    This is a Mexican alcoholic drink. A salted rim mug is filled with salt, lemon juice, hot pepper sauce, soy sauce, tomato and claim juice mix and cold beer. It's delicious and refreshing.

    I'm reviewing this reluctantly, as clearly the submitter and her family, and others enjoy this. But this was really not very good, and after doing some looking, it seems that the proportions are "backwards" from most michelada recipes. This had one part beer to 3 of clamato -- the majority of recipes are showing 1 part clamato to 3 or 4 parts beer! No offense, but to me, this ended up being bizarre tomato juice, rather than a beer cocktail. I think I will try a more "straight" version, and honestly, I hope someone posts "the usual" version so that there's better representation and choice regarding this drink.  -  15 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The only changes I made are to use worchestershire sauce and fresh key lime juice instead of lemon and soy sauce. You may also want to try it with an authentic Mexican beers like Modelo Especial or the like. Great way to beat the Texas summertime heat!  -  08 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A friend of mine made this for me from scratch using these ingredients back when I first started drinking, only she used worchestershire sauce instead of soy and lime juice instead of lemon juice. It's sort of like a Bloody Beer, only clammy. It's a must try at least once in your life. I have this at least once a summer. It's an acquired taste, but really a great spin on your usual summer drinks. NOTE: You can cut out the middle man and use Bloody Mary Mix, if you're low on ingredients.  -  02 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
