Summer, we’re ready for you.


You can’t go wrong with la clásica.

Your favorite beer + tomato juice, a few secret sauces y un chingo de limón. Sas. ??


But there are a ton of other options, like this cocochelada.

It’s as if a michelada and a piña colada had a baby.


Or miches for those of us who can’t pick between food or drinks…

Because no one should ever have to pick.


Or between a bloody mary and a miche.

If you have a hard time deciding between a michelada and a bloody mary, Long Beach-based Micho & Mary mix (which was voted second-best Michelada-Bloody Mary mix, according to the brand’s Insta page) has a two-for-one combo you will want to try with your Tapatio and guacamole appetizer. Yummm!


Here’s this when a paleta alone isn’t enough to keep us cool.?

Because sometimes a paleta alone just doesn’t cut it.


There’s also this paleta that literally melts into a michelada.

@killnegativity has the right idea! ???? #TGIF #modelo #diablopops #michelada

Yep, it’s a paleta made of mix that you let sit in beer and the michelada is made as you watch it melt. Whoever created this is a heaven-sent genius.


Even non-oyster lovers drool over these michelada shooters.

Some people can’t stand the slimy texture of an oyster, but even those people wouldn’t be able to turn this shooter down. This mariscos restaurant in La Puente, Calif., is making oysters way more delicious with these tiny michelada shooters topped with salted rims and cucumber garnishes and a raw oyster.


And c’mon, these Mexican candy micheladas are what our dreams are made of!

Forget bougie shrimp cocktails served in a martini glass.

Those are such a joke compared to this. I’m never going back to that basic version.


These over-the-top chamoy and tamarindo micheladas already have us smacking our lips.

Others do flasks, but I’ll take one of these magical little bottles.

Some of the geniuses behind the iconic Oaxacan restaurant Guelaguetza created a michelada mix you can take on the go. Yasss!


And aside from a taco truck, this is the only other car I need in my life.

Come by @ramirezliquor and pick up your bottle of @ilovemicheladas for tonight's fight!

Craft beer snobs, this one’s for you.

Who says craft beer can’t get into the michelada game? Angel City is ready to be the MVP with its Srirachelada, a kegged beer cocktail mixed up to the brim with agave syrup, lime juice, pickled banana pepper juice, Clamato and you guessed it – Sriracha sauce.

It’s Time We Crown Gina Rodriguez The Social Media Fairy Godmother

@TheJessica_C / Twitter

High school senior Jessica Casanova reached for the stars on Twitter — and she grabbed one. A few months ago, Casanova asked “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez if she could borrow one of her dresses for prom. Gina, being the classy, gracious and very loving person she is, made sure Jessica’s dreams came true. Here’s how it all went down. Get ready to feel all warm and fuzzy.

This is the tweet that started it all.

We’ve all wanted to do this, right?

Which dress? This dress, but there was a problem.

Gina Rodriguez, who responded to the fan in less than two hours, doesn’t own that dress.

But it’s OK, because Gina had a plan.

But she does own this dress…

And Twitter’s collective hearts started to beat like super fast.

And she was determined to make her Casanova’s dream come true, so Gina offered her black dress instead.

Like, how can we be blessed by Godmother Gina?

*starts aggressively tweeting every celeb for #OOTD*

Clearly all of Gina’s fans were onboard to see this happen. Positive peer pressure at its finest.

BTW, Gina totally came through for Jessica! ? ? ? ?

And Gina was just as excited as Jessica that the dress had arrived!

“I don’t know what made me do it,” Jessica told Buffalo News about tweeting Gina in the first place. “I got chills,” she continued when talking about trying it on.

Here is a reenactment of how we assume Jessica reacted to getting the dress.

Celebs, take note. That’s how you do it, y’all.

Here is Casanova in Gina’s dress. Fits just right.

Gina even sent Jessica a video to make sure her prom night was going well. Why? Because Gina is classy AF. “Even though she’s filming a movie right now in London, she took her time to actually take a break and respond to me, making sure that my night was going well, which I appreciate that very much,” Jessica told TWC News Buffalo.

Jessica (and her date) totally slayed like Gina did when she won her Golden Globe.
