Spice up your drinks Mexican style with this traditional Mexican drink. It’s called a Michelada. I compare it to the popular Bloody Mary, but made with more traditional Mexican ingredients. There are numerous variations and can be made with or without tomato juice, depending on your preferences. This version incorporates Clamato juice for more of a Bloody Mary style.

  1. Place enough salt and chili powder in a wide, shallow dish to cover the bottom.
  2. Rub the rims of two glasses with the reserved lime rinds and dip them into the salt.
  3. Fill the glasses with ice and set aside.

Recipe Notes

You don't have to mix it. You can pour everything but the beer in first, then top with beer, as I have done with the photo. Then your guests can mix as desired. Also, you can make a Michelada without tomato juice or Clamato juice.
