If you've never heard of it, the Michelada is similar to a Bloody Mary except that the vodka is substituted with beer. It's rumored to be a good hangover remedy (perhaps a good thing to know after this past weekend's festivities) and is prepared in about a bajillion different ways.
So, in hopes of replicating the drinks I shared with Sam that morning I did taste-test, after taste-test, after taste-test (oh darn, right?!). Here's what I came up with...
YOU WILL NEED:
Course sea salt
Juice of 1 lime
A Mexican Beer (I used Modelo Especial)
Dash of Soy sauce
Dash of Worcestershire
Few dashes of Cholula (or more, if you like it HOT)
Tomato Juice (I prefer RW Knudsen Tomato Juice // found at Whole Foods)
Few slices of jalapeno
1 // Wet rim of beer mug with lime wedge and dip into course sea salt.
2 // Spoon ice into mug, then add next five ingredients.
3 // Top with Tomato juice and stir gently.
4 // Garnish with jalapeno slices.
Now, get crackin...open a cold one!
