If you are currently on the hunt for that perfect cocktail for Memorial Day weekend, stop here. I’ve got one for you. This Red Michelada comes from one of my new favorite Mexican hot spots, Puesto. The most basic micheladas are made with beer, hot sauce, lime and salt. Puesto’s Red Michelada is made with a bold blend of beer, fresh tomato, tomato juice, roasted jalapeno, onion, orange juice, lime juice and hot sauce. Finished with a chile-salt rim, this tall glass of Mexican deliciousness is spicy, savory and surprisingly refreshing. Enjoy one of these Red Micheladas grillside while you soak up some gorgeous afternoon sun. I know that’s what I’ll be doing this Memorial Day.
In addition to this spicy libation, the man and I enjoyed a number of other tasty treats at Puesto including a flight of tacos, shrimp ceviche and two frosty paletas. Continue reading for the recipe plus a recap of the entire lunch.
