Delicious Spicy Micheladas

Recipe by  

"A Mexican favorite, the michelada is a simple way to make a cheap Mexican beer into a delicious drink that will quickly become a party favorite. I recommend a cheap Mexican beer such as Modelo® or Tecate® for best taste and to stay true to the michelada concept. Best served at a Mexican food barbecue alongside fajitas, Mexican rice, guacamole, salsa, and so on with family and friends!"

  1. Combine tomato and clam juice cocktail, thawed frozen orange juice concentrate, and lime juice in a large pitcher; mix.
  2. Stir the Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and 2 tablespoons salt through the cocktail mixture until the salt has dissolved.

  4. Fill the rimmed glass with ice. Pour 1/3 to 1/2 cup michelada mix, or to taste, over the ice. Fill the rest of the glass with beer and stir to serve.

I really like micheladas, they are so refreshing on hot Texas days! My friend likes Clamato in hers, however I am not a fan of its fishy taste. You can substitute with Spicy V8 juice or Bloody Mary mix or leave it out completely. If Maggi sauce is available where you live, try adding a dash or two to your drink. Cheers!

These were by far the most tasty micheladas I've EVER had. I'm not a great fan of a lot of tomato in my drinks, and this one has the right combination of orange, lime, tomato, and spice. Loved it!

I tried to make this for 1 beer & I used 1 1/2 tbsp of the Orange juice concentrate. I thought it was Too sweet & took away from the other flavors. whenever I have a party large enough to serve 24 beers, I'll review again.
