So you’re thinking of making a couple of Mexican Michelada drinks for Friday night company? Or maybe just hanging out in your backyard on a Saturday afternoon with a nice barbecue going with some family and friends? This is a great alternative to your average beer. Take a mexican beer and yess it has to be a mexican beer to be considered a Mexican Michelada so go get some Montejo, Modelo, Dos XX, Tecate or Corona and get your Micheladas on!
A Mexican Michelada is a very popular beer based cocktail in Mexico and truly refreshing! There are a variety of Michelada recipes made in Mexico depending on what region you’re in. In future posts I will add some of these. Here’s the thing, this beer cocktail, at first sight when you see or hear what the ingredients are in making a true Mexican Michelada you may do what most everyone does that has never had a Michelada, turn there heads almost in digust or like Scooby Doo does when he is in shock with what Shaggy wants to do! Hahahha!
Why you ask?! Because the ingredients involved in a true Mexican Michelada for those of you that don’t know, can be a halting factor….but like I always say, everything that looks pleasing and appetizing to the eyes, has to be tried at least once! Well trust me, this will NOT be a once in a lifetime taste! PLEASE JUST TRUST ME ON THIS!!!
Some of the ingredients include Maggi Sauce, Tajin, Worcestershire Sauce and lime or lemon. You would think these ingredients would truly alter the flavor of the beer! Nooooooo!!!! It enhances it!!! THENNNN you add the lime to this mixture and FINALLY the beer over ice!!! AHHHH!!!! Truly refreshing!! The only thing that I will forewarn you about is that for this drink you add Tajin to the drink itself but also traditionally the rim of the glass and if you’re not like me that uses a straw (yes in Mexico they serve this drink with a straw!) you will get a good bit of tajin in your mouth when you drink it! It’s like the salt that’s added to the glass rim of a Margarita. So I suggest you try it both ways if you prefer not to use a straw and see what you like the best. Another alternative in to rim the glass with sea salt or regular salt or not anything!
- 1(12 oz) Mexican beer (like Montejo, Dos XX, Modelo, Corona)
- 1 lime
- worcestershire sauce (a couple of dashes)
- maggi sauce or soy sauce (a couple of dashes)
- ice cubes
|On a plate and combine some tajin and salt or just salt if you prefer. Rim the glass of a tall beer mug or glass with lime and flip mug or glass over on plate to cover with tajin and salt.|
|Add a couple of dashes of worcestershire sauce, maggi sauce (or soy sauce to mug). Juice half the lime and mix with ingredients. You can also add a couple of sprinkles of tajin to mix. Add ice cubes and finally the beer. Stir all together and serve immediately with or without a straw (some people do not like the taste of the tajin all over there lips). Do not allow the beer to water down from ice.|
