Michelada Beer Cocktail

Serves 2
This beer-based cocktail, spiced with chipotle peppers, is a refreshing, man-friendly drink.


  • 1 lime, zested and cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium tomato juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • Ice
  • 1 12-ounce bottle lager beer


  1. Stir together the lime zest and salt in a small saucer. Cut lime in half and rub cut side over the rim of 2 pint glasses. Dip the rims in the lime salt to coat.
