Picante Old Bay Michelada Beer Cocktail Recipe
Savory drinks don’t sound very interesting to me. So when I heard that Micheladas were Mexican beer cocktail, “Like a Bloody Mary, but with beer!” I was 1000% uninterested. I love beer cocktails, and I love tomato juice. But no thank you.
My dad, on the other hand, was interested in giving them a dry. He’s a huge fan of Midori Negra, so he bought a 6-pack, a bottle of Clamato, and set to work.
After an entire afternoon of mixing, tasting, and mixing some more, I’m not totally turned off by savory drinks anymore. But I’m certainly not going to go out of my way to drink them. But if you enjoy Bloody Mary’s, these Mexican beer cocktails are for you.
We settled on three different recipes. This one was probably the most popular and the easiest As my husband put it, “It tastes like salsa!” He was very excited.
Which definitely makes this a good drink to try on you next Mexican food night! This would pair very nicely with some tacos or a burrito.
Now, if you’re like me, you may be tempted to add a shot of tequila to these. Ignore that feeling. I love tequila. But we added a shot of it Jose Cuervo to this and my dad and I both gagged. He loved this drink, and that shot destroyed it for him. Stick to beer. 😛
