I’ve always seen Micheladas and been so jealous. I love Corona and think it would be a fantastic ingredient to use in other drink recipes. But I don’t love a Bloody Mary which a Michelada resembles. So when I saw the Chelada recipe in Rachael Ray, I got so excited! It called for just two ingredients and sounded super easy to make. And with Cinco de Mayo coming up, it seemed like the perfect time to try one out.
So I grabbed my lime essential oil and added a few drops! It was perfect! If you don’t have the oil handy, you can also add a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
- 6 oz. Corona or other light Mexican beer
- 3 oz. Limeade
- 1-2 drops lime essential oil (optional, can substitute a squeeze of fresh lime juice)
- Fill a glass with ice.
- Add beer.
- Top with Limeade.
- Add lime essential oil or fresh lime juice to taste.
- Give a gentle stir.
- Consider rimming the glass with salt if you like that sort of thing.
