The most basic Michelada only adds lime juice and salt to a Mexican lager, but popular variations can include anything from hot sauce to soy sauce, tomato juice to clam juice. Here are a few of our favorite twists on this favorite Mexican beer cocktail:
1. Bloody Michael
To make this bad boy all you need is beer, tomato juice, and all the pickled veggies you can handle. Basically a bloody mary with beer instead of vodka…you can’t go wrong!
2. Michelada Pop
Mix tomato juice with your favorite michelada or bloody mary seasonings and freeze it into a popsicle. Now all you have to do is dunk that pop in a nice cool glass of beer and repeat!
3. Cocky Rooster
Instead of tomato juice, try adding a sriracha/soy sauce mixture instead for an Asian-inspired Michelada. Add in some garlic and pair it with a Tsing-Tao to take this to the next level.
4. Carrot Top
Top your Mexican lager off with a thick carrot juice instead of the traditional tomato juice. Add in some Cholula sauce if you’re feeling brave!
