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?
If you come to Chicago, Big Star and Taco Joint both make stellar micheladas. With delicious tacos to boot.
Thanks! I’ll check them out next time I’m in Chicago.
OMG! I love these too. It’s such a surprising flavor. Ceiba in D.C. makes a nice one.
We shall drink them next time I’m in DC or you’re in NYC. I’m planning a March work trip with a weekend add on.
