COCKTAILS: Mexico City Michelada

Updated: Jan 17

The traditional Michelada (It's NOT a beer cocktail; it's a Michelada!). Make it with your favorite light lager. We’re partial to Natural Villain, a garage-style lager brewed in collaboration with Twin Peaks, a mash-up of the Chicago band’s favorite Mexican lagers. —INGRAIN, Fall/Winter 2019
