Spicy Mexican Beer Micheladas are light, refreshing tomato (clamato) juice beer cocktails. Sip at brunch, lazy relaxed weekend game days, and Cinco de Mayo!
Micheladas are popular Mexican cocktails or “cerveza preparada” (prepared beer) that became popular in Mexico in the 40s as people started mixing beer with hot sauce or salsa.
If you like Bloody Mary’s then you will like this refreshing light beer cocktail.
True Micheladas must include lime, salt, and Worcestershire, soy sauce or Maggi sauce. I found Maggi sauce in the Latino section of my regular grocery store.
A classic Michelada’s flavor reflects the true origins of its name, mi chela helada, or “my cold, light beer.”
- 1 cup Mexican Beers Estrella Jalisco, Corona, Dos Equis Light, Bohemia
- 1 cup Clamato Juice
- 1 Fresh Lime Juice from about 1 medium juicy lime
- Tajin btw... Tajin is terrific on fruit, cucumbers, jicama and popcorn
- dash Cholula Hot Sauce
- 2 dashes Maggi seasoning or soy sauce
- 2 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
- pinch black pepper
- pinch course sea salt
In a tall glass, run a cut lime around the rim, pour Tagin on a plate, and salt the rim of the glasses.
In each glass, add a cup of Clamato, Cholula Hot Sauce, Maggin Seasoning, Worcestershire Sauce, a dash salt and pepper.
Mix well, add ice, tilt glass slightly and slowly pour beer into glass, stir gently to prevent fizzing.
Adjust seasonings as you prefer, more hot sauce etc.
Garnish with limes, celery, or chiles.
I first heard about Michelada’s from a friend who is from Mexico. This is a popular Southern California party drink, and they are served at Dodgers Stadium in LA!
