Notes

 
MEXICAN SPICES: I like to use Tajin Seasoning. You can find tajin in Latin stores or onlineIf you don't have Mexican spices available, you can also rim the glasses with salt.
 
HOT SAUCE: Tabasco sauce is the most traditional hot sauce used in micheladas. However, you can use any of your favorite hot sauce brands. 
 
VARIATIONS YOU CAN APPLY TO THIS COCKTAIL RECIPE:
  • Swap pineapple juice for mango juice.
  • Swap the Mexican spices with chili powder
  • Add more hot sauce to make it spicier
