The classic Mexican Michelada recipe kicks up the flavor of a cold beer. We break down the steps to the Michelada, or Chelada as some call it, to make it easy.


  • Salt
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 oz Lime juice
  • 2 drops Tabasco sauce
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pinch Ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch Celery salt
  • Mexican lager beer (such as Tecate, chilled)
  • Garnish: Lime wedge (optional)


  1. Rub the lime wedge along half the rim of the pint glass and dip into a mix of equal parts salt and cayenne pepper.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients except the beer.

  3. Fill with beer and garnish with a fresh lime wedge if you like.
