Looking for a way to spice up your next party or gathering of friends?
You can’t go wrong with a new spin on the michelada.
The cocktail usually has a mix of Mexican beer, lime, some spices, pepper, and sauces, and then served in a salt-rimmed glass. For the Nixta Michelada, you’ll get a nice kick from the hot sauce, and it’s the perfect way to add a little heat and flavor to your drink menu. Try this cocktail next chance you get, courtesy of Nixta in St. Louis, Missouri.
