This recipe may sound a bit odd, but this is the best beer cocktail I have ever had. Very refreshing on a hot summer afternoon. Bet you can't drink just one. If you have sangrita, use it in place of the steak sauce.

We couldn't drink just one. Between the four of us we drank 3/4 of ONE drink. This was a waste of a perfectly good beer. Read More

Hi! This is a very interesting recipe I am from Mexico City and the Michelada I know is made with Maggi sauce (Jugo Maggi) hot sauce or chili powder (chile piquin) lemons and salt. It is also better if you use a very cold beer instead of ice this way the taste of beer is stronger. Read More

I lived in Miami for years and this is the only way I drink my beer. When I'm out at the bar-I simply have the rim the glass with salt ice beer and two fresh lime slices on the side. A great and refreshing way to drink beer-and the beer lasts longer. Read More

When I was in Mexico they had the lime already frozen in the glass then the ice cubes don't water down your beer. Read More

As someone who drinks Micheladas alot I thought I'd try this version. Not bad. But in the future stick to the basics. Tecate Beer Spicy Clamato lime and salt. Then add chili to taste. Read More

I really love beer and adventure but I must have messed it up. I am going to have one by someone who knows how to make them. I may try the tomato based addition as someone else mentioned was needed. I am bummed as I had been planning on making it for about 6 months. Read More
