Serve these refreshing beer coolers over ice with lime and some salt – then it’s just a matter of adding as many dashes of hot sauce as you can take. —Adam Rapoport

What You'll Need
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce, more as needed
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • Coarse salt
  • eight 12-ounce bottles Mexican lager
  • Lime wedges
  1. Combine 2 teaspoons hot sauce and lime juice in a shallow bowl.
  2. Spread out salt on a saucer. Dip rim of find glasses into hot sauce mixture and then into salt to lightly coat.
  3. Fill glasses with ice and pour a bottle of lager into each. Squeeze in lime juice from wedges, add more hot sauce to taste.

I like this a lot better than the tomato juice based version. A nice Modelo, some Tapatio hot sauce, salt and lime (and a couple of ice cubes), and I've got myself the perfect drink for a hot day. Thanks for sharing!
