We met up with the crew at Deadend Worldwide in Salinas, CA, to show us how they are mixing up fresh and easy micheladas using 805 Cerveza. Juan and Jesus have shown us how their quick and simple micheladas keep them refreshed after cruise nights, car shows, and lay days around the garage.

805 Cerveza is perfect because it already has a hint of lime in it.

A michelada is a prepared beer done in a traditional Mexican style. The sour and spice changes the dynamic of the beer completely and leads to a refreshing flavorful mixture. Here’s how Deadend keeps their micheladas quick and refreshing:

  1. Rim a glass with Tajin or spices
  2. Pour in 12oz of 805 Cerveza
  3. Squeeze one whole lime into the beer
  4. Mix in 4oz-5oz of tomato cocktail juice
  5. Top with hot sauce to your liking

Add toppings or keep them quick and easy for days in the garage or at the car show. We washed ours down with some killer carne asada tacos. As Juan and Jesus explained, there’s no right way to make a michelada as it’s all about what tastes good to you and your crew.

There’s nothing better than hanging out, eating tacos and drinking a good michelada.
