A michelada infused with the flavors of chamoy! Chamoyada! Easy recipes, like this michelada are ones that I enjoy often. They are also the recipes that I neglect to add to my blog, why? Lol! Here it is, finally!
Michelada or Bloody Beer???
My first taste of a michelada was a few years ago while visiting my brother, Ismael, in Austin. I was very familiar with bloody mary’s, but bloody beer? Lol! My sister-in-law, Janet’s dad, Gilbert was an excellent bar tender and prepared me my first bloody beer. I loved it! It’s a mild version of a michelada, but still delicious. Thank you Mr. Trevino. I will always remember your charismatic smile and sharp clothes, RIP.
Micheladas Gone Wild!
Have you seen all the ways that micheladas are served these days? It’s a true art form how they strategically pile all those garnishes on top. I was in a rush and didn’t take the time to plan my garnishes too well, lol! When I do, I will share those pictures. Original micheladas were not fancy at all. It consisted of beer, lime, salt, ice and a straw! That version is light and refreshing too.
What Does Michelada Mean?
Mi-chela- elada, My Cold Beer! Makes sense! Growing up, I thought they were referring to a girl named Chela, Lol! What they wanted was a cold beer!
Leave Out The Clamato?
Of course you can leave out the clamato if you prefer. Not sure when the clamato was introduced into the recipe, but I really enjoy it. If you are wondering, clamato doesn’t taste like clams, lol! It’s a lighter version of tomato juice, in my opinion.
I didn’t have to purchase anything special for this recipe, except the cold beer! Clamato last forever in the refrigerator and I always have several bottles of hot sauce to choose from. Up for a challenge(not that big), you could prepare some homemade chamoy and chile lime seasoning.
And Now, Let’s Get To The Recipe Below! Enjoy!
