We’re here for any excuse to have tacos and margaritas and this year, we’ve been given the greatest excuse of all – Cinco de Mayo is on a Taco Tuesday! And just because we can’t be together in-person doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate together!
On Taco Tuesday, 5/5, aSweatLife is hosting a fiesta of Cinco de Mayo proportions. We invited our friends at Lakeshore Beverage to join, and they’re bringing Michelob ULTRA and Cutwater Spirits Lime Margarita to the party.
Plus, we’re getting festive in the kitchen with our favorite wellness Chef Alia Dalal. She’ll show how to make a lightened up, creamy and craveable Elote Dip, inspired by Mexican Street Corn. You can serve the dip with chips or veggies, or she’ll show you how to add black beans and a chopped bell pepper to justify eating this for dinner. You’ll also learn how to make an agua fresca, a refreshing fruity beverage that’s perfect for spiking with Cutwater Canned Cocktails or your spirit of choice for a juicy, minimalist cocktail. Both recipes are flexible so you can substitute what you have on hand, and Chef Alia will be answering your questions and sharing her top tips as we go. And if you don’t feel like cooking, Moe’s Cantina (both River North and Wrigley locations) and La Luna have you covered with some delicious Cinco de Mayo packages!
The party doesn’t end there—the DJ Firm will be live on the turntables to really turn up the heat!
This fiesta will be free for all attendees. We’ll host the event in a private Zoom room. If you don’t have Zoom, you can download it here!
