This Homemade Clamato Michelada is almost too easy to make. When writing the recipe, it felt a bit odd only having a couple lines of directions. I kept thinking of ways to expand it or add more details, but found it unnecessary. That’s the beauty of a homemade Michelada, and all the more reason to enjoy it often this summer.
I’ve been hosting more gatherings with friends thanks to our new patio and grill. A few tasty apps, some drinks and good company is all you need to take advantage of the beautiful weather. One of my favorite ways to enjoy this time is with Micheladas. It’s also a regular for me when I go to Mexican restaurants. The unique flavors creates a simple, refreshing drink that goes with almost any dish.
For the most authentic homemade Michelada, be sure to use Clamato. The combination of savory tomato clam juice with your favorite beer creates the base for this classic drink. Try add-ons to modify the flavor and create your own Michelada. I like to add worcester-style sauce, hot sauce, lime juice and a dash of chili powder.
Growing up, Clamato was a regular commodity in the fridge. I don’t remember a day when there wasn’t one in there. As an adult, I still enjoy it, and with the added benefit of it in a cocktail. You can find Clamato in the juice aisle of Walmart, and for even more summer fun, pair it with one of their deli selections. Some hot wings or a seafood salad would go nicely with your Michelada. Make your pairing unique by adding a unique garnish, such as fresh chives. National Michelada Day is on July 12. Is just around the corner so be sure to celebrate with a simple homemade Michelada and good company. Check out other great Michelada recipes and pairings here.
