We have both alcohol and non-alcohol version.how-to-make-micheladaIf you’ve been following my blog, then you might be aware of my love for Mexican Cuisine and here’s another mouth-watering drink recipe to add to my Mexican collection –   ‘Michelada – Easy to Make Refreshing Mexican Drink’. It’s a perfect combination to Beat-the-Heat any day or just your casual Friday night quick drinks with friends/family. And if you are someone, who doesn’t like too much time prepping or making things, then this recipe is just what you need !!! As it has the style, taste and the effect you want and all you need is just 5 minutes 😉Michelada - Easy to Make Refreshing Mexican DrinkIf you are wondering – ‘What is this Michelada?‘ It’s a very popular Mexican drink that’s made using tomato juice (preferably fresh), lime juice, mix of hot+pepper sauces and beer. The classic recipe is served in a salt+chili mix rimmed glass and that’s exactly how we are doing it today. Some recipes are also made using ‘Clamato Juice’ (tomato juice+water+spices+clam broth) instead of tomato juice, so you definitely have tons of options to play around. But here, we are just making a classic version two ways – one with beer and one without.hot-drinksAs the temperature hit 90 degree Fahrenheit for us this week, this ‘Michelada – Easy to Make Refreshing Mexican Drink’ was the perfect thirst quencher and yes we guzzled both the beer and non-beer version. Now, since, it’s a Mexican drink, I’m using a Mexican beer however any light-medium beer is good. Also, with just 5 minutes needed to make this spicy treat, it’s absolutely customizable, you can make it less tomatoey, more beerish or less/spicier. I’ve even made a version with cooked shrimp on top and it goes really well with the spiciness of the drink.

::TIP::
Alway’s add the BEER when you’re Ready to Server the Drink for BEST RESULTS.
(Please don’t mix everything and store as the beer in it will run flat within few minutes).
