Bon Appetit's Editor in Chief Adam Rapoport is sharing recipes and tips from his latest, The Grilling Book, all week long. We'll be rolling out his ideal Memorial Day feast -- one dish each day -- from his go-to steak to the drink in his hand.
When you're grilling, you have to keep the drinks simple; you can't be muddling or mixing while you're tending to your steak. For me, that means Micheladas. I love beer on ice in the summer, so this is a great, refreshing take on that. Salt the rim, squeeze a few limes, add some hot sauce -- as much as you can take -- and then drink a bunch of them.
2 teaspoons hot sauce, more as needed
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
Eight 12-ounce bottles Mexican lager
This recipe is just one of more than 350 recipes from The Grilling Book, a comprehensive guide to anything you can make with a grill.
