Friday Cocktail: Chelada

On a hot summer evening, there are few pleasures as good (and simple) as a refreshing chelada cocktail with fish tacos. We love the smoky hit of an ancho chili salt rim, but adding lime zest to coarse salt is another delicious option.


  • 2 tablespoons ancho chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • lime wedge
  • juice of one large lime
  • 12 ounces light beer, such as Modela Especial


1. Mix together chili powder, salt and sugar, and place on a small plate.

2. Rub the lime wedge around the rim of a tall glass, reserving lime wedge. Fill glass with ice and add lime juice.

3. Top with light beer and garnish with the reserved lime wedge.
