There are tons of ways to make a chelada: some people insist on Clamato juice and Worcestershire sauce as essential ingredients, but I usually find the most simple is the best- just fresh lime juice, beer and salt- it's like a bubbly, refreshing margarita without the hangover. Like if lemonade and beer had a baby. Which means I'll be in great shape for Seis de Mayo.
1/4 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice + 1 wedge of lime
1 light-flavored beer (Corona and Dos Equis work nicely, but Budwieser or Coors will do in a pinch)
What You Do:
1. Run lime wedge around the rim of a pint glass. Put rim into bowl of salt, to rim edge.
2. Fill glass with ice and pour lime juice and beer into the glass (I know it may seem sacreligious to pour beer over ice, but don't knock it til you try it). Garnish with lime wedge.
