The michelada is my favorite drink.
Maybe you’re not familiar with it. Also known as “cerveza preparada,” it is a beer cocktail of sorts.
Imagine a spicy bloody Mary with lots of lime juice, but replace the vodka with beer. Recipes vary but that’s the beauty of it: there are several ways to get to the same essential beverage.
Here’s one I like.
Or you could let someone else do the heavy lifting. I have had some terrific micheladas at these spots:
- Mesa Coyoacan (Brooklyn)
- Hotel San Jose (Austin)
- Lambert’s (also Austin)
- Loteria Grill (Los Angeles)
Have you tried a michelada? What did you think?
