bloody Gerry Micheladas

Officially, the day of May 4th is observed to celebrate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over the French Army at the Battle of Puebla. America’s tradition of celebrating Cinco De Mayo gained popularity in the late 80’s when beer companies cashed in on the celebratory nature and promoting the drinking culture to increase their sales. Due to the huge party theme many Americans mistake Cinco De Mayo for Mexico's Independence Day. So in honor of Cinco De Mayo also known to many as Cinco De Drinko, and the delicious culture Mexico has brought to our lives, we share our top drinks to celebrate.

One of the most delicious ways to enjoy a Mexican Lager is by creating the lighter, refreshing cousin to the Bloody Mary, the Michelada. Also known as tomato beer, red beer, beer bloody mary, or red rooster! Instead of using the typical watery, sour and oddly sweet Clamato Juice try using Bloody Gerry. It has just enough citrus and spice to create a mouthwatering and savory Michelada. 


Bloody Gerry Michelada

  • Chili Salt or Tajin Rim
  • Fill 16oz pint glass with ice
  • Fill 3/4 of glass with beer (we prefer Pacifico)

That’s a Chelada. Cheers!


The Margarita, Gerry’s recipe

The perfect margarita made with all fresh ingredients! I love margaritas. Let me rephrase that, I love good margaritas. This recipe took me about 6 months to perfect, and 5 years to share. I promise once you taste the freshness and balance of this recipe, you'll not only impress yourself but your friends too. This recipe is consistent and will come out the same exact way every time. Here are some dos and don'ts to make sure it comes out my way, Gerry's way. Use 2 heaping tablespoons white sugar. The most common mistake is people don't use enough white sugar because they think its too much. The drink will be tart. Don't worry most of the sugar stays in the shaker. Let the drink rest after shaking. That little bit of water from the ice melting will balance the cocktail.


  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers reposado tequila (current favorite is Casamigos Reposado®)
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • Salt Rim
  • 1 teaspoon brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier®), or to taste (optional)
