If you've picked up anything from my cocktail posts, it's probably that I really like simple ones. I mean...I really dig them. Hey, mama's busy. I don't have all day to play bartender. Haha!

This take on the Michelada combines the beer lover in me with the Bloody Mary fan. If you've never had a Michelada and aren't sure you like the sound of it, don't write me off quite yet.

Easy Michelada Cocktail Directions:

  1. Simply pour chilled tomato juice in your glass and top with an ice cold beer. 
  2. You can pour them over actual ice if you prefer, but I don't like the way it waters down my drink. That's just my preference. Traditionally, you'll find the Michelada served over ice.

See? This "recipe" is as easy as all the other drinks that I've featured. Maybe I'll get fancy with my cocktail mixin' next time. Maybe...In the meantime, if you'd like to take things a step further, add in the optional ingredients or really go all out and try this recipe from Food 52, which I found in a roundup of Micheladas that Huffington Post put together.
