Chelada Recipe

There’s nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold chelada on a hot summer day. Featuring a salt-rimmed glass, a crisp Mexican cerveza, a splash of lime juice, and a pinch of salt, it’s absolute perfection! Serve it on its own, or pair it with snacks like mushroom aguachile, sopes, tacos, and more.


Run a lime wedge along the rim of a chilled glass, or dip it in a shallow dish of lime juice. Then, dip the rim into a shallow dish filled with salt. Coarse salt adds a better texture and overall flavor, so try to avoid table salt here.


Squeeze the lime juice directly into the glass, then add a pinch of salt and stir the two together. If your glass and beer aren’t very cold, you can add ice at this point if you’d like to make it more refreshing.


Slowly pour in the beer, stopping well before it reaches the rim because it will fizz up. Stir the drink gently and garnish your chelada with an extra lime wedge.
