Michelada

Michelada savory cocktail with hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, pepper, salt, and Mexican beer

The Michelada is perhaps the most famous incarnation of Mexico’s extensive family of cervezas preperadas – essentially, beer gussied up with hot sauce, spices, lime, and other ingredients.

Every Mexican bar has its own version of the Michelada, but our favorite hails from Jen Braafladt at Austin’s Hotel San José, which uses both soy and Worcestershire sauces to amp up the savory notes.

Ingredients

Instructions

Begin by rimming a tall glass with salt: wipe a lime wedge around the outside edge of the glass, and roll it in a plate filled with salt.

Fill the glass about halfway with ice. Build the drink in the order given. Garnish with a lime wheel or wedge, and serve with a stir stick or straw, along with the rest of the beer on the side.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
