Home Eat & Drink Mary’s Recipe: Michelada

Mary’s Recipe: Michelada


The parallel trends of craft beer and artisanal cocktails have crossed streams: “Hoptails,” cocktails using beer as a mixer, are the latest twist on libations. Combining the personality of a cocktail with the food-friendliness of beer results in a beverage that’s eminitely drinkable. As craft beers continue to rise in popularity, bartenders are increasingly concocting beer cocktails in Utah and nationwide.


This hoptail is famous as a summer quaffer. Here’s our version of the Michelada, a Mexican beer and tomato cocktail.


Juice of 1/2 medium lime
Mexican beer, such as Corona
1 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. tomato juice
1 tsp. hot sauce, such as Tabasco
1/2 tsp. Maggi or soy sauce
Freshly ground black pepper
Smoked salt, for rimming the glasses
Green onion brush, lime wheel and cherry tomato for garnish.


Mix lime juice, Worcestershire and hot sauce together. Rub the rim of a glass with cut lime, then dip in smoked salt. Fill glass with ice, pour in tomato mixture and fill glass with beer. Garnish.

Here's one from our upcoming Jan/Feb issue out on stands in just a few days. We hope you’ll grab a copy and enjoy every moment of reading it.⁠

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.” — Mary Brown Malouf. Ooops. Herman Mellville.
