Which came first, the chicken or the egg? I’ve argued both sides of that question for years and I’m sure each of you has taken one side or the other – or like me, has argued the ‘other side’ when appropriate! Now comes another set of questions:
Which came first? The Bloody Mary or the Virgin Mary (we’re talking beverages, here)!
Which came first? The Margarita or???
I think the Margarita came first, then Beergarita, and now, the Michelada. This lively drink is a cross between a Bloody Mary and a Beergarita … but I’ll let you be the judge!
Seasoned almost like a Mary but beer instead of vodka (and sometimes Tequila) … makes an interesting change!
So try this for Monday Night Football and you might just want to make this a regular at your next Fiesta!
- Lime wedge(s)
- Kosher salt
- 1-1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
- 1 oz. tomato juice
- 1/2 oz. fresh orange juice
- 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- Hot sauce to taste
- Mexican beer
Coat the edge of a pint glass (or pilsner glass) with the lime wedge along the rim and the outside. Spread Kosher salt on a paper towel and roll the damp glass in the salt to coat it well. Set aside to dry. (If making several drinks, do all of them at once.)
For each Michelada, add the above amount of lime juice, tomato juice, orange juice, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce to taste. Stir then add beer to fill the glass and gently stir again; serve at once.
If you really want it hot, mix some chili seasoning with the Kosher salt to coat the lip of the glass! It will look great and give the drink an extra kick.
