Spicy Michelada

We are still hanging onto the summer weather around here and it just begs for cold beers on the deck. I’m stretching the al fresco cocktailing season out as long as I can. Tonight I was in the mood for more than just a beer. Enter the Michelada!

What you need:

  • 12 oz beer (you want something light/lager or ideally, a Mexican beer)
  • 1/2 cup V8 Juice
  • 2 TBSP lime juice
  • 1 TSP hot sauce (more or less to your heat level preference)
  • 1/2 TSP Worcestershire
  • 1/2 TSP Jane’s Krazy Original Mixed-Up Salt (add more if you love the saltiness)
Here’s the Mixed-up Salt. It has herbs, spices, dehydrated onion and garlic. YUMMMM.

In the bottom of a large mug or glass pour the V8 Juice, lime juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire, and salt. Top the mixture with your ice cold beer and gently stir up the beverage. I garnished mine with some pickled jalapeno slices because, well, I like the heat! But it would be delicious to rim with some of the Mixed-Up Salt or Tajin, and a garnish of lime wedge!
