What is a Michelada?

A michelada is a type of cerveza preparada  (prepared beer), a traditional Mexican beverage that mixes assorted spices, peppers, lemon and lime, with a beer. Don Chelada is a pioneering innovator of michelada products that blend fresh, flavorful ingredients!



Think of a Bloody Mary with Beer 

Sometimes touted as the "Mexican Bloody Mary," the michelada is lighter than its vodka-fueled cousin. The spicy beer beverage has become increasingly popular over the last few years, with many people searching for the perfect michelada recipe online. The search is over! Don Chelada blends products in San Antonio, Texas with inspiration so you can quickly make a delicious beverage.

How to Make a Great Michelada 

Use a Don Chelada Cup

  • Take the lid off your cup with its Mega Moist Rim.
  • Empty the enclosed spice packet into the cup.
  • Get ready to pour in your favorite beer, slowly, so the suds settle.
  • Fill the cup with 24 ounces of beer.
  • Let your filled Michelada Cup sit for a minute. Enjoy!
