I’m not going to lie–I gave a slight double take when Ktams suggested we make some Micheladas.
A Michelada is a Mexican, beer-based cocktail of sorts, usually made up of lime, Mexican beer (light or dark, depending on your preference), and hot sauce. For our first attempt we used Modelo Especial (you can also try Bohemia). The version we made was the Chelada.
- 1 12 oz Mexican beer
- 2-3 ice cubes
- 2 T lime juice
- 1 healthy serving of hot sauce (you can add more at the end if it seems a bit mild)
- 1/4 t sea salt
- Coarse salt to rim the glass (optional)
