Michelada Beer Cocktail

This drink, similar to a Bloody Mary, dates back to the 1940s, when mixing beer with hot sauce became popular in Mexico. The name for this cocktail comes from the slang term for an iced beer, "chela helada". This morphed word - Michelada roughly translates to "my cold beer".


12 oz Mexican Beer (Tecate, Dos Equis or Negro Modelo)
6 oz Clamato® or Tomato Juice
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
2 dashes Worcestershire® sauce
2 dashes Tabasco® sauce
dash of black coarse pepper
dash of sea salt


Mix all ingredients ingredients except beer together. Pour clamato mixture in a salt-rimmed margarita or rocks glass with lots of ice, then add beer and top with a lime wedge.
