The social network that celebrates Latin food
The first time I had one of these refreshing drinks I thought, “Wow, this is like a limonada and beer all in one! How come I didn’t think of this combination?” My next thought was, “I need to have another one.” A michelada goes down especially well on a hot sunny day or while enjoying a football game and eating some spicy Mexican food. Danger, you can’t have just one.
There are quite the variations of micheladas. Some are made with lime juice and assorted sauces, spices, peppers, and tomato juice, but I like to keep mine simple and make more of a “Chelada”.
1/4 cup ice
Mexican beer (recommend: Dos XX or Tecate)
¼ cup fresh lime juice
Sal Limón or coarse salt
Moisten rim of glass with a lime and coat with Sal Limón or salt. Add ice and lime juice. Add beer, and drink before the ice melts.
