Recipe Spotlight: Modelo’s Perfect Mother’s Day Grilling/Cocktail Recipes



Tony and his mom have always loved cooking together, and each year on Mother's Day, Tony cooks her some of their favorite dishes to celebrate, many of which his mom taught him how to prepare over the years! According to Tony, there's no better way to say “thanks" to Mom for all of her hard work and support than by whipping up a tasty meal, like their go-to Gonzelez's Grilled Carne Asada, Tony's Charred Elotes (corn) with Queso Fresco, or for an extra special twist, a special Michelada recipe. This Mexican cocktail, most similar to a Bloody Mary, features a blend of Modelo Especial and Modelo Negra along with tomato juice, hot sauce, sweet mango and savory tamarind for the ultimate Mother's Day libation.

About Cruzan® Rum
Named for the people of St. Croix (Crucians), Cruzan® Rum is synonymous with the spirit of the island whose unpretentious and authentic lifestyle proves that life -- like our rum -- is more enjoyable when you embrace The Don't Hurry™ and sit back, relax and take things one sip at a time. The Nelthropp family, who has called St. Croix home for eight generations and runs the distillery to this day, crafts each of its rums with natural ingredients and a five-column distillation process. Cruzan® also touts one of the cleanest-tasting rums in the industry -- a characteristic derived from crafting a spirit with low levels of fusel oils, a by-product of the distillation process which, if not removed, can taint the smell and taste of the rum. www.cruzanrum.com
