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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dip rims of 2 tall chilled glasses into a saucer of water, shake off excess, then dip rims into a saucer of salt.
  2. Fill each glass halfway with ice, then about one-third full with lime juice, and top off each with beer.
  3. Add Worcestershire and Tabasco to each. Garnish with lime wedges.
