How To: Mix a Michelada drink, aka the Spicy Beer cocktail

Mix a Michelada drink, aka the Spicy Beer cocktail

Although it's a loosely defining term, the Michelada (or cerveza prepared) is a wonderful mix of beer, lime juice, hot sauce, and soy sauce. You would never think that these things can actually taste good together, but if that's the train of thought you have, you don't know what you're missing!

Maria Collins brings a taste of the Southwest to her spicy Michelada. You can make these with any beer you like, but it's best with ice-cold Mexican beer. Lots of fresh lime juice, a touch of soy sauce and Worcestershire, and as much hot sauce as you need to break a sweat, make a cocktail that's perfect for cookouts, picnics and parties.
