Michelada Recipe


The Michelada blends two great brunch-cocktail qualities: it’s bubbly, and it’s savory. Less sweet than a Mimosa and less boozy than a Bloody Mary, this is a great excuse to drink beer at any time of day. Plus, Michelada is just so dang fun to say you’ll find yourself ordering them just to tell people about it.


Mexican lager beer, chilled
0.5 oz lime juice
2 dashes Tabasco sauce
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
Pinch celery salt
Pinch ground black pepper
