"What is Michelada?"
Michelada is a beverage enjoyed by Mexicans and Latin Americans. The word 'Michelada' is a Spanish word that combines "mi" (my), "chela" (beer) with "ada" for "helada" (cold) which means - my cold beer.
In the earlier days, only lime, salt and ice were the only ingredients needed to make a michelada. As time goes by, other spices and sauces were then added to the original recipe to flavour the drink.
NOTE: For non alcoholic version, simply simply replace beer with soda.
