If you are looking to get a lot for your money, traveling in Mexico is always a great choice. Not only can the lodging be very affordable and often very comfortable, but you can also enjoy really abundant meals for very little money. Just buying a taco or two often means getting all kinds of salsas and sides to go with your dishes. Eating is truly fun in Mexico because you’ll often be pleasantly surprised with tasty extras when you order.
But even though this is true nearly everywhere in Mexico, I was still surprised when I ordered a Michelada at Boca del Cielo, an affordable seafood restaurant in Guadalajara, and out came this enormous drink packed with shrimps, fruits, veggies, and spices. It was literally like having an entire salad come with my drink. The drink was delicious. And it turned out it wasn’t even the biggest Michelada they had; they also had Micheladas that came with three levels of fruit and shrimp, stacked on top of each other.
What is a Michelada?
A basic Michelada is made by mixing tomato juice, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and light beer. It’s like a bloody mary but less strong. But just like with bloody marys, bartenders sometimes add all kinds of fruit and snacks to garnish the drink.
So anyway, the next time you are in Mexico and want to experience true abundance, a Michelada could be the way to go. Micheladas aren’t always stacked like at Boca del Cielo, but they usually come with lots of great juice, spices, and cerveza.
