This past weekend we decided to give the tallboy of Tecatè Michelada Diablo we had in our kegerator a try. Steven got it from a coworker/friend’s mom (since he always recommends beers for her) and we thought Sunday was just about the best day to do it.
We rimmed 2 pilsner glasses with lime juice and Tajin seasoning (a must if you can find it) and put a couple dashes of Worcestershire and Cholula in each ice filled glass. From there we filled each glass with the michelada mix and added a lime wedge for good measure.
If you are expecting a Bloody Mary…this is not the drink for you. I mean, obviously it’s a Michelada…not a bloody…which means no hard alcohol (unless you add it). The mix itself is Tecatè beer and tomato juice with added flavors of salt, spices, and lime. On its own it’s pretty give or take, but when you add Worcestershire, hot sauce, the tasty rim, and a lime it definitely takes the whole drink up a notch (or two). You could add in any sort of variety of flavors/spices/sauces to this drink…and you could dress it up like a bloody too if you want! No Madisonian would ever turn down an added cheese and beef stick (if they do you most definitely shouldn’t be friends with them anymore. And if they are family, disown them…jk…but really, you don’t need that kind of toxicity in your life.).
I wouldn’t say this will be my Summer go-to drink going forward, but it is certainly quite refreshing on a warm Summer day…if you are a fan of light beer and tomato juice.
If this ends up not being your thing, no worries, there are plenty of other delicious drinks out there to quench your thirst. I’d recommend the Grapefruit Margarita I posted a little while back.
Happy Summer Friends!
