Jack-A-Roe Offline
We enjoyed a few of these at BC's over the Thanksgiving holiday. (And did need them!) Am wondering if Ernie would part with a recipe for the "base" they prepare to add to the Belekin over ice? Even a list of ingredients so that we could experiment. I know it would never taste as good as one drank sitting en palapa at BC's but it would sure bring back great memories!

Thanks, Bev and John

Totally agree - BC's are the best!! None of the "traditional" website recipe are even close - for one thing they don't call for Marie Sharps!
I watched and wrote down ingredients as Ernie made them once. I have the list at home and will try to remember to PM it to you.

Yummmmmmmm! smile
I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?

When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.

Similar to a Bloody Mary with Beer replacing the Vodka and Tomato Juice.

Do NOT try the Mexican one with Maggi. Had that in Chet, it's awful.

Simon, what's Maggi? (I could look it up, but I'm feeling lazy! laugh )
there's no tomato juice in a michelada - and Janie, you really have to do something about that persecution complex, girl! All I was saying was the online recipes for a "traditional" michelada don't have the same ingredients as the ones made in Belize. The Mexican version is different. Plus, I know of a couple of things you do very well... wink laugh

And a "chelada" is simply beer, ice, salt, and lots of lime juice. Right?

Depends where you're at in Mexico, too...sometimes a "michelada" is made like a "chelada" and vice-a-vera.

At least that's what I've personall experienced.
