Cali-Chelada

Cali-Chelada from a Birdseye View

Today I’m sharing a drink that I’m certain will be on your list of Super Bowl must-haves.  The traditional Mexican Chelada gets Cali-fied with micro veggie kebabs and grilled asparagus.  It’s like serving appetizers and cocktails all in one bowl!

Let your guests choose their own hors d’oeuvres by setting up a Chelada bar of crisp green veggies and colorful skewers of edible goodness to dunk into their drink. It’s a fun and entertaining way to liven up this classic cocktail for the big game.

Here is how you mix it up:

Ingredients: Salt, lime, tomato and Chile cocktail, beer, Worcestershire sauce

  • Can of Snap-E-Tom
  • Bottle of any California lager
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Lime
  • Salt for rim (optional)
  • Various veggies for the Chelada Bar (I used black and green olives stuffed with blue cheese, grape tomatoes, celery, and grilled asparagus)

Rubbing a lime along the rim of the glass, then salting the rim

Use a lime around the rim of the glass (you can use any shape glass) so the salt will adhere. Sea salt works best!

Add in the Snap-e-Tom to glass over ice

Add some ice to the glass and pour about 6 oz. of  Snap-E-Tom over the ice. Add a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce.

Pouring beer into the glass, just below the salted rim

Pour in the beer until it reaches the top of the glass, just below the salt rim.
