Bet You Can’t Make It Through This Mexican Cocktail List Without Salivating

As a kid, you couldn’t resist Latino sweets like tamarindos, paletas, chamoy and the list goes on. Thankfully, a handful of heaven-sent mixologists have learned how to mix our two favorite candies with ALCOHOL. Bottoms up!

Paleta Punch

All cocktails should come with Popsicles #paleta

This cocktail from Corazon y Miel might get you to finally stop chasing the paletero man for good. Dubbed “paleta en su jugo,” a rich rum mixes with a white wine to provide the aromatic base for you to dunk a creamy coconut paleta. It’s everything we ever dreamed of.

Tamarindo Toast

Happy belated belated bday to me ?? some peeps don't forget about me lol ??

Just when you thought micheladas couldn’t be any better, someone discovered how to give them an extra kick with this addition of fresh shrimp and some of our favorite childhood treats — a tamarindo stick and paleta! The 20/20 Draft House brings out all the Mexican candy stops by also including other munchies in their menu, like cacahuates japoneses dripping with chamoy.

Sinfully Good Boozy Paletas

In Los Angeles’ Silverlake neighborhood, Diablo Taco is getting into the paleta game with a variety of mouth-watering michelada-flavored popsicles. These paletas are currently being sold in the freezer aisle of select stores, as well as the home of the boys in blue — Dodger Stadium! Grab your pick from either jalapeño, tomato and lime, or passion fruit flavors, and dip them in your favorite beer.

Chicharron Crunch Cocktail

Renowned Mexican chefs Jaime Martin Del Campo and Ramiro Arvizu from Bell’s famous La Casita Mexicana restaurant opened up this restaurant last year that serves up mole dishes and cocktails, including the Placero, which is topped off with a salt and chicharrón rim. Sounds crazy, but you’ll change your mind when you try it.

Your Favorite Raspado, Boozy Style

Need to keep getting your alcoholic treat fix from chefs Jaime and Ramiro? Another cocktail on the Mexican menu is going to take you back to the days where you begged your parents to buy you a raspado when the sun was sweltering.

Mango Michelada & Lollipop Combo

The Tipsy Bartender has been our bible when it comes to Latino-inspired cocktails. This mango michelada cooler mixes in some of our favorite treats — some shots of Tapatio, fresh mango nectar (Jumex, if you’re an OG) and a mango-tamarindo paleta as the crowning glory. We wouldn’t expect anything less from the same genius that gave us the Flaming Hot Cheeto Shot. #BowDown

Juicy Jarritos Cocktails

Oh, childhood, the days where we didn’t give AF about how the sugar in soda could clog our arteries or give us diabetes. If you still don’t care, this Jarritos cocktail will give you the right sugar rush.

13 Ways To Clap Back To The Stupidest Thing Latinas Hear Too Often


13 Ways To Clap Back To The Stupidest Thing Latinas Hear Too Often

This is one of the most annoying / stereotypical / frustrating / offensive / wtf phrases a Latina can hear. Here are 13 smart responses para callar those stereotypical comments.

1. Are you for real?


People do deserve the benefit of the doubt.

2. WOW.


The initial shock leaves you speechless.

3. Tell yourself to be chill.


Often times ignorance is best fought with silence. It’s not really your job to teach people the difference between race and culture.

4. Pull up a map…


A history book, and a ton of paciencia.

5. Ríete.

You can listen to stupid comments and make them feel stupid by convincing them they told a joke.

6. Give them the killer look.


All it takes is one look to cut through the heart. We got it from our mamá.

7. Give them the ‘bye Felicia’ treatment.


Their lack of respect doesn’t deserve your time.

8. Try hard not to laugh.


Te entendemos, someone’s trying to tell you you don’t look like… the very thing you are?

9. Prepare for battle.


If after your history lesson, your fictitious joke and even your killer look, they still don’t get it, you get ready for phase two.

10. Reza por su alma.


And hope they learn to use Google soon.

11. Get real because this IS what a Latina looks like.


12. And this.


13. Even this.


So sorry to kill your J.Lo fantasy, but we come in all shades and this doesn’t make us any less Latina.
