  1. In Mexico it's common (okay, not common, but not unheard-of either) to mix beer and Clamato. Not being particularly fond of Bud or Clamato, though, I'll give this one a miss.

      Budweiser Clamato should not in any way be associated with, or detract from a good Michelada!!!

        Nothing against a good michelada. Cerveza, jugo de tomate, salsa Maggi, a squeeze of limon, maybe a shake of salsa picante, and we're good to go. But Clamato--no, thanks.

          I would never use Clamato or Tomato Juice... I make mine with Clam Juice & Picante from scratch, as well as Limon etc.,... bomb.

            You might be the only person who could persuade me to try one of these things.

    2. A friend of mine buys the beer for a local liquor store. She had me try it blind. It is the most foul liquid I have ever tasted.

        1. In the southwest they have these small cans of Snappy Tom(Not Clamato!) to add some flavor, body and nutrition to a Coors draft and other SW ilk. I think this is just a commercial rip off a long standing SW drinkiing style. Pop a top again and add a Snappy Tom instead!

            I love Snappy Tom in a Bloody Mary. I just think it's kind of a weird way for a brewery to try and give some flavor to their beer.

          2. It's called a michelada. it's a fairly common drink in Mexico. In the southern US people have been drinking "bloody beers"(same minus the clam juice) for ages. I think the Bud Micheladas aren't bad.not the same as fresh made but not bad at all.

              Man, as a recovering New Mexican, that was my supper many a Friday night when I was in my 20's. Thank God for Bar Nuts!
