• Yield: Makes 8

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.



  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce, more as needed 

  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice 

  • Coarse salt 

  • 8 12-ounce bottles Mexican lager 

  • Lime wedges




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.
