Chelada Beer Cocktail

What does a chelada have in it?


Chelada Beer Cocktail is a Mexican beer cocktail using lager beer and lime juice. Mexican beer cocktails called cheladas are made with lime juice and lager beer. Mexican lagers naturally have a pleasant flavour, but the zesty chelada notes elevate them to a new level. A typical Mexican cerveza preparada known as the “Chelada” is essentially a light lager mixed with lime juice and salt. There isn’t any clam juice, tomato juice, sauce, spice, clamato, or tequila used.

What beer is good for Chelada?

Modelo Especial A balanced flavour with a subtle hop profile and a fresh, clean aftertaste. The aroma of Modelo Especial has notes of herb and orange blossom honey. Water, Barley Malt, Non-Malt Cereals, and Hops are the main ingredients of Modelo Especial.

Because it allows the components in a Michelada to fully emerge and surpass the flavour of the beer, this beer is the ideal vehicle for them.
