(April, 20 2012) - Bruvado Imports thinks it's lame that on Cinco de Mayo you have to choose between rocking a crisp beer or savoring a mixed drink. And, thankfully, so do the Mexican forefathers who created the Michelada, an authentic drink that is somewhere between the zesty goodness of a mixed drink and the refreshing boldness of a beer. To fire up the upcoming Cinco De Mayo fiesta, Bruvado Imports is offering the first ever Micheleda kit. This innovatively packaged kit includes 5 Imported Mexican Lagers, 1 (16oz) Bottle Camaronazo Shrimp Cocktail, Tapatio Hot Sauce, Tajín Seasoning, Twang Beer Lime Salt, and 5 Cups / Stir Sticks. All the ingredients you need to avoid that annoying Choose Your Adventure-esque quandary you face every Cinco de Mayo when picking your beverage experience. Bruvado Imports' Michelada kit is the first time this cherished Mexican drink has been offered in such an accessible and portable way. The Imported Mexican Lagers come from Cerveceria Mexicana, a beer producer that has the distinction of being the only Mexican-owned volume brewery and a time-honored source for clean finished, satisfying beer. The choice mixer ingredients are compiled from classic Michelada recipes, and since this isn't a premix product, you're in the driver's seat to get this traditional drink kicking with optimum piquant flavor. So mix it your way! The word "Michelada" is derived from combining the word "mix" with the popular Mexican word for beer "chela," the drink is literally a mixed drink with beer-ah, the best of both worlds! Some folks also call it a "Mexican Bloody Mary," "Red Eye," or "Red Beer." It is served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass. What better way to rock Mexican heritage then by enjoying a native delicacy brought to you by Bruvado Imports.
