Make Mine a Michelada
Don't be surprised if you start to hear the word "Michelada" a little more often. In a time when beer cocktails are starting to become more popular, the Michelada is a spicy version that is coming on strong from south of the border. Your basic Michelada is beer served with lime juice, assorted sweet-and-sour spices, chile pepper or Tabasco and ice, in a glass with a salted rim.
Sounds pretty tasty, and according to the Houston Chronicle you can expect to find pre-made versions and recipe mixes springing up soon all over the US. Or, read on if you want to mix up your own batch.
