Micheladas

Peden + Munk
Serve these refreshing beer coolers over ice with lime and some salt -- then it's just a matter of adding as many dashes of hot sauce as you can take.

Ingredients
 
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce, more as needed 
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice 
  • Coarse salt 
  • 8 12-ounce bottles Mexican lager 
  • Lime wedges
Procedure

Combine 2 teaspoons hot sauce and lime juice in a shallow bowl. Spread out salt on a saucer. Dip rim of find glasses into hot sauce mixture and then into salt to lightly coat. Fill glasses with ice and pour a bottle of lager into each. Squeeze in lime juice from wedges, add more hot sauce to taste.
