You CAN Drink Beer with Ice! The Michelada

by Krista

Img_1681One night back in Business School, I was hanging out with my friend Matt, who loves the Alman Brothers, and we were drinking beer. But it was all warm. There was ice in the house though, so I innocently suggested just throwing some ice in.

He was horrified.

I was not.

(To be honest, it didn’t stop him. He did drink the beer. With ice. But he kept saying "Dude, there’s ice in my beer!" I guess you had to be there.)

Well, the next time I have a case of warm beer and nowhere to go, I will make Micheladas. (Which, according to NPR, means My Cold Beer.) Micheladas like they serve at Green & Red. Or Mercado.

It’s my new summer drink. You should try one. Or four.

The Michelada ingredients vary depending on who you talk to. Having tried a bunch of different types of Micheladas now, I’d go for the lemony/lime version; no Clamato or tomato juice for me por favor. So more citrus-y than Bloody Mary-esque. But you’ll find some that are spicier…like these recipes.

Michelada with Clamato
*12 oz. Mexican Beer, non-dark
*6 oz Motts Clamato
*2 dashes of premium worcestershire sauce
*2 dashes Tabasco brand hot sauce
*juice from 2 non-yellow key limes
*1 pinch coarse ground black pepper
*1 pinch sea salt

Michelada with Maggi
*12 oz. Mexican Beer, non-dark,
*2 dashes of Jugo Sazonador (Maggi)
*2 dashes of premium Worcestershire sauce (Lea & Perrins)
*2 dashes Tabasco brand hot sauce
*juice from 2 non-yellow key limes

I’m not sure I’d enjoy ice cubes in my bitter, Krista. Now that would kill the real beer pleasure. Warm and flat, just how it should be.
