  • 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


  • In a bowl combine lime juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire and Maggi and whisk well. 
  • 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. 
  • 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. 
  • Top the glasses with a slice of lime or maybe even a small chili pepper for a festive look.
