And for moments like those when you are sharing with your friends and having to fun nothing like an ice cold beer but this time a beer cocktail, a famous one in Mexico. Some references mention that Michelada was created from the love Mexicans have of adding lime to food and drinks.

  • 1 Lime wedge
  • Salt enough to rim the glass
  • Ice cubes
  • 0.5 oz. lime juice
  • 1 cold beer light or dark


  • Rim the edge of a tall glass or beer mug with lime and salt
  • Add the ice cubes and lime juice.
  • Fill the glass with beer. And enjoy!


Some ingredients added to the more complex Michelada recipe are Clamato (tomato) juice, Maggi sauce, Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, soy sauce, black pepper, crushed Arbol pepper or any other powder chile pepper. Everyone has its personal version in Mexico. The more creative versions have oysters, shrimp, and celery. So be creative and make fabulous cocktails. And, even though I’m far away from Mexico, I watch the games of our Mexican Team.
