July 12th Is National Michelada Day.

There are several variations of this beer-based Mexican cocktail. Our version of a Michelada calls for a rich tomato passata (puree).

That’s what DeLallo used in this recipe. Instead of hot sauce, they heat things up with an oil from spicy Calabrian chili peppers.

Top with an ice-cold beer and you have the perfect drink for any hot day.

Food Trivia: A beer cocktail is called a beertail, for short.

    2. CREATE the tomato mixture by combining Passata, Worcestershire sauce, chili pepper oil, and lime juice in a large measuring cup or small pitcher. Pour the tomato mixture into the prepared glass.

    3. TOP with beer until the glass is full. Stir gently.

    4. NOTCH the lime wedge on the rim of the glass, or serve it on the side.
