Cocktails & Beverages from Issue 5 – Spring / Summer 2014 – Caravan

Think of a chelada, a lime-doused beer in a salt-rimmed glass, as a michelada, laid bare. Because the beer is center stage, it’s perfectly acceptable to be particular (we happen to prefer ours with Victoria or Modelo). And since our drink has been stripped of its fiery components, we lent all the heat to crunchy jicama wands. Together, they are a match made in summer-snacking heaven.
