Introduction: Hot Cocktail - Michelada - With Hot Sauce and Chili Powder

About: 24 years old, Paramedic and actually on my first year of Physiotherapy. I consider myself a very imaginative person, that likes to do new things and learn everything I could.

A very special drink for his "burning" taste. A mixture of bitter beer, hot sauce and lemon make this drink an excellent accompaniment to grilled meats. This drink is more from Mexican culture, but I like to drink it to (I'm from Colombia), but with some little less ingredients, keeping it simple and tasty.

Step 1: Ingredients

Michelada have few ingredients, mostly sauces like Hot Sauce, Worcestershire Sauce and others. I like to do it just with lemon and hot sauce, to keep it simple but good to go with grilled meats and fast foods.


  • Your preferred beer (But goes better with bitter beers)
  • Lemon (and lemon Juice)
  • Hot sauce
  • Chili Powder
  • Salt

Step 2: Mixing It

Moisten rim of glass with lemon. In a plate, mix a pinch of salt and chili powder, pass your glass over this mix to stick it over the edge. Add the hot sauce and lemon juice, at your taste. Finally pour the beer in the glass.

It's Done! Very simple, isn't?

As I said before, this drink goes well with grilled meats and fast foods, like my favorite recipe: Hot Dogs and Potatoes - Salchipapas
