For a basic michelada:
1 beer mug, chilled
Kosher or coarse sea salt, for coating the rim of the glass
1 lime wedge
Ice cubes (optional)
2-3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1 beer, preferably Mexican, chilled
Additional ingredients for a michelada especial:
Dash of hot sauce like Tabasco, Cholula or Valentina (optional)
Dash of a salty sauce like soy sauce, Worcestershire or Maggi Sauce (optional)
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper (optional)
Pinch of kosher or coarse sea salt (optional)
Pour a layer of salt onto a small plate. Rub the rim of a chilled beer mug with the lime wedge and dip the rim gently into the salt to coat. Place the ice cubes, if using, into the mug. If making a basic michelada, add the lime juice on top of the ice, then pour in the beer.
If making a michelada especial, salt the rim of a chilled beer mug as directed above, then place the optional ingredients, to taste, into the mug. Stir the mixture lightly then pour in the beer.
