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.

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.
This is my best michelada recipe. I have substituted the traditional Mexican recipe with some easy to find ingredients. You can also make a variation of this recipe with tomato juice, Clamato, or Bloody Mary mix if you wish. I think putting tomato in beer is wrong, but to each their own. This is one of the best drinks for warm days by the pool or lake. Have fun with this recipe. If you want it more spicy add extra Tabasco. If you want more lime, add more. Try setting up a Michelada bar at your next pool party. Let me know what you think of my recipe in the comments below.
12oz. Beer ( Modelo Especial is my favorite)
1 lime juiced
2-3 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
2-3 dashes Tabasco Sauce
2 dashes of Soy Sauce
Kosher Salt for the rim
First Salt the rim of a tall glass. ( can substitute with seasoning salt like Tony’s) A squeeze of lime on the rim will help the salt stick.
Then Fill half of the glass with ice.
Next add the Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco Sauce,and Soy Sauce.
Next squeeze the lime in the glass. To make a real Michelada it takes at least a half of a large lime.
Pour in your favorite Mexican beer and enjoy.
If you like you can add 1/2 a cup of Clamato or tomato juice.

Easy Michelada Recipe
1 12 oz Mexican beer (such as Corona or Modelo)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 whole lime
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce (such as Cholula brand or Tabasco)
Cut the lime in half and slice off a thin wedge to reserve for the garnish. Squeeze the juice from the lime and mix in a large pint glass with the Worcestershire and Tabasco.
Mix the salt and chili powder together on a small plate. Use the lime wedge to coat the rim of a second pint glass and turn the glass upside-down and coat in the salt mixture.
Pour the lime and hot sauce mixture into the rimmed glass and slowly pour the beer on top. Gently stir with a spoon and serve with lime wedge.
