Today I’m bringing you one of Sean’s all time favorite summer drinks. Since moving to Vegas almost 7 years ago we’ve yet to find a Michelada at any of the Mexican restaurants. Its made different everywhere you go, but most Michelada have some basic kitchen staples such as:

  1. Lime Juice
  2. Tajin seasoning for inside the drink and the rim of the glass
  3. Worcestershire sauce
  4. Hot Sauce
  5. Clam juice – Clamato brand

This drink is super easy to make and tastes so good on a hot sunny day. We were first introduced to it at our hometown Mexican restaurant, La Casita. Our favorite server, Johnny introduced us to this drink and Sean hasn’t been able to go back since.

The best way to describe this drink is a fun twist on a bloody mary. When I say fun twist, I really mean a FUN twist. This drink uses beer instead of liquor, which is my favorite part of this drink. I’m not a big liquor girl, but bring in beer and wine and I’m sold!

You can use whatever beer you have on hand, but if you’re buying beer just for this drink, I would recommend some of these.

Mexican Beer Choices:

  • Dos Equis
  • Pacifico
  • Cornoa
  • Modella
  • Sol

This recipe is exactly how Sean and I like our Chavela’s. You can add more or less hot sauce. Really however your taste buds are feeling that day. I do recommend trying this particular recipe if it’s your first time ever drinking a Chavela. I want your first experience to be WOW’ed and I know this recipe will wow you.
