For a basic michelada:

1 beer mug, chilled

Kosher or coarse sea salt, for coating the rim of the glass

1 lime wedge

Ice cubes (optional)

2-3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

1 beer, preferably Mexican, chilled

Additional ingredients for a michelada especial:

Dash of hot sauce like Tabasco, Cholula or Valentina (optional)

Dash of a salty sauce like soy sauce, Worcestershire or Maggi Sauce (optional)

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Pinch of kosher or coarse sea salt (optional)

To Prepare

Pour a layer of salt onto a small plate. Rub the rim of a chilled beer mug with the lime wedge and dip the rim gently into the salt to coat. Place the ice cubes, if using, into the mug. If making a basic michelada, add the lime juice on top of the ice, then pour in the beer.

If making a michelada especial, salt the rim of a chilled beer mug as directed above, then place the optional ingredients, to taste, into the mug. Stir the mixture lightly then pour in the beer.
