Chavela, also referred to as Cerveza Preparada, or Mexican Bloody Mary, is a drink from Mexico that dates back to the 1940’s. Although there are many variations on how to make this beer-based beverage, the one I make is a traditional version made with light beer (preferably Mexican), tomato juice (although many prefer Clamato), fresh lemon juice, hot sauce and my little secret, a splash of tequila on top. —simmerandsauce

In This Recipe
Rub the lemon/lime wedge around the rim of the glass, reserve the wedge for garnish.
Pour some sriracha salt onto a small saucer, dip the rim of the glass into the salt to coat. Set aside.
Add some ice to the glass or alternatively, omit the ice if the beer and tomato juice are already well chilled.
To the prepared glass add the tomato juice, lemon juice and hot sauce and mix well.
Add the beer to fill. Add a splash of tequila to the top.
