Beauty blogger and friend to the site Marina Klimasiewfski has developed what we believe to be, quite simply, the best Michelada ever. Guest post!!!!
“Some people call the Michelada a Mexican Bloody Mary. While it’s true that they share a savory taste not found in more typical cocktails, don’t expect tomato juice or celery stalks! The Michelada is a spicy beer cocktail with citrus notes.
“I remember my first Michelada. It was about eight years ago at a now extinct hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant on the Upper East Side called Taco Taco. The combination of spicy and salty immediately captivated me. No unadulterated Corona would ever be acceptable again. Adultery only! I begged the waitstaff to tell me their secrets, and ever since then I’ve tinkered with the recipe. Enjoy!”
- Juice of 1/2 a lime
- 2 dashes Cholula or other Mexican hot sauce
- 2 dashes Worchestershire sauce
- 2 dashes soy sauce
- 8 ounces Mexican beer, well chilled
- Sriracha salt and lime wedge for garnish
Run lime wedge over rim of glass and invert over Sriracha salt to coat. Add lime juice, hot sauce, Worchestershire sauce, and soy sauce to glass. Pour beer over mixture and stir gently. Top with additional hot sauce if desired.
