The Michelada

Yield Serves 4 (serving size: about 7 ounces)
This beer-based Mexican refresher is a good way to kick off your taco night. The tangy, spicy flavors are a perfect match for the smoky, spicy pork and sweet-tart pineapple salsa. Prepare the base ahead, chill, and stir in the beer just before serving. --Julianna Grimes
