Ice Cold Micheladas: Perfect for Cinco de Mayo

Basically, you're going to either love or hate this Cinco de Mayo cocktail -- I never met a person who thought in between the two. I think the former ... much to my boyfriend's distaste.

It's called a Michelada. If you're not familiar, it's kinda like a Bloody Mary but with beer and without the tomato juice.

It's spicy, sour, fizzy, and salty all at the same time. I make these all the time to spice up a Corona.

Almost every region in Mexico and Latin America has their own version. See what I put in this unique cocktail ...


Ice Cold Michelada

  • 2 tablespoons course salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 dash hot sauce
  • 1 dash soy sauce
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 1 ice cold Mexican beer: Corona, Negra Modela, or Pacifico
  • Salt and lime wedge for garnish

1. Mix together salt and chili powder on a small plate. Rim a beer glass with a little lime juice and then dip in chili mixture to cover top of glass.

2. Add lime juice, hot sauce, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and a pinch of cayenne pepper -- more if you like it spicy

3. Slowly pour in beer. Garnish, stir gently, and enjoy!
