Michelada Recipes – Welcome to My Collection

Welcome to my Michelada Recipes website. I have created this site because I love this Mexican concoction, and you will too. A Michelada is a Mexican drink made with beer, lime juice, sauces, salt and spices. It can also, as an option, contain Clamato Juice.

Brewing companies are even bottling variations of the cocktail. Miller has the Miller Chill. Budweiser has the Bud Light Lime, and if you like Clamato, the Chelada. I suggest you steer clear of these terrible abominations. You are best off choosing your favorite blonde or amber beer and mixing your own. Its easy.

Michelada Recipes

A Michelada is served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass. There are many recipe variations of this drink throughout Mexico and Latin America along with the many additional variations we now have in the united states. The drink can consist of any mix of the following ingredients. Beer, salt, Tajin, celery salt, seasoning salt, lemons, limes, Jugo Maggi,
Salsa Inglesa, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and Tabasco. If you like, and I don’t, you can also add Tomato juice, Clamato, your favorite Bloody Mary mix and many more. There are about as many michelada recipes as there are Taquerias in Texas.

On the next few pages you will be introduced to my many of my Michelada recipes. Keep in mind that these recipes can, and should to be adjusted to your particular taste. Just as everyone has a different Bloody Mary recipes, everyone should have their own Michelada recipes. So experiment, and when you create your favorite mixture please post it here to share with everyone.

    These recipes look terrific! Thanks.

    For convenience, instead of hauling all the ingredients out every time I want a single Michelada, I’ve been making my own Michelada mix:

    24 oz. lime juice. (Surprisingly, bottled lime juice is good, and I don’t know how long
    fresh lime juice would keep.)
    2 oz. Worcestershire sauce
    1 oz. Soy sauce
    1 oz. Tabasco or Chulula sauce (your choice)
    2 tsp. Tejin (or to your taste)
    2 tsp. salt (or to your taste)
    2 tsp. black pepper (or to your taste)

    Put a funnel in a clean quart-sized bottle. Add all the ingredients to funnel, adding the lime juice last so as to clear all the other ingredients down the funnel. Keep refrigerated.

    To use, run a little lime juice (or the mix itself) around the rim of a 16-oz. glass and coat with salt or Tejin, if you wish. Add ice to about 1/3 full. Add one oz. of mix. Add 12 oz. of beer (Modelo Especial, Bohemia, or your choice). Quick stir.

    Just tried Michelada yesterday in Cozumel, it was a hit in beer and Bloody Marys. We want to the store and purchased a lot of the ingredients to take back to the Lake of the Ozarks.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I use this recipe:
    hot chili ( ground ) Add: lemon or lime wedge
    sea salt clamato or v-8 to taste
    dried lemon peel ( ground ) Plain beer and just the spice is also good.
    garlic powder
    bay leaf ( ground )
    sesame seeds ( ground )
    cane sugar

    My husband and I drink these religiously. We have our own several variations of then but tend to stick to the version that we had as kids. Some regular clamato, a splash of tomato juice, couple taps of tapatio, habanero powder, pepper, salt & chili powder on the rim. Sometimes we garnish with olives & or celery. By the 6th or 7th… We normally just add tapatio & clamato, which tastes great as well! 😉 enjoy!

    I have tried the commercially available Michelada. They taste terrible. I simply hated them. It is better to mix ingredients and prepare it at home. it is easy and does not take much time.

  6. Barbara says:

    I am a great fan of Michelada and try new recipes for it. even I do not like putting tomato in it. I will definitely share my recipes here. I hope people will like these recipes.

  7. Christopher says:

    A lot of variations of Michelada are available each one with its distinct taste. Anyone can create their own recipes by adding more ingredients. It all depends on your creativity and taste. thanks for this lovely recipe.

    Oh, Michelada. I remember while in Mexico, every day I used to have it. I liked the taste of sauces that are put in it. please share the recipes. I am looking forward to preparing for myself and my family members.

    Looking forward to gourmet delight. I have tried Michelada while touring Mexico and loved it. I hope I will be able to prepare it nicely and have a treat on summer evenings.
