michelob-ultra-cocktail-recipe

Hi Guys!! I hope you had an amazing weekend! I'm definitely not enjoying the crazy weather in Chicago lately but at least the next couple weeks are filled with fun events. One of the things I'm really looking forward to this February is The Big Game!
I've never been a big fan of sports but I do love getting together with friends, especially when there are food and a good beer involved. Today I'm partnering with Michelob ULTRA to share with you some tips to host a get together at home, plus two of my favorite recipes with Latino Flavor. Both of them are super easy to do, and low-cal ... emphasis in low-cal because the year is just starting and we have to stay on track with the New Year resolutions am I right?

Hola! Espero que hayan tenido un excelente fin de semana. Yo tengo que admitir que no estoy para nada emocionada por los siguientes días de invierno que nos esperan, pero al menos mis siguientes semanas están llenas de eventos divertidos y bueno, eso mejora las cosas un poco. Uno de los eventos por los que estoy esperando es la final del Football, porque aunque no soy fan de los deportes, el generalmente celebramos ese dia con amigos , una buena cerveza y mucha comida, aparte el show de medio tiempo nunca me lo pierdo (duh!)

Hoy estoy colaborando con Michelob ULTRA para compartirles dos de mis recetas favoritas para disfrutar durante el partido. La mejor parte es que las dos son de poquitas calorias, porque apenas vamos empezando el año y no quiero que le fallemos a nuestros propósitos de año nuevo.

When you host a get together at home, it's super important to have everyone's favorite drink. Most of my friends love beer (who doesn't?), so I always make sure to stock up before any event. Lately we have been choosing Michelob ULTRA over any other beer because it has less calories, ONLY 95! If you're looking to save some calories next time you go for a drink just get The Superior Light Beer. You're welcome!

Cuando tienes una celebración en casa una de las cosas más importantes es tener la bebida favorita de tus invitados. A la mayor parte de mis amigos les encanta la cerveza, así que casi siempre mantengo unas cuantas en el refrigerador. Ultimamente la que escogemos es Michelob ULTRA porque tiene pocas calorías, solo 95 por botella!

Another good idea is to have everything ready to prepare an easy cocktail just in case you have a guest who is not so keen of your drink choices. To this moment I don't know anyone who doesn't love a "Chelada" . It's very refreshing and light but most important , you can make it in less than a minute. You better be sure no one is missing a single moment of the game! . To prepare a Chelada all you have to do is mix in a glass 1/4 of a tablespoon of salt with and the juice of one lemon, then simply pour the beer in the glass. I also like to slightly coat the rim of my glass with chilli powder but that's totally optional.

Otra sugerencia es tener lo necesario para preparar un coctel sencillo en caso de que tengas algun invitado al que no le gustan mucho tus elecciones de bebidas. Hasta ahora no conozco a nadie que no le guste una Chelada, es super refrescante y ligera, además que la puedes hacer en menos de un minuto. Para prepararla, simplemente mezcla media cucharita de sal con el jugo de un limón en un vaso y luego sirve la cerveza. A mi me gusta ponerle chilito en polvo a la orilla de mi vaso pero eso es totalmente opcional.

Now let's talk about the second most important thing: FOOD! There is no need to stress over creating a variety of the most unique appetizers you can think of. Instead choose a recipe that you can make in a big batch and then throw in some extras like, guac, salsa and chips! Anyone who knows me well knows that your girl loves to serve traditional mexican dishes and "coctel de camaron" is one of my favorite appetizers, and I also think beer and seafood are the perfect match. So I had to share this recipe with you.

Ahora a hablar de lo segundo más importante: LA COMIDA! Juro que no es necesario estresarse en crear un bufet de entradas únicas. En vez de eso escoge una receta sencilla que puedas crear en mucha cantidad y luego agrega unos cuantos extras como salsas y guacamole. Nunca falla! Alguien que me conoce bien sabe que uno de mis platillos favoritos es el cocktel de Camaron , ademas de que pienso que la cerveza y los mariscos son la pareja perfecta. Asi que tenia que compartirles esta receta.

INGREDIENTS: (Serves 4)
32 oz Shrimp (raw or precooked)
8 limes
2 tablespoons of salt
1 tablespoon of english sauce
2 tomatoes
1/2 onion
INSTRUCTIONS:
Cut the shrimp in little pieces and spread it evenly over a container. Then add the juice of the limes and the salt.
Let it sit in the fridge until the shrimp gets fully cooked. *If you use raw shrimp, wait until the shrimp turns pink. I used precooked shrimp so I took about 20 minutes*
Then add the onion, tomatoes and english sauce, and mix it all together. Cover and chill in the fridge for another 10 minutes.
Serve cold and enjoy by itself of with tostadas!

INGREDIENTES:
32 OZ de camarón precocido o crudo
8 limones
2 cucharadas de sal
1 cucharada de salsa inglesa
2 tomates
1/2 cebolla


INSTRUCCIONES:
Corta el camaron en pedacitos y ponlo en un recipiente. Agrega el jugo de limón y la sal.
Deja los camarones reposar en el refrigerador hasta que estén cocidos. Yo utilice camaron precocido entonces solo tomo 20 minutos. Si usas camaron crudo, debes dejarlo hasta que cambie de color gris a rosita.

Después agrega la cebolla, tomate y salsa inglesa y revuelvelo completamente. Cubre el recipiente y ponlo en el refrigerador por 10 minutos más.

This recipe is going to save you tons of time in the kitchen. It pairs well with Michelob ULTRA because is low-cal as well, and It's also a great option to watch the game because it's very light and easy to snack on.

Esta receta aparte de ahorrarte muchísimo tiempo en la cocina es perfecta para ver el juego porque es muy ligera y fácil de picar . Además queda super bien con la cerveza Michelob ULTRA porque también es baja en calorías.

Last but not least, the only thing you can never forget to do is to relax and have fun. Hosting a game night or any other event can be stressful, but remember the most important thing is spending time with your friends, and creating new memories with them!
Tell me in a comment do you watch the big game? If so do you also host a party? What type of snacks do you serve. I want to know it all!

Por último, aunque tener invitados en casa puede llegar a ser estresante pero no olvides disfrutar y divertirte en el proceso, a fin de cuentas lo mas importante es pasar tiempo con los amigos y crear nuevas memorias juntos!


Dime en un comentario, tu hacer algun tipo de reunion para ver la final de temporada? Que es lo que haces y con qué tipo de comida lo acompañas?

5 ways to freshen up your look this year

1. Take extra care of your hair. 

Having healthy hair not only makes a difference on your look. It will also make you feel more confident after all the compliments you'll get on the daily.  There are several things we do that damage our hair without us even knowing!! (So many that we'll leave that topic for a future post.) But if I'm certain of something is that the products you use are the most important factor to prevent or reverse that damage, and improve the health of your mane. It's not a secret that I love Schwarzkopf GLISS® Hair Repair™ products, this line has five solution-based hair repair formulas but the one I'm using lately is The Ultimate Moisture line, using it every day gives you intense hydration and anti- breackage protection for stronger & smoother hair.  Seriously this line is a must if you're trying to grow your hair! By the way guess what is the next tip??  ....

2. Lenghten up your locks.

Nothing says new you more than a new Hairstyle. But if you're like me and you can't keep a "do" for more than 10 minutes, a longer and fuller mane will be all you need to change your look completely. The two products that I feel helped me the most when growing my hair were GLISS® Hair Repair™ Ultimate moisture anti-breackage treatment; which is a hair mask with liquid keratine that helps repairing damaged areas deep inside the hair and on the surface, and GLISS® Hair Repair™ Ultimate moisture express conditioner; which is a leave in spray that helps me to smooth and detangle my hair while brushing it.

3. polish your eyebrows 

Bushy brows are in, but that doesn't mean you should keep them untammed.  Make sure to keep them in shape by tweezing your strays and fill in sparce areas with light pencil strokes.

4. dare yourself to try a new trend.
Don't be affraid and get that fuzzy coat you have been eyeing since the begining of the season. Slip on those OTK boots you always thought you could never pull off. Trying on new pieces it's a fun way to update your wardrobe and give your look a twist.



 5 . Wear a new lipstick color 

Sporting a bold lippie color is probably the easiest way to lighten up your face. A red with blue undertones would be my first option (it's the most flattering tone in every skin color) but if that feels to intimidating for you, try a lighter color like orange, coral or fuschia!

New Year Update


all-black-outfit

Happy New Year Guys!!! I feel I've been away for so so long.  These holidays I decided to take some  time off to soak in every minute with my family and friends . I had a very quiet Cristmas and then I went to Cabo for New Years Eve with one of my girlfriends. I was enjoying my time there so much that I didn't take as many pictures as I usually do. Just in case you missed some of my snaps on instatories I'll share a couple cellphone photos + some trip advice here later.   Vacations were all fun and giggles but I came back with a cold that I just can't get rid off, what a crappy way to start the year right? How is your year going so far? I hope you're having a much better 2018 that I am!!
