Happy Michelada Day!
Cheers to Michelada Day!
Stir up your beer into a Michelada!
A refreshing and tasty beer cocktail, perfect to enjoy in this Hong Kong summer heat. Here is our variation of a Michelada and how you can spice one up even more.
Our base recipe starts with:
-Kosher or sea salt
-2 ounces (60ml) fresh juice from 2 limes (see note), half a juiced lime reserved for the rim
-2 teaspoons (10ml) hot sauce, preferably a Mexican-style brand like Tapatío (our favorite); see note
-1 teaspoon (5ml) Worcestershire sauce
-Beer of choice
Pour salt into a small, shallow dish in an even layer. Rub a pint or pilsner glass rim with the cut side of the reserved juiced lime half, then dip glass into the dish to create a salt rim.
Set glass right side up and fill with lime juice, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Add a pinch or two of salt, fill glass with ice, and top with beer. Stir gently if you want to mix it up a bit. Serve with remaining beer, topping up as you drink
Top yours up with one of our brew picks
