Here’s the Recipe Written By: Elena Khury Photographed By: Mathew Martinez Modelo Michelada Looking for where to spend Thirsty Thursday this Cinco de Mayo? Red O Taste of Mexico at Fashion Island Newport Beach is the place to be! With amazing Mexican cocktails and great food specials, Red O has what you need to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Our personal favorite is the Modelo Michelada. If you have never tried this drink before, just imagine a Mexican bloody mary with an ice cold cerveza (beer). A michelada’s flavor reflects the true origin of its name, mi chela helada, means “my cold beer.” It’s a fun drink that starts with authentic Mexican beer—like Modelo Especial—mixed with salt, lime, ice, and a mixer of your choice. Heat things up with your favorite spices, add any garnish you can imagine, and enjoy!
