cocktail o'clock: michelada

Posted by

In a pint glass, combine 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 4 teaspoons soy sauce, and top with a Mexican beer, such as Corona. Season to taste with hot sauce. Makes 1 drink.

    This is not really a Michelada. A Michelada is also known as a "bloody beer" in Texas. It is tomato juice (low sodium V8 is the best), freshly squeezed limes (juice and rinds), ice, a Mexican beer (Tecate is great for this) and a generous splash of Tabasco (or my personal favorite, Louisiana Hot Sauce). On a hot summer day, there is nothing better. Cheers!

    According to the Times Style Magazine:

    "Nailing down exactly what is in a michelada, or its sibling, the chelada, is like defining Zen; there is a set of acceptable ingredients from which you choose your tastes and proceed. As a loose definition, a michelada has some kind of tomato juice in it, often Clamato, and a chelada doesn’t."

    The best michelada I ever had was in a tiny, out of the way dive in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. Made with very dark beer, the rim of the chilled mug was thickly crusted with a dried lime, salt and chile mixture. I dream of that dive to this day.
