A Michelada is a popular Mexican cocktail or cerveza preparada (prepared beer) that became popular in Mexico in the 40s when people started mixing beer with hot sauce or salsa. Michelada is prepared differently in various parts of Mexico. This is just one variation.
* Salt (any coarse salt will do)
* Cubed ice
* 1 lime, juiced
* 1 12 oz. can or bottle Mexican beer
* 1/2 tsp. hot sauce of choice, e.g. Tabasco (optional)
* 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire, Maggi or soy sauce
* 3 oz of Clamato
Cut one lime in half. Use one half of the lime to juice the rim. Make sure the glass is cold beforehand, so the salt sticks to it. Place the rim of the glass in your salt tray. Gently, but firmly, press the rim into the salt, turning the glass so the salt builds up on the rim.Fill the empty salted glass with ice. Put each half of the lime into the hand-juicer and squeeze so that the juice is over ice. Add Clamato and sauces to taste — a couple of drops will usually do the trick. Pour the beer (any of the better Mexican varieties are the best) into the glass, over the ice, lime juice, and sauces. Stir well with a long spoon.

The Margarita is an alcoholic beverage originating from Mexico. Like many popular beverages the cocktail favorite has several origin stories. One story maintains that In 1948 Margarita Sames created the drink in Acapulco, Mexico using her two favorite spirits: Cointreau and tequila. Another popular myth states that restaurant owner Danny Herrera, of the Rancho La Gloria near Tijuana, Mexico, mixed and named this cocktail for the allergy-ridden American actress Marjorie King. King was reportedly allergic to every spirit except tequila and Margarita is Spanish for Marjorie.
