There is nothing I find more refreshing on a warm Sunday afternoon than this little Mexican delight called Michelada. It is a concoction of beer, tomato or Clamato juice, lime juice, seasonings and hot sauce served in a salt-rimmed ice-cold glass. It is a known hangover remedy but you certainly don’t need to wait to be hung over to slurp it down. You can omit the tomato or Clamato juice altogether if you prefer. The result will still be delightful.

A Michelada recipe:

1 bottle of cerveza
tomato or Clamato juice
the juice of half a lime
a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce
1 or 2 splashes of Maggi sauce or soy sauce
a few dashes of hot sauce, I used Tabasco (all other hot sauces are fine)
a chilled glass


1. Rim a glass with salt.
2. Add a good amount of ice cubes.
3. Fill the glass about 1/4 to1/3 with tomato or Clamato juice. Add the lime juice, the Worcestershire sauce, the Maggi or soy sauce, the hot sauce and fill the rest with cold beer.
4. Garnish with a wedge of lime and enjoy!
