These Smoky Cucumber Micheladas are such a refreshing cocktail made with tomato juice, lime juice, fresh cucumber juice, chipotle sauce for smokiness, and your favorite beer! They're rimmed in a little salt and chili powder, and they're an amazing addition to a game day appetizer spread or Mexican food!
Make the salty chili rim. On a small plate, mix together the coarse salt and chili powder. Moisten the edge of your glass with a lime wedge and rim in the chili salt. Fill the glass with crushed ice. Add the tomato juice, cucumber juice, lime juice, adobo sauce, soy sauce, and hot sauce and stir to combine. Top with the beer and stir to combine. Garnish with a cucumber spear and lime wedges. Serve!
To make the cucumber juice, add 1 large seedless cucumber, chopped, to a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth into a bowl and press all of the juice out. I usually press down in the strainer with the back of a spoon or just squeeze it out if I’m using cheesecloth!
