We love summer, beer and Mexico, and when you put them all together you get the ultimate beer cocktail – the Michelada.

If you’ve never heard of the Michelada, it is the Mexican take on a Bloody Mary, and is one of the most popular Mexican beer cocktails around the globe.

Just like language and traditional dishes, there are many versions of the Michelada, which change from region to region.  We’ve found an authentic Mexican Michelada recipe for you though… so settle into the relaxing part of the summer season with a Mexican beer cocktail that you’ll want to have again and again.

The Aztec Mexican Products and Liquor online store has a fantastic selection of authentic Mexican beers to help you create your own version of this standout Mexican beer cocktail.  Take a spicy beverage break during the peak of summer and deliver a Michelada that your guests or customers will remember for a long time to come.
