summer cocktail: micheladas
so i will post cocktail recipes from time to time.
when i first started thinking about this post the recipe that came to mind was this one. beer, lime and chile? umm, yes please.
when i was younger i remember hanging out with my family who lives in baja. they would open a beer, squeeze in a lime and sprinkle it with some salt. it makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
i looked for recipes online and the one that stood out as the most authentic was this one. most items can be found in the hispanic aisle at the grocery store. i used the worcestershire sauce instead of the salsa ingelsa because i didn't have time to go to vallarta grocery store. there is also an option to finish it with some clamato.
bottle of beer - i used pacifico
salsa ingelsa or worcestershire sauce
tajin - salt with chili powder and lime
salt the rim of the glass with the lime and then dip in the tajin. juice the lime into the glass. i used the juice of one lime but you can use more or less. pour the beer over lime juice. add 2 shakes of the jugo maggi and 2 shakes of the worcestershire sauce. stir ingredients together. fill the glass with ice. finish with a pinch of tajin.
