For rim:

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon lime zest
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder

For Michelada:

  • 2 ounces lime juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce (I used Cholula)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 ounces beer (Mexican recommended, I used Corona)


  • Combine salt, zest, and chili powder in small bowl. Use leftover lime to rub the edge of the glass to moisten. Roll in salt mixture to coat the rim of the glass. Fill glass with ice.

  • Fill with lime juice, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Add beer. If entire beer doesn't fit in glass, serve along side Michelada and continue adding as you make room in the glass. Stir gently if desired.
