Sel et poudre de chili

RECIPE – Cocktail: Michelada con Clamato Especial

This is a classic Mexican cocktail: Clamato mixed with cheap beer. I’ve added my own twist to the classic, of course.

And, hey, this place is confidential, isn’t it? Ok. Here’s a secret: I like recipe Michelada con Clamato on a Sunday, at noon, when the sun’s out and it’s warm. Be careful, though!

One more tip: in Mexico City, the usual rimmer for the glass is Chamoy, a tamarind-based kind of paste. If you can find it, try it! It’s delicious!

  • 1 Pint Glass
  • 1 Bar Spoon
  • 1-2 Ice Cubes
  • 1 Lime Squeezer (Optional)


  • 710 ml cheap beer
  • 30 ml Vodka (You can make it 60 or 90 ml…)
  • 300 ml Clamato®
  • 5 ml Soy Sauce
  • 5 ml Worcestershire Sauce
  • 5 ml Chili Powder (I use this chili powder instead of Tajin, but if you have the original ingredient, it's 10 times better!)
  • 5 ml Salt
  • 15 ml Lime Juice (The equivalent of ½ lime)
  • 1 dash of hot sauce (To taste)
  • 1 thin wheel of Salami (Optional)
  • 1 (cooked) piece of bacon (Optional)


  • First, squeeze the juice out of your half-lime in a bowl. Then, take a pint glass and rub the rim of the glass with the inside of your half-lime. Put the chili powder and salt in a dish, and mix. Dip the now wet edge of your pint glass in the chili-salt mix to coat the rim of your glass.
  • Then, add a pinch of the salt-chili mix in your glass. Add the ice cubes, soy, Worcestershire, lime juice, vodka, Clamato and hot sauce and stir.
  • Once you're done stirring, crack the beer open, tilt the glass and pour very slowly. The gas in the beer will react and foam a lot, so be careful when you pour.
  • Once the recipe Michelada con Clamato is completed, garnish with a piece of bacon and/or a salami wheel and a slice of lime.
