You will need

Step 1 Squeeze the lime Squeeze the juice from the lime half and then rub the lime around the rim of the glass.
Step 2 Flavor the glass Dip the edge of the glass in margarita salt. Set the glass down in an upright position.
Step 3 Make the spice mix Whisk together one splash of Tabasco sauce, two splashes of Worcestershire sauce, one splash of soy sauce and a pinch of black pepper in a small bowl.
Step 4 Pour beer into spice mix Pour the beer into the spice mix and mix thoroughly with the whisk.
Pour the beer slowly – the salt in the spice mix will make the beer foam more than usual.
Step 5 Prepare the michelada Pour the beer and spice mix into the salted margarita glass.
In El Salvador, the michelada is often made with tomato juice.
Step 6 Garnish Garnish the michelada with lime wedges. Now, enjoy your well- deserved cocktail!
