It’s called the Bohemia Michelada, and it’s a perfectly acceptable substitute for you guys who want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a cerveza, rather than tequila. (Not a bad idea considering it’s a Wednesday, and fighting off a tequila hangover isn’t the best way to spend tomorrow at the office.)
All you need is a bottle of Bohemia beer from Mexico, some lime, salt, Worcestershire and hot sauce. Sombrero optional.
And if you’re looking for something to dip your chips in, check out the easy recipe for Bohemia Beer Hot Cheese and Salsa Dip, below. It’s Ole-licious.
A lime and a small plateful of coarse (Kosher) salt
1/4 cup fresh lime juice About 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, or to taste
About 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce (such as Frontera Red Pepper), or to taste
1 12-ounce Bohemia beer
Cut the lime in half. Rub one half over the rim of a large (16-ounce) beer mug to moisten it. Invert the mug and dip lightly in the salt.
Fill the mug half full with ice, then add the lime juice, Worcestershire and hot sauce. Fill the mug with beer, stir just enough to combine everything, then enjoy.
