Michelada (Mexican beer cocktail)

“If you like things punchy, Mexico’s Michelada beer cocktail is for you. Savory, sour, and spicy, it could be described as a sort of cousin to the Bloody Mary—swapping the tomato juice for hot sauce and the vodka for a Mexican lager (use something like Pacifico, Sol, or Corona). To make the fiery chili salt for the rim, use chili flakes without seeds (Aleppo pepper or gochugaru work well), or if you can get your hands on Mexican Tajin powder, use that instead. Not only is this a great summer beverage, I find it a nice palate cleanser alongside food—so let it grow on you.”
