How To Make Michelada (Mexican Beer Cocktail)

Enjoy a fizzy sip with this michelada recipe. It fuses Mexican beer with lime juice and hot sauce for a bright drink with a kick.

Prep: 5 mins
Total: 5 mins


  • Tajín, or other chili-salt blend
  • kosher salt, or sea salt, to taste
  • 2 fl oz fresh lime juice, (from 2 limes), half a juiced lime reserved for the rim
  • 2 tsp hot sauce, preferably a Mexican-style brand like Tapatío
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 12 fl oz light Mexican beer, (1 bottle) such as Modelo, Pacífico, Tecate, Victoria, or Corona, well chilled


  1. Pour Tajín or salt into a small, shallow dish in an even layer. Rub a pint or pilsner glass's rim with the cut side of the reserved juiced lime half, then dip the glass into the dish to create a salt rim.

  2. Set glass right side up and fill with lime juice, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Add salt, fill glass with ice, and top with beer. Stir gently.

  3. Serve with remaining beer, topping up while drinking.
