Thirsty Thursday: Spice Things Up With a Michelada

By: Roberto Ferdman

It's more than just alliteration; it's a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too.

Served throughout Latin American, think of the michelada as a Mexican bloody mary. It's not quite as heavy, and made with beer instead of tomato juice, but still packs the spicy punch we've all learned to love. So pour yourself a glass, or a pitcher if you're with company, and squeeze in a little extra lime juice to make it all the more refreshing.
