  • 4 tbsp sea salt
  • juice of 6 limes



    The same shape, but smaller than…

  • Mexican lager (we used Corona)
  • Tabasco sauce or Worcestershire sauce, to serve (optional)


  1. Pour 4 tbsp sea salt onto a plate. Dip 4 long glasses into the juice of 6 limes, then into the salt, so you get a little salt rim around the top of the glass. Put some ice into each glass, then divide the lime juice between the glasses and top up with lager. Finish with a dash of Tabasco or Worcestershire sauce if you like.

Missing a teaspoon of chilli powder and black pepper to the salt mixture for an authentic Michelada.
