If life gives you limes, make a michelada!
The first time I had one of these refreshing drinks I thought, “Wow, this is like a limonada and beer all in one! How come I didn’t think of this combination?” My next thought was, “I need to have another one.” A michelada goes down especially well on a hot sunny day or while enjoying a football game and eating some spicy Mexican food. Danger, you can’t have just one.
There are quite the variations of micheladas. Some are made with lime juice and assorted sauces, spices, peppers, and tomato juice, but I like to keep mine simple and make more of a “Chelada”.
Easy Chelada With Mexican Beer
- Fresh lime juice is going to produce a better tasting Chelada. Do not be tempted to use bottled lime juice.
