Michelada Recipe with Clamato Juice
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.
- 2 cups light Mexican beer Corona is good
- 8 ounces Clamato juice
- 6 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice rinds reserved
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons hot sauce
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce or Maggi sauce
- 1 teaspoon chili powder for rimming the blass
- Salt for rimming the glasses
- Limes for garnish if desired
Place enough salt and chili powder in a wide, shallow dish to cover the bottom.
Rub the rims of two glasses with the reserved lime rinds and dip them into the salt.
Fill the glasses with ice and set aside.
Place Clamato juice, lime juice, beer, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and soy sauce in a pitcher and mix well.
Pour into the prepared glasses, top with a few grinds of freshly ground black pepper, and serve.
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.
