Michelada: A fresh summer drink for Riviera Nayarit

In México, the gastronomic industry is in constant renewal. Summer has already begun and we must be prepared to face it. I have taken the time to find an ideal drink for this season: la michelada. I will share the recipe to you in case you don’t have the opportunity to travel to Riviera Nayarit. Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit offers this beverage in a unique style of preparation.

There are three ways to prepare a michelada: the first one is called the traditional, which has a sour flavor with a refreshing touch; the second one is the Cuba, better known as “chelada”, it offers a more complex mix of flavors, since it uses three different sauces (Maggi, Tabasco and Worcestershire); finally, the third one is Cielo Rojo, whose aroma is intense because of the clam juice (Clamato).

Traditional Michelada

Lemon juice (1)

Beer of your choice (1 bottle)

Salt to taste

Frosted jar with salt

Chelada or Cuban Michelada

Lemon juice (1)

Beer of your choice (1 bottle)

½ tablespoon Tabasco, Maggi, and Worcestershire sauce

Salt and black pepper to taste

Frosted jar with salt

Cielo Rojo

Lemon juice (1)

Beer of your choice (1 bottle)

½ tablespoon Tabasco, Maggi, and Worcestershire sauce

89 ml Clamato

Salt and black pepper to taste

Frosted jar with salt

Preparation

Frost the jar with a slice of pineapple or lemon, then dip the rim of the glass into salt or Tajín. Add ice, lemon juice and salt. If you are preparing the Cuban, add the three different sauces or if you are going for the Cielo Rojo, just add the Clamato with all the other ingredients.

If it is your first time tasting it, I recommend you to try the traditional michelada – it is the best way to start. At lunchtime, drink it while eating some seafood like aguachile, shrimp cocktails, ceviche, etc. On the other hand, it complements tacos very well too.

On the beach, pool, parties or restaurants, the michelada can’t be missed this summer in Riviera Nayarit.
