Recently during a recent trip to Cozumel, Mexico, we ordered 2 beers and were given a plate with limes, salt and chile molido. Coincidentally, a friend of ours had mentioned Micheladas and also serving cerveza (beer) with spices. One can either sprinkle the salt, chile molido, and squeeze lime into the beer directly, or put it all on the rim of the glass. It offers a kicky approach to drinking beer, especially with Mexican food.


From Wikipedia:

A michelada (Spanish pronunciation: [mitʃeˈlaða]) is a Mexican cerveza preparada made with beer, lime juice, and assorted sauces, spices, and peppers.[1] It is served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass.[2] There are numerous variations of this beverage throughout Mexico and Latin America.[1][2]

Some people in Mexico believe micheladas are a good remedy for hangovers.[3][4][5] There are different variations of micheladas; for example, in Mexico City, the most common form is prepared with beer, lime, salt, and particular hot sauces or chile slices. There are several other optional ingredients, such as Maggi sauce, Worcestershire sauce, Chamoy powder, serrano peppers, Camaronazo, Clamato, or slices of orange.
