If you like beer and always find yourself ordering a Bloody Mary when it’s on the menu, then you’ll love a Clamato Michelada. Not familiar with the drink? Well, it’s about to blow up your TikTok FYP so here’s a crash course: A Michelada (pronounced mee-cheh-lah-dah) is a Mexican cocktail made with beer, lime juice, assorted sauces, spices, chili peppers and, of course, Clamato juice. Sounds delish, right? Here’s how to make it.
TikTok’s Favorite Summer Sipper: How to Make an Authentic Michelada
Micheladas are easy to prepare and don’t require a lot of ingredients. In fact, you’ll probably already have most of them in your kitchen. Follow the recipe below to make one cocktail:
- 4 ounces Clamato Original
- 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
- 2 dashes pepper sauce
- 1 12-ounce bottle of beer
- 1 lime
- Run lime across rim of mug
- Dip mug in Tajín to coat evenly
- Add ice
- Add lime juice, Worcestershire sauce and pepper sauce
- Fill with Clamato and beer
- Garnish with a lime wheel
While a classic Michelada is usually our go-to, there are plenty of ways to jazz it up if you’re looking for even more flavor. We recommend adding a spicy kick, trying a refreshing spin, or going tropical. If you like it spicy, add in soy sauce and chipotle hot sauce. For a refreshing take, use pineapple juice, a light beer and drizzle with chamoy sauce. And if you want to go tropical, rim the glass with sugar instead of Tajín and add orange juice.
Voilá: The savory, versatile and easy-to-make drink you’ll want to sip on all summer long. As long as you have Clamato and beer, you can add just about anything else your heart desires.
