Michelada is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Foodie Extravaganza. We group monthly posting on the same chosen topic. This month we have recipes with beer.
I have been wanting to post a recipe for a Michelada for some time. It’s very similar to a Bloody Mary but uses lager beer instead of Vodka for the alcoholic component.
My husband and I had some fun making these together to see how we preferred them. He likes lime juices with Cholula hot sauce and different ratios of clamato to beer.
I settled on using lemon juice and an Extra-hot Louisiana hot pepper sauce. These little things can cause great changes in the flavor overall. Especially the hot sauce, which really brings out the intricate flavor.
I would be careful with the jugo, which is a type of Maggi bottled seasoning which has flavors similar to both soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. For that burst of umami flavor. Which is why you see those pop up in various Michelada recipes. It is very strong, so use a judicious hand.
The Tajin seasoning is perfect for salting the rim of the glass. However, it is optional. And you could opt to use salt instead.
