If you're looking to spice up your signature drink, add micheladas to your menu! A michelada is a Mexican beer drink that has several variations. Micheladas typically include Mexican beer, hot sauce, lime juice, and salt, and may also be made with tomato or clamato juice, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, celery salt, or cayenne pepper. The drink is savory, spicy, and unexpected; we suggest serving it as the signature cocktail at a casual backyard wedding or a hip brunch wedding.
