  • 1 bottle Mexican beer , chilled (I like Dos Equis here and Indio in Mexico)
  • 1-2 pieces limes , juiced
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2-3 cubes ice


  1. Pour lime juice in a shallow bowl and dip glass rim in. Pour kosher salt in a shallow bowl and dip glass rim in, making sure to evenly coat the entire rim with salt. Gently shake off excess. Fill glass halfway with ice and pour lime juice over. Tilt glass and gently pour beer in. Serve.

Recipe Notes

I like my cheladas heavy on the lime juice but O prefers them lighter. I use 2 limes; he uses 1. You know you!
