twist on a classic michelada

You’ll often find micheladas made with clamato, but we’re fans of the traditional hot sauce, lime and Worcestershire variation, plus a few secret ingredients. The tangy and savory flavors combined with the refreshing light beer make this our favorite summertime drink. Here’s how we made ours:

1 can or bottle of beer (something light like Modelo Especial is best)
½ tbsp tamari or soy sauce
½ tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1 lime
A few strong dashes of your favorite hot sauce (we like Valentina)
For serious extra tang, add in some of your favorite pickle brine

Ultimate seasoning to rim your glass: Combine a little salt, garlic pepper, smoked paprika, and sumac.

Place rim seasoning on a small plate, use a lime wedge to wet the rim of the glass and dip into seasonings. Add ice to glass, pour in beer, add remaining ingredients, stir and enjoy!
