How about making a simple drink with a Mexican Flare? How about making a Michelada? What if you did it on July 12th. The day that this drink is celebrated.
What is A Michelada?
Well, it starts with a tasty cocktail called Clamato® juice. It is a unique and tasty cocktail made with tomato juice and a blend of spices that livens the senses, and it was created in California back in 1969. Now, Clamato® is an indispensable ingredient used in many beverages, including the traditional Michelada.
I know you want to learn more. Who wouldn’t? I bet you can taste it now. It is said that the Michelada made its first appearance in Mexicali at the “Bar los V-tarros” where, the story claims, it was very common to experiment with drink mixes in an effort to find the perfect antidote for the hot, sultry climate. Witnesses claim that Mr. Camacho, the owner of “Bar los V-tarros,” and his good friend created the now very popular Michelada, a mix of Clamato® with beer, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, lime, and pepper. The recipe became so popular, it quickly spread from Mexicali … to the world, and in the U.S. we celebrate this iconic drink on National Michelada Day on July 12th!
Now you know. If you win on jeopardy you owe me a Michelada!
Best Mexican Michelada Recipe

4 cups Mexican lager beer (Modelo is typical)
1 tsp. hot sauce, more or less to taste
1 ½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. soy sauce
Juice of one lime
Tajín seasoning for the rim
1. Take about a tablespoon of Tajín (or salt) and sprinkle it on a small plate. We need a well-coated rim but you can use what you like. Then rub a slice of lime around the rim of the glass. Turn the glass upside down on the plate and press the rim in the Tajín to salt the rim.
2. Mix Clamato®, lager (beer), lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and soy sauce in a large pitcher.
