What is a michelada?
Micheladas have always been a favorite of mine. We often get them at our favorite Mexican restaurant, as well as enjoy them at home. Recently I shared a recipe for how to make a simple homemade michelada, but this Bloody Mary Michelada takes it to a whole new level. A michelada generally consists of a tomato drink, beer, lime and spices.
Clamato Tomato Cocktail is the most common to mix with beer, and creates the best flavor for a michelada. It’s an authentic tomato cocktail that spices up all your parties and get-togethers. Enjoy it on its own or mixed with other ingredients to make unique cocktails. It can even be used in marinades or sauces.
While basic micheladas are tasty on their own, you’ll be amazed by this Bloody Mary Michelada with bacon swizzle stick garnish. First, rim the edge of a glass with chili salt seasoning. Start with a Clamato, vodka and lime juice base over ice. Mix in remaining ingredients and beer, then garnish with celery and a bacon swizzle stick.
What are bacon swizzle sticks?
This lovely culinary creation is simply twisted bacon cooked to form a chewy, crispy stick to garnish your homemade Bloody Mary Michelada. With Clamato and just a few ingredients, including bacon of course, you’ll have a unique michelada recipe for your next soccer gathering or party.

Great recipe, thanks for sharing. I’ll have to try this one out when I get the chance. I’ve been so swamped these days that I’ve only been able to order mine online.
You’re welcome and hope you like it Stacy!
