Ordered a Corona at a little hole in the wall Mexican food joint in Seattle not too long ago and this is how they served it. I wasn't expecting it, so it was a little weird at first, like when you think you're drinking tea and taste soda, if that makes sense. Once I realized that there was tomato juice in my beer, it was really good, and this is actually how I prefer lighter beers now. Thanks for sharing a great idea!
Must be an upper midwest favorite, it is also popular in Minnesota. I actually make mine to imitate a bloody mary, just with beer instead of vodka. Just delicious!
This is LOTS better with V8 juice, and a squeeze of lime, or made with the new lime flavored beers. A dash of Louisiana Hot Sauce and a sprinkle of salt perks it up, too. (The salt will make the beer foam, so leave room in your glass!). The recipe orginated in Wichita Falls, TX at a "hole in the wall" barbeque joint, The Bar-L Drive-In, back in the 30's or 40's, and draw beer (beer on tap) is the beer of choice.The Bar-L is still there, and open for business (and makes the best ribs in the State of Texas!).
I love red beer! This is how I make it as well
I have never tried this before. My brother in law drinks these (and also eats smoked oysters along side??). I do enjoy a cold beer on a hot day and enjoy clamato juice on its own sooo.. I tried it and I really liked it. Thank you...
i love red beer! it's popular in iowa too--everyone drank it when i was growing up w/ my grandma's homemade tomato juice. i love mine w/ clamato juice
This is quite similar to my Tomato-Beer Cooler I have posted here on 'Zaar, but I am trying it w/ the seasoned salt and a twist of lime as I type, and it is FAB-O!! Thanks for a new "twist" on an old fave! ~Manda
