I love a good Michelada, plenty of lime, a bit of heat, and tomato juice to round it all out. The perfect mix to add to your favorite Mexican beer.

(printable recipe)

for the chile-salt rim:
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chili powder

Combine the salt and chili powder and put on a small dish. Run a lime wedge around the rim of each glass then turn in the salt mixture.

for each glass:
1/4 c V8 (or other tomato based vegetable juice)
juice of 1/2 lime
dash of your favorite hot sauce (I like El Yucateco Chile Habanero)
dash worcestershire
Mexican beer, Modelo Especial or Tecate works well

After you rim each glass fill 3/4 of the way with ice. Add the ingredients in order, top with beer. Serve immediately.
Alternately, make the drink base in a pitcher, pour into glasses and top each with beer.


  1. Good recipe!! I found a great michelada mix at
    It had everything I like in a michelada already in it.

  2. I prefer to use fresh ingredients whenever possible, that is what makes a quality cocktail me thinks.The recipe and the pictures are really nice!

  3. Looks great. We used to make these with a chili beer from Twisted Pine Brewery in Colorado. We'd love if you shared this picture on
