Michelada

Michelada is a cocktail from mexico made with beer and lime. The name comes from the slang word "Chela" meaning "Beer" and "helada" meaning iced cold, so it literally translates "My iced cold beer". It is very easy to make and it's perfect for spring and summer barbecues.



Ingredients for 1 glass

1 light beer (mexican beer preferably but any light will do)
1 lime, squeezed
a few drops of Tabasco sauce
a few drops of Worcestershire sauce
ice
a pint glass



Place the glass(es) in the freezer at least 30 minutes before preparing. Place coarse salt in a plate, and using the lime cut in half, rim the glass with enough salt. Add ice and squeeze the lime. Pour the beer  and season with the drops of Tabasco and Worcestershire to taste. Mix with a spoon and enjoy.
