Michelada Recipe


Beer Mug

Glass Guide- Beer Mug

The Michelada is interesting and its recipes can vary as much as the Bloody Mary. What you're essentially doing with this beer drink is spicing up your beer to your personal taste. The lime juice chills everything out and, depending on which sauces and how much of each you use, it can become a very spicy mixed drink (although the Maggi is tangy, not spicy).

The Michelada is a popular Mexican drink and really is best with a Mexican beer like Dos Equis or Negra Modelo. There are now bottled Micheladas available but they don't match up to the customization that this drink deserves.

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 3 minutes

Yield: 1 Drink


  • 12 ounces of beer
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 3 dashes of Tabasco sauce
  • 3 dashes soy sauce
  • 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 dashes of Maggi or habanero sauce
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. Pour the lime juice, sauces and pepper into a chilled beer mug or pint glass.
  2. Fill with beer.

Optionally, rim the glass with lime then salt. However, when pouring the beer be careful to not touch the salt as this will cause it to foam more.
