Michelada Recipe

This combination of beer and tomato is popular in Mexico’s beach towns, but it also tastes great when you’re at home cheering on your favorite team. Just be sure that all the ingredients—the tomato juice, beer, even the glass—are well chilled. And be careful, these refreshing cocktails go down dangerously easy.

2 limes
2 teaspoons Mexican chile-lime seasoning, such as TAJÍN® brand, or ancho chile powder
2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
4 tablespoons chilled tomato juice
Worcestershire sauce 
12 ounces chilled beer, preferably lager-style

2 chilled tall glasses

1 Prep the glass rims

  • Juice 1½ limes. Cut the remaining ½ lime into 3 wedges.  
  • On a small plate, stir together the chile-lime seasoning and salt and spread in an even layer.

Run 1 lime wedge around the rim of each chilled glass. Dip the rims into the seasoning mixture to coat. 

2 Make the Micheladas
In each glass, stir together 2 tablespoons tomato juice, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and 1 dash Worcestershire sauce. Season the mixture lightly with salt. Fill each glass halfway with ice. Pour 6 ounces beer into each glass and stir gently to combine.   

3 Serve
Garnish each glass with a lime wedge, kick up your feet, and chill.
