Grilling with Adam Rapoport: Micheladas

May 23, 2013

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.

Love Micheladas -- bloody Marys could learn a thing or two from them.
