Living in TX I got to experience so many wonderful and exotic Mexican recipes that I had never tried or heard of here in the North East. One of the things I was introduced to in TX is a Michelada. A Michelada is a Mexican cocktail made with beer, lime juice, and assorted sauces, spices, and peppers. It is served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass. And there are numerous variations of this beverage throughout Mexico and Latin America.
Here’s my twist of this delicious drink. Hope you like it.
1 lime, juiced
1 12 oz. can or bottle of Mexican beer (I like to use Corona Lite)
1 tbsp of Bloody Mary Mix (This can be adjusted to taste)
3 oz of Clamato
Salt for rimming (any coarse salt is great)
1. Cut one lime in half.
2. Use one half of the lime to juice the rim. Make sure the glass is nice and cold beforehand, this helps the salt stick to it.
3. Place the rim of the glass in your salt tray (or small plate). Gently, but firmly, press the rim into the salt, turning the glass so the salt builds up on the rim.
4. Fill the empty salted glass with ice.
5. Add the juice of the remaining half of lime, the Bloody Mix and the Clamato.
6. Pour in the beer, and stir with a spoon.
My hunny likes to add chili powder to the salt that will rim the glass for an added kick. And a friend of mine loves to add a shot of Tequila. So feel free to be creative and make the Michelada your own.
Please drink responsibly, and Enjoy!
