New Cocktail Mix Review: Mucho Macho Michelada

A couple of weeks ago we were contacted via Twitter by a company who has a new product called Mucho Macho Michelada Mix. To my delight, a large envelope arrived in the mail shortly after containing 8 packages of drink mix along with some really cool marketing materials. It’s my pleasure to share our first ever cocktail-mix review with you.

What is a Michelada?

A Michelada is a traditional Mexican drink, similar to the Bloody Mary we drink here in America. A traditional Michelada contains a slew of ingredients and is not your simple cocktail:

TRADITIONAL MICHELADA RECIPE
TRADITIONAL MICHELADA
  • Salt, for rimming the glasses
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Ice
  • 1 1/2 cups light Mexican beer, such as Corona
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 1 teaspoon Maggi or soy sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper, for garnish

However, the Michelada mix from Mucho Macho contains all of the ingredients needed to make the drink in powder form in a small pouch – genius. All you have to do is mix the contents of the small pouch with a cold Mexican beer (such as Corona), stir a few times and it’s ready to drink! The ingredients are: chilli pepper blend, salt, sugar, citric acid, corn syrup solids, spices, oil of lime, garlic powder, soybean oil, and no more than 2% silicon dioxide as an anticaking agent.

So how does it taste?

In two words – It’s Good! But since I had never had a real Michelada before, I had nothing to base the taste on so I called a Mexican friend of mine over to be my taste-test expert. While I found the drink slightly too spicy for my taste in cocktails, my friend loved it! He said he puts chili and lime on almost all Mexican food he eats so the taste was a familiar combination and delicious when mixed with the ice cold beer. He quickly finished his drink and thanks to the easy-to-mix mix packed from Mucho Macho, making a 2nd round of drinks took only seconds!

We love to see new companies grow in popularity so please request Mucho Macho Michelada Mix at your local liquor store or bar – Gracias!

Bonus: Mucho Macho Michelada mix is much more than just a drink mix.  You can use it to spice up your sour cream dip, guacamole, fish, shrimp, salad, soup, enchiladas, chicken wings, tacos, hamburgers – just about anything that needs a little “MUCHO”!

Note: With the rising popularity of Michelada cocktails in the US, the major beer companies are jumping on board as well. Miller Brewing Company produces Miller Chill which is a “Chelada-style light lager with a hint of salt and lime”.  Going a different route, Anheuser-Busch is manufacturing Budweiser Chelada and Bud Light Chelada as a combination of lager, clamato, lime juice, and salt. Tecate also now makes a Michelada flavored with lime and spices.
