The Michelada

More of a doctored beer than a beer cocktail, the michelada features lime, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and beer, served on ice. This version nails that tart, savory, spicy mix. Consider it a blueprint for experimentation.

Kosher salt
1 lime
Worcestershire sauce
Mexican hot sauce
1 bottle of Mexican lager

Salt the rim. Add ice, the juice of the lime, a shake of Worcestershire sauce, as much hot sauce as you want, and top with beer.
