3 Drinks for Cinco de Mayo (Recipes)


We tend to think of mixed drinks as something made with liquor — but the michelada, which uses beer as its alcohol, breaks that rule. Hey, you serve lime wedges with Corona — this just takes it to the next level!


Makes one drink.


  • 1 Ice cold dark Mexican beer
  • 2 Lime wedges
  • Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 Cup fresh lime juice
  • 1-2 Dashes hot sauce, like Tabasco or Tapatio
  • 1 dash soy sauce
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce

1. Place salt on a plate. Rub the rim of the glass with lime wedge, and dip glass into salt. Fill glass halfway with ice. Pour lime juice, hot sauce, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Stir with spoon. Top off — slowly! — with beer. Garnish with remaining lime wedge and serve immediately with remaining beer — topping off as you take sips of the drink.

I don't drink, but my husband does. He works at a plant where there are a lot of Mexican people. When they go home, they usually bring him back a bottle of alcohol he has never seen or tried before! Now, he will have a few drink ideas to try! Thanks!
