Ice cold Michelada
I'm not really sure how this cocktail got started, but in our family we drink micheladas on New Year's day as a hangover cure. I'm not sure if it really works but it's a tradition. Further south in Mexico they add tomato or clamato juice to the michelada. These beer cocktails are very popular down in Baja (or Blaha) California. If you're watching your sodium intake, do not try this!


  • kosher salt or margarita salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle beer (Mexican, such as Corona or Pacifico)
  • 1-2 dash Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 lime, cut into wedges
  1. Dip rims of 2 tall chilled glasses into a saucer of water, shake off excess, then dip rims into a saucer of salt.
  2. Fill each glass halfway with ice, then about one-third full with lime juice, and top off each with beer.
  3. Add tabasco to each. Garnish with lime wedges.
