The Michelada’s were a hit at the Pin Party this past week, but I had never heard of them before hand. It was a new and exciting drink for most of the crowd. It is a refreshing and much lighter version of a Bloody Mary was most of the guests opinion, and it went great with the Fire-Roasted Chili we made.
Luckily the host of the party had enjoyed the cocktail before, so she knew what the end flavor should be. With that knowledge and a vague memory of the recipe in mind, we bravely ventured forth and came up with a great drink that everyone enjoyed.
How it was made:
4 12 oz bottles of light Mexican Beer (We used Corona Extra)
12 oz Tomato Juice
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp hot sauce
Juice of 1 lemon
Extra hot sauce for each drink to bring the heat up to each persons preference.
Pour everything into a large pitcher, give it a good stir, and serve chilled. You can rim the edge of the glass with a big of salt and chili powder for a nice added touch.
