Servings 2


  • Coarse sea salt for the rim of the glass I used a pink Hawaiian
  • Plenty of ice cubes
  • 2 12-oz. cans Mexican Beer such as Bohemia, Tecate or Corona
  • 6 - 8 limes enough to squeeze into 1/2 C. lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce such as Tabasco or Tapatio.  We used the latter, I believe you should use a heat as strong as your threshold can handle
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Maggi or Soy sauce


  1. In a bowl combine lime juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire and Maggi and whisk well. 

  2. With two chilled glasses take a chunk of the lime and press around the rims. Invert the rims onto a plate containing the sea salt. Add ice cubes to fill about half way into the glasses. 

  3. Next divide the sauce mixture evenly into each glass pouring over the ice. Slowly add the beer so that the thick mixture remains cozy in the bottom of the glass. 

  4. Top the glasses with a slice of lime or maybe even a small chili pepper for a festive look.
