I had never had a michelada. I didn’t even know they existed until early this morning. I haven’t had a Bloody Caesar in about six years, they are delicious but since I’m now watching my salt intake, I can’t justify 36% in a cup of clamato.

My friend Zak agreed to be an unlucky participant in my pre-noon beer concoction and curiosity. And it wouldn’t be any michelada, it would be a variant from An Choi Bahn Mi in NYC. Thanks to one tweet from Liv, I decided that today would be my initiation.
@davidcrow Oh, it is lovely, been drinking for years.

I couldn’t find any “33” Export at the LCBO. So I figured that a bottle of my favourite Mill Street Organic Lager.
An Choi, N.Y.C.
Makes one cocktail
1 lime wedge
1 oz. lime juice
Several generous squeezes of Sriracha
3 dashes Maggi sauce
2 jalapeño slices
1 bottle “33” Export beer
Rub the rim of a pint glass with the lime wedge, then coat the rim in kosher salt. Fill the glass with ice and add lime juice, Sriracha, Maggi, and jalapeño. Add beer and garnish with wedge.
These are spice, but they are delicious. I’d do it again anytime.
