You know the Michelada - a classic Mexican beer cocktail -- has hit mainstream when it's being bottled and sold in mobile trucks. No matter how popular it gets though, I can't imagine ever buying it premade because making it your own means you can customize it to your liking. For me? I like it spicy and smoky like this. 

Ingredients

  • salt

    for rimming glasses

  • ground chipotle chile powder

    for rimming glasses

  • 1/2 teaspoon honey

    plus more for rimming glasses

  • ice
  • 1/4 cup chilled tomato juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 12 ounces amber Mexican beer

    such as Negra Modelo

  • 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons Chipotle hot sauce

    such as Chipotle Tabasco sauce

  • 1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
  • Dash low-sodium soy sauce

    or Maggi seasoning

Instructions

Mix together salt and chile powder in a wide, shallow dish to cover the bottom. Dip the rims of two rocks glasses in the honey then dip in the salt mixture to coat. Fill the glasses with ice and set aside.

Combine the tomato juice, lime juice, beer, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, and soy sauce (or Maggi) in a pitcher and mix to combine. Taste and add more hot sauce or sweetener as desired. Pour into the prepared glasses and serve.
