A michelada is simply a way to take your favorite lager-style beer in a more savory direction. We like to use Corona or Pacifico for the slightly tropical vibes but your favorite American session beer should work just fine. Tajín is a Mexican spice blend consisting mostly of chili powder, lime, and salt. If you can’t find it, combine equal parts crushed red pepper flake and lime zest and season to taste with salt. Use it to rim glasses for a spicy take on margaritas, micheladas, or sprinkle over mango or fresh watermelon slices.
