Summer, we’re ready for you.


You can’t go wrong with la clásica.

Your favorite beer + tomato juice, a few secret sauces y un chingo de limón. Sas. ??


But there are a ton of other options, like this cocochelada.

It’s as if a michelada and a piña colada had a baby.


Or miches for those of us who can’t pick between food or drinks…

Because no one should ever have to pick.


Or between a bloody mary and a miche.

If you have a hard time deciding between a michelada and a bloody mary, Long Beach-based Micho & Mary mix (which was voted second-best Michelada-Bloody Mary mix, according to the brand’s Insta page) has a two-for-one combo you will want to try with your Tapatio and guacamole appetizer. Yummm!


Here’s this when a paleta alone isn’t enough to keep us cool.?

Because sometimes a paleta alone just doesn’t cut it.


There’s also this paleta that literally melts into a michelada.

Yep, it’s a paleta made of mix that you let sit in beer and the michelada is made as you watch it melt. Whoever created this is a heaven-sent genius.


Even non-oyster lovers drool over these michelada shooters.

Some people can’t stand the slimy texture of an oyster, but even those people wouldn’t be able to turn this shooter down. This mariscos restaurant in La Puente, Calif., is making oysters way more delicious with these tiny michelada shooters topped with salted rims and cucumber garnishes and a raw oyster.


And c’mon, these Mexican candy micheladas are what our dreams are made of!

Forget bougie shrimp cocktails served in a martini glass.

Those are such a joke compared to this. I’m never going back to that basic version.


These over-the-top chamoy and tamarindo micheladas already have us smacking our lips.

Others do flasks, but I’ll take one of these magical little bottles.

Some of the geniuses behind the iconic Oaxacan restaurant Guelaguetza created a michelada mix you can take on the go. Yasss!


And aside from a taco truck, this is the only other car I need in my life.

Come by @ramirezliquor and pick up your bottle of @ilovemicheladas for tonight's fight!

Craft beer snobs, this one’s for you.

Who says craft beer can’t get into the michelada game? Angel City is ready to be the MVP with its Srirachelada, a kegged beer cocktail mixed up to the brim with agave syrup, lime juice, pickled banana pepper juice, Clamato and you guessed it – Sriracha sauce.

I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the greatest beer invention in history, in my opinion.

Let’s all raise a ? to micheladas!

Is it 5 o'clock yet? ?:@small_fry42

If you’re tragically not in the know, micheladas are a beer-based cocktail that mix a Mexican beer (like Modelo Especial or Pacifico) with Clamato tomato juice, lime juice, hot sauce, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and a rim of salt or Tajín. And if you really know your shit, you’ll add tasty garnishes like saladitos, olives, cucumber, mango and/or a Tamaroca banderilla candy.

My mouth is watering just typing this out.

Who doesn’t love a drink that also includes snacks??

And if micheladas weren’t perfect enough, they also cure hangovers!

Tomato juice, spicy foods and hair of the dog are all individually proven as trusty hangover cures. Together they’re unstoppable, forming a Justice League of heroic hangover fighters. Micheladas are the heroes we all need, and definitely want.

But there are imposters out there.

A lot of places out there will try to pass off some bunk-ass fake micheladas on their menu. One bar once had the audacity to hand me their blasphemous excuse of a michelada that consisted of basic V8 tomato juice and nothing else in it. Like wtf! To make matters worse, they rimmed it with powder pico de gallo seasoning and tried to claim it was Tajín.

At first I thought this had to be a joke. Surely no one would try to pass this sad, unflavored beer water as a delicious michelada.

But they did. They actually did.

No, bitch. No.

I survived though, thankfully. And I learned then that when you find that perfect michelada, with it’s delicate blend of salt and spice and, of course beer, it’s like finding true love.
