If there was a manly version of a Bloody Mary, the Michelada would be it. Made with beer and tomato juice, there’s a bit of heat to keep it interesting.
A Michelada could be considered close to a red eye. A red eye doesn’t have the Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce and the heat is a personal preference.
Maybe you’re wondering why I choose to share a Michelada for brunch week. Well, it’s because I wanted to share, what I consider to be, a more “manly” beverage.
Made with beer, lime juice, assorted sauces, spices, and tomato juice it’s sometimes called a Mexican Bloody Mary.
When I think of brunch cocktails I think of mimosas and Bloody Mary’s, typically drinks popular with women. When I host brunch I like to set up a beverage bar so guests can help themselves.
For the Michelada, I’d offer a variety of Mexican beers, along with bottles of Worchestershire sauce and soy sauce and a bowl of lime wedges. I would have glasses prepped with the cayenne so guests are ready to go.Mix up your brunch cocktails and serve a spicy Michelada. Serve it alongside mimosas and Bloody Mary's on the beverage bar.
