Spent a bit too much time in the sun? Not to worry, the Michelada is a delicious Mexican beer cocktail that livens things up with a combination of Bloody Mary mix and hot sauce.  Stay in the shade and sip your Vitamin C.

It couldn’t be simpler to make this colorful cocktail. We give it 5 minutes from prep to enjoying that first cold sip.

The fresh cilantro, lime juice, and Tajin are the heavy hitters that take this drink from average to wow. Don’t have tajin on hand? Combine mild chili and sea salt with a squeeze of lime juice and rim the glass with that instead.

Want to kick this drink up another notch? Swap out Bloody Mary mix for Clamato juice. Cheers!
