An Authentic Mexican Michelada Recipe

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Total Time 10 mins


  • 1 Mexican lager beer Modelo is typical
  • Clamato or tomato juice, if you really can't stomach the idea of clam juice in your beer.
  • 3-4 splashes hot sauce more or less to taste. I use Tapatío
  • 2 splashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 splashes Maggi sauce or soy sauce
  • 1 lime juiced
  • Tajín seasoning or salt for the rim


  • Take about a tablespoon of Tajín (or salt) and sprinkle it on a small plate. Rub a slice of lime around the rim of the glass and then press the rim in the Tajín to salt the rim.
  • Fill the glass about 1/4 to 1/3 with the Clamato juice.
  • Add the hot sauce, the lime juice, the Worcestershire sauce, and the Maggi (or soy sauce). If you used Tajín to salt the rim, pour any excess from the plate into the glass.
  • Fill the rest with cold beer.
  • Garnish with a slice of lime and enjoy!
