Perfect Michelada The Mexican Bloody Mary #drink #bloodymary

The perfect balance of tomato, lime, hot sauce and an ice cold beer. A tradition that you shouldn’t miss.

You’ll Need:

For the Salty Rim

  • 2 teaspoons sea salt or coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili seasoning mix

For the Drink:

  • 6 ounces tomato juice or Bloody Mary Mix
  • 1/4 cup lime juice 2 to 3 limes
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce vegan
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce you may add more after trying the finished product
  • 12 ounces beer your favorite, I used Dos Equis
  • 3 green olives optional
  • 1 wedge lime optional


For the Rim:

  1. Mix the salt and chili seasoning in a saucer and spread wider than the rim of the glass.
  2. Use a lime wedge and rub around the rim of each glass.
  3. Hold the glass from the bottom and move straight down and place into the salt/chili seasoning mix. Lift and set aide.

For the Drink:

  1. Pour all of the drink ingredients into a large pitcher and mix.
  2. Fill up the glass with ice.
  3. Pour the mixed drink over the ice.
  4. Serve with olives and lime wedges for a little extra fun.


  • P.S. For the bar – a shortcut would be to have the olives already on the picks as they are in the photo right below.
  • They don’t need to be kept in the refrigerator for the short time they’ll be out. It’ll make things a little easier.
  • Another hint is if you pre-cut a tiny slice into the center of the lime wedge it will slip onto the class rim much easier. Just a little slice to get it started and then push a little bit onto the rim.
