A Mexican michelada recipe made with clamato juice, lime juice, beer and more. It’s the perfect alternative to your favorite bloody mary cocktail.

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.

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.

    Would adding cilantro on top be going overboard? I really wish I had the time to make these at home. What I’ve been doing is just buying mine online. I found this really nice Lava Michelada Mix that tastes amazing. It uses all natural ingredients and has 0 preservatives. Here’s a link for anyone interested:

      Stacy, I don’t think so, but you might have a textural issue if you use a lot.
