The michelada


The michelada
This beer cocktail is simple and delicious. For an even simpler version—the Chelada—salt the rim of an ice-filled pint glass, add light lager and fresh lime juice, and enjoy.


Serves 1
        Kosher salt
        ½ small lime
        1 12-fl.-oz. bottle light lager, such as Corona or Modelo Especial, chilled
        2 dashes Worchestershire sauce
        2 dashes soy sauce
        2 dashes hot pepper sauce, such as
        Cholula or Tabasco

        Freshly cracked black pepper.


1. Pour 2 Tbs. salt into a small, wide dish. Wet the rim of a chilled pint glass with the lime. Dip the rim into the salt, margaritastyle.

2. Fill the glass with ice and squeeze the lime over the ice. Fill the glass with beer and then add the Worchestershire, soy, and hot sauces. Give a pepper mill a single twist over the ice.

3. Stir gently until the drink takes on a uniform color. Serve immediately, with the remaining beer on the side for adding to the glass as you empty it. By the time you’ve finished, the heat of the drink will have subsided, and you’ll be ready for another.
