A glorious Mexican invention that I'm proud to say I celebrate every weekend in the summer. This two part cocktail is as simple as it is delicious.

Why is it called Michelada?

The term “michelada” comes from the Spanish word “chela,” which is slang for beer. “helada” also means “cold” in Spanish, and with “mi” translating to mine, it all just kinda came together. not sure where the tomato juice came into play but I know that depending on where you are, the michelada could also replace the tomato juice with lemon juice.
