Earlier this month, Remezcla teamed up with Clamato to throw an LA pool party in tribute to our favorite beer cocktail: the michelada. With origins in the city of San Luís Potosí, the spicy, salty beer concoction has often been dubbed the “Mexican Bloody Mary” – although it is much lighter and more refreshing than its gringo cousin (and better at curing hangovers, too).

In LA, micheladas have basically become a religion – no brunch menu is complete without them. And while they sound relatively simple to make, crafting a perfect michelada is an art. On October 1st, we gathered together a bunch of friends for a lesson in how to master the michelada, and for a day of lounging, eating, and drinking by the pool. Featuring delicious eats, live musical performances by MLKMN, Jesse Baez and Raven Felix, and a Michelada throwdown that pitted two of LA’s leading mixologists against each other in a quest to create the best Clamato Michelada, this was #MicheladaMood.
