Michelada + Chicken Sandwich

Posted by johngl

In the realm of summertime libations and subsequent hangover “cures” lies the Michelada, a concoction I’d not experienced, let alone prepared, until very recently. All that I wanted was a drink to go with a sandwich.

Dos Micheladas

Dare I borrow those now infamous words: Mission Accomplished!

It looks like a Bloody Mary. It acts like one, too. I’m told that many in Mexico believe it to have restorative powers. Especially after a night of heavy tequila consumption.

Michelada Ingredients

See, that bowl up front? No, I mean really look at it!

Kosher salt and chili powder

That’s a 50/50 blend of kosher salt and chili powder. The next time I make this drink, I’m going to add some smoked paprika.

Anyway, set the bowl aside once you get the stuff mixed and prepare the rest.

For two tall ones, you will need:

2 12oz bottles of a Mexican Lager. I used Tecate.
4 oz V8, tomato juice, or Clamato (if you are particularly brave)
2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon jalapeno juice (from a jar of sliced jalapenos)
two dashes of dark soy sauce

Take the V8, lime juice, Worcestershire, soy & hot sauces, and jalapeno juice and put it in a cocktail shaker over a bunch of ice.

Michelada mix

Take a chunk of lime and run it around the edge of the glasses, then rim the glasses with the salt/chili powder blend. Reserve some lime slices for a garnish.

Strain and pour equal amounts of the red sauce into a glass. Add beer.

Enjoy with your chicken, bacon, avocado, cheese, and tomato sandwich!

  1. I have yet to try a bloody mary – can you believe that?! Um, pretty sure I’d like your spicy version though.

    We smoked a ham shank yesterday – so good! I am going to try to make an asian bbq sauce with the leftovers to make a bahn mi style sammie with pickled carrots, daikon radish and jalapenos. In my mind it turns out good – I’ll let you know!

    • No, I cannot believe that you’ve never ever had a Bloody Mary.

      Did you catch a buzz on that ham shank Biz? 🙂

      Du-u-de…ham shank!
