The Michelada


This Latin-style Caesar was allegedly created during the Mexican Revolution, when a general encouraged his troops add hot sauce to their beer for strength and good health. This drink works best with a chilled Mexican beer, but whatever you have on hand will likely work. You can also sub in tomato juice for the Clamato, but try it with the Clamato first – it gives it a Canadian edge.


  • 1 32-ounce bottle of Clamato juice, chilled
  • 3 12-ounce bottles of beer, chilled
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
  • 1 tsp Maggi Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • lime wedges for garnishing


  1. Stir the Clamato juice, beer, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce and Maggi seasoning together in a large pitcher.
  2. Mix the salt and chili powder on a small plate, rub the edges of eight lowball glasses with the lime wedges and dip the glasses in the mixture to coat the edges.
  3. Fill each glass with ice, pour in the Michelada mixture and garnish with lime wedges.
