Ingredients

  • 1 12 ounce beer
  • 2 teaspoons Valentina hot sauce
  • juice of 1 lime (approx. 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon horseradish
  • splash of adobo sauce (optional)
  • salt
  • chipotle powder

Instructions

  • Add a thin layer of salt to small plate along with dashes of chipotle powder.  Combine well. 
  • Rub a lime wedge around the rim of the glass and dredge it in the salt.  (I usually only rub the lime around half of the glass.) 
  • Add 2 teaspoons of hot sauce (Valentina) to the glass, along with the juice of 1 lime, 1/4 teaspoon horseradish sauce, freshly cracked black pepper, and a splash of adobo sauce (optional).
  • Combine well and serve immediately. 

Notes

Tomato juice is commonly used in Micheladas.  I prefer them without the tomato juice but if you have some on hand it's worth adding a splash to see how your palate reacts.
