Ojo Rojo

Looking for a cerveza preperada with tomato juice (or Clamato)? If you order a Michelada, you might get that – or you might get a more streamlined, savory version that omits the tomato base and is considered more traditional in some circles.

For a guaranteed tomato-based drink, order an Ojo Rojo (red eye) instead. Like a Michelada, it contains Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, hot sauce, and lime – but also tomato juice or Clamato. Everyone has a different recipe they prefer; try our starter recipe, and then adjust until you find the perfect ratio.

The Ojo Rojo is typically served in a tall beer glass rimmed with salt (or chile salt, like Tajín). The entire beer probably won’t fit in the glass, which is fine – serve the drink with the remainder of the beer, and let the drinker top off as necessary.



Begin by rimming a tall glass with salt (or chile 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.

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.
