My Cajun Michelada recipe! Try this hot mama at your next crawfish or crab boil. I live in Texas now, but am originally from Louisiana. This means for every recipe I come up with, I also have to create a Cajun version. I created this michelada recipe as a twist off of a Cajun Bloody Mary recipe. We will need to rim our glasses with Tony’s or Zatarain’s Cajun seasoning instead of salt for this one. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I’m just in the mood for something really spicy. If you aren’t, just use a little less Tabasco and go hang out with the women in the sewing room. Make sure you let me know what you think in the comments section below.
1 Lime Juiced
1/4 Tsp. Tony’s Seasoning (for the rim of your glass)
The Clamato Michelada is the staple go to recipe. I am not a very huge fan of tomato in my beer, but some folks are, so I thought I would include this recipe for all you weirdos out there. Clamato is a drink made with tomato juice, spices, and clam broth. If you like bloody beer you will love this version of michelada. If you don’t want to make your michelada with Clamato you can also make this recipe with tomato juice or any Bloody Mary mix of your choice. Zing-Zang is my favorite. This is a the best recipe for your hangovers. Do you ever get hangovers? It’s happened to me once or twice.
Mambo Seafood is a restaurant that began in the Hispanic neighborhoods in Houston Texas. There is also now a location in Dallas. They serve both American and Latin seafood dishes. But I’m not here to talk about their food. Mambo has one of the best Michelada mixes I have ever tasted. I have not been able to find the mix to purchase online, but you can get it at any of their restaurants. What if you don’t live anywhere near a Mambo Seafood? I’ve got you covered. It took me about a year to match the awesome taste of a Mambo Michelada recipe and now I’m going to share it with you, just in time for summer.
Your Favorite Beer (I like Pacifico or Carona)

Mix all of the ingredients except the beer in large pitcher.
Pour the Tajin Seasoning on a small plate.
Rub rims of pint glasses with lime wedge and dip them in salt mixture.
Fill glasses with ice, fill 1/2 with the Michelada mix, top with Beer, and garnish with a lime wedge.

Are you looking for a deliciously authentic Mexican Michelada recipe? Here is one I have found that they serve at a few Mexican restaurants in Killeen Texas. La Margaritas on Fort Hood Street has one of my favorite Michelada recipes. They have some pretty great food as well. Some of these ingredients might be hard to find, so if you don’t have a local Mexican grocery store you can always turn to Amazon.
