Summer Sips: The Michelada

July 17 2008, 1:56 PM
In the June issue of Bon Appetit, the food mag features a recipe for the fiery michelada. This sizzling concoction of beer, Tabasco, lime, and salt is a summer refresher with after-burners. The first sip is cool and refreshing, then the slow burn of Tabasco takes over, leading to another gulp. For a bit of the legend surrounding the thirst-quencher, read our story "Cerveza en Fuego" from last summer. And, if you don't want to mix up a michelada yourself, order one at Mezcal or Tambien.
