While you may be familiar with the Michelada, a beer-based cocktail from Mexico, you've probably never had the sassier Michelada Cubana. Danny Mena, chef-owner of New York's Hecho en Dumbo , stopped in to show us how to make this simple variation of a popular hair-of-the-dog drink, which calls for the umami-boosting ingredient known as Maggi seasoning . Watch the segment, then get the recipe.
Bohemia beer is suggested as the Mexican lager, however Pacifico, Dos Equis, Negra Modela, or Tecate can substitute.
1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
1 ounce Valentina Salsa Picante 
4 dashes Maggi Jugo or Maggi seasoning 
2 dashes worcestershire sauce 
1 bottle Mexican lager, such as Bohemia
- Rim a collins glass with salt and fill it halfway with ice. Add the lime juice, Salsa Picante, Maggi, and worcestershire sauce, in order, into the glass; top off with lager.
- Stir until well mixed; garnish with a lime wheel and sip stick. Serve the drink with the balance of the bottled beer.
