Smoky Michelada Beer Cocktail

As I’m sure I’ve made you well aware via Facebook and Instagram, I’ve moved. True, it’s just a mile or two down the road from my old place but it has been crazy all the same — luckily, this Smoky Michelada Beer Cocktail has made it a tiny bit easier.

In fact, up until now, my whole life has packed up into less than 20 boxes — but that all changed this week. A few years into this blog and I’ve got shelves of antiques and, now that my home is also my office, I’ve got a professional test kitchen worth of equipment to deal with.

I don’t get overwhelmed easily but this move has (almost) gotten the best of me. Luckily, we were smart to have our priorities straight and the first things we moved into the new house were essentials — our passports, tax documents, toiletries, speakers, and fixings for this Smoky Michelada. True, I’ve still got days ahead of me before we’re settled in and set up but for today we’re toasting our new place and all the new memories that await.
