Momo’s Michelada

INTRO:  Welcome to My Big Fat Bloody Mary podcast where you will never drink alone. We are coming to you from the studios of the Bloody Mary Concert Series and we are being fueled by the La Crosse Distilling Co.’s Field Notes Vodka, whose corn-based vodka is just that- 100% Midwestern organic yellow dent corn. Besides the yeast and enzymes they use to break down the sugars in the corn, there’s nothing else used to make this spirit. It is double-distilled and filtered for a nice easy finish.

Word of the Day:”Michelada”

Sooo- What is that guy at the front of the marching band carrying a staff called…???

About the Michelada: From Serious Eats:

“One of the challenges with a michelada is the number of potential ingredients—hot sauces of a thousand stripes and chile powders galore, citrus juices, tomato, Clamato, and a dizzying array of flavorings, from Worcestershire to soy sauce, fish sauce to bouillon. Combine them in the wrong way, or in unwise ratios, and you’ll end up with something you might dare a friend to drink, not something you’d be willing to pay for…”

…The tomato juice, described as a quasi-necessary ingredient in so many write-ups of the drink, appeared in only a small fraction of the recipes I looked at. Quickly, I was able to see that a classic michelada really has only five critical components: beer, fresh lime juice, hot sauce, an umami bomb, and salt. Well, six ingredients, if you include ice. And ice is very much required.”

Company We Review : Momo’s Michelada Mix

Momo’s Michelada Mix Review

Company Story: 

Momo’s story started as a rescue mission until it became a michelada mission. KC and Momo had a friend who’s motorcycle had broken down near the Momotombo volcano in Nicaragua. KC flew down to bring the necessary motorcycle parts. Once the motorcycle was fixed, KC wanted to experience the Nicaraguan countryside, culture and some food and beverage. KC ordered a michelada at the first bar he stopped at and was blown away at how amazing and different that it was. It was light, refreshing and truly delicious. KC made it a point to text Momo right then and there telling her that he was going to try to figure out how to create a michelada that resembled the Nicaraguan micheladas. KC then turned the trip into a mission to drink as many micheladas as he could so that he could dissect the flavors. As you will see in the photo slide below, there was a lot of adventures to be had in Nicaragua and in pursuit of the perfect Michelada. Back in Austin, after many hours of mixing and tasting, the ready to drink Momo’s Michelada Mix was born. In every sip you can taste the adventure and authentic Central American spirit (along with the lemon, spices, and peppers) that KC found in Nicaragua.

How a volcano, a chicken  bus and a leaky boat led to the creation of a one of a kind michelada mix. Meet MOMOs, the michelada mix born in Nicaragua with a lot of blood, sweat and beers!

you say tomato, we say no way!

Momo’s is not your grandmama’s michelada mix. Many people that we talk to think that the Michelada is the cousin of the bloody mary, spiced tomato juice mixed with alcohol. Turns out there are different versions of the classic michelada served all over Central America, but our traditional Nicaraguan recipe has no tomato at all! Just fresh lemon, spicy peppers, and savory spices (which means not only is it tomato free, but Momo’s is also all natural and vegan) blended together and ready to drink with your favorite cold beer.
