Michelada - Easy to Make Refreshing Mexican Drink

What is a Michelada?

It’s a very popular tomato-based, spicy Mexican drink that’s made using simple and everyday kitchen ingredients.

Michelada Recipe Ingredients

  • Tomato Juice (preferably fresh)
  • Lime Juice
  •  A mix of Hot Pepper Sauces
  • Beer

The classic Michelada 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.

As the temperature hit 90 degrees Fahrenheit for us this week, this Classic Michelada Recipe 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 beer….ish  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).
