Cocktail of the Week: Michelada

Cocktail of the Week: Michelada

Super Bowl weekend is only a few days away, which means that it’s time to take out the ice cold cervezas for everyone! However, rather than have your usual elixir of hops, why not spice things up with a Mexican favorite, such as the Michelada? Known as a “Mexican Bloody Mary,” this sizzling beer cocktail, or “beertail,” easily fires up any Super Bowl night. You’ll already have plenty of salsa to accompany your nacho chips, so why not add some to your beer? It’ll save you time on preparing a creative drink that all your friends will appreciate, keeping your focus on the game. The Michelada has been popular in Mexico for decades and comes in numerous variations. Kevin “the food dude” Roberts, author of Munchies, offers his take on this Latin favorite. And ladies, depending on how much of the ingredients you add, the Michelada can be less than 100 calories, which means you’ll be ready for bikini season.
