Michelada Recipes – Welcome to Mexico in a Frosty Mug

Welcome to my collection of michelada recipes . 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 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. They are horrible and may keep you from ever trying a real michelada. You are best off choosing your favorite blonde or amber Mexican beer and mixing your own. Its is super easy and delicious.

A Michelada is served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass. There are many recipe variations of this drink throughout Mexico and Latin America. We now have many additional variations in the united states as well. The drink can consist of any mix of the following ingredients.
