How to Make the Perfect Chelada {Bloody Beer}


1. Cut the lime into wedges and coat the top edge of the glass with lime so the juice is on the rim. Then sprinkle the “Tajin” (you can also use margarita salt) over it turning the glass so its all over the edge of the rim.

2. Add ice into the glass and pour Clamato into the glass a little less than half-way.

3. Pour your beer of choice (light beer is best) into the glass, add a splash of  worcestershire sauce, squeeze a wedge of a lime (or a whole lime if you prefer) and lightly stir.

4. For an extra kick, you can also add Tapatio hot sauce. It really is the perfect chelada or michelada.
