Michelada, Mexico’s Answer to the Bloody Mary
Feliz Dia de la Batailla de Puebla! Cinco de Mayo
We all love a good bloody Mary. But sometimes we want something a bit lighter. Hot days, picnics, and backyard barbecues are the perfect venue in which to roll out the Michelada recipe.
Pick your favorite Mexican beer, gather up a few ingredients, and get ready for good times and refreshing flavor!
