Happy Hour!

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.
