As many of you know I live in San Antonio and we are about to celebrate Fiesta! Fiesta is a HUGE two week celebration where San Antonio practically shuts down to celebrate the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. It also celebrates the culture of this amazing city, raises a lot of money for local non-profits and also features tons of fun events and parades!

As you know I love a good cocktail (just follow #storibooksips) and what would be a better cocktail for Fiesta than a MICHELADA?! Today I’m so excited to be teaming up with party maven Amanda Gentis from Handmade Mood to bring you a fun and stylish DIY Michelada Bar featuring the BEST michelada mix company… Don Chelada!

DIY Michelada Bar

We had so much fun designing this party that would be perfect for a Fiesta-themed birthday, Cinco de Mayo or so may other events. Much of the party was handmade such as the cactuses which were cut from cardboard boxes and painted.

The must-have feature of our michelada bar is definitely Don Chelada. They have two different products which I’m obsessed with. First is their michelada mix. The Don Chelada’s Liquid Michelada Mix is a fully prepared Michelada mix with all the ingredients that would be selected and used by a bartender to prepare you a michelada. You just pour it into a cup over ice and then add the beer. SO easy!

Their other product is SO COOL! It’s their Don Chelada’s Michelada Cup. It’s a 24 oz. cup and inside of it is a small packet of michelada mix. You just pour the mix in and then add beer!

They have three flavors: original, spicy and lemon-lime. My favorite is the SPICY!
