When I first visited Mexico two years ago one of my favorite drinks was the michelada.
Also called chelada in some regions, it is basically Mexico’s hangover cure like Canada’s Caesar or America’s Bloody Mary.
Rease, Cailin and I showed up for Villa del Palmar’s bartending class and Erik originally offered up showing us how to make a margarita, but I know that hands down from working in a hostel bar in Cusco so I asked for the recipe for the michelada.
Personally I like a bit more spice in my drink, which apparently is more common in Guadalajara.
1 glass rimmed with salt
1 glass of ice
1 light Mexican beer
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tsp soy sauce
1.5 teaspoon salsa ingles or Worcestershire sauce
Perfect for sunny afternoons, especially after a late night out.
