This week I discovered a drink that I absolutely love! It’s called Clamato from the Dr Pepper Snapple Group – who knew? You can use it to make The Michelada or a Mexican Bloody Mary. Regular Bloody Mary is something that I desperately want to love, but just could never get into because one of the flavors just turns me off. It is odd because I am such a huge tomato lover. I can eat them on their own and pretty much with anything you can think of. It did not logically follow for me. I am excited to share that I finally found a tomato based cocktail that I LOVE….forget love…I’m talking true love!
I’ve included a recipe for a Mexican Michelada in honor of National Michelada Day on July 12 and below you will find my favorite way to drink Clamato®! It is said that the Michelada made its first appearance in Mexicali at the “Bar los V-tarros” where, the story claims, it was very common to experiment with drink mixes in an effort to find the perfect antidote for the hot, sultry climate. Witnesses claim that Mr. Camacho, the owner of “Bar los V-tarros,” and his good friend created the now very popular Michelada, a mix of Clamato® with beer, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, lime, and pepper. The recipe became so popular, it quickly spread from Mexicali … to the world, and in the U.S. we celebrate this iconic drink on National Michelada Day on July 12th!

Michelada Bloody Mary Recipe

Michelada Bloody Mary Cocktail Drink Recipe


4 cups Clamato®
4 cups Mexican lager beer (Modelo is typical)
1 tsp. hot sauce, more or less to taste
1 ½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. soy sauce
Juice of one lime
Tajín seasoning for the rim


Take about a tablespoon of Tajín (or salt) and sprinkle it on a small plate. Rub a slice of lime around the rim of the glass and then press the rim in the Tajín to salt the rim.
Mix Clamato®, lager, lime juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and soy sauce in a large pitcher. If you used Tajín to salt the rim, pour any excess from the plate into the pitcher.
Fill glasses with ice, add Michelada mixture.
Garnish with a slice of lime and enjoy!

Clamato® juice is a unique and tasty cocktail made with tomato juice and a blend of spices that livens the senses, and was created in California back in 1969. Now, Clamato® is an indispensable ingredient used in many beverages, including the traditional Michelada. Check out http://www.clamato.com/en/drinks for more recipe ideas, and http://www.clamato.com/en/about for more information on Clamato®.
