For our money, a properly made Michelada is one of the most refreshing beer drinks available. Regardless of the time of year, we are instantly transported to a warm beach.

Michelada Ingredients:

A traditional Michelada is made from a combination of these ingredients

  • Light Mexican beer
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Hot sauce
  • A savory ingredient like Worcestershire sauce or Stu’s Smoked Jalapeno.

As with all things related to the bloody mary recipes, the secret in the perfect Michelada is all about striking the right balance for your mixture.

Also similar to your favorite bloody mary drink, the Michelada is a personal drink that you can tweak with both the ingredients and with the ratios to get it just the way you like it. Some recipes also call for tomato juice, which can sometimes be good, but we’ve found the most solid basic renditions omit it.

Some Michelada recipes call for tomato juice, some don’t.  but we’ve found the most solid basic renditions omit it.
