Recipe by Kumquat the Cat's friend
Submitted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Michelada takes its name from a Spanish slang term for cold beer. The lime juice adds a nice zing to the beer whereas the Worcestershire and Tabasco add an interesting depth to the taste. From a special issue of Saveur called The Best of Tex-Mex Cooking.
