1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 2 medium limes), rinds reserved

There are several variations on this beertail, which is based on beer and lime juice. The version here is also known as a Michelada Cubana south of the border. With a flavor that’s sort of a mix between A.1. steak sauce and a Bloody Mary, our beer cocktail is an acquired taste—but one we think worth acquiring.
What to buy:Maggi is a dark liquid seasoning that’s reminiscent of soy sauce but doesn’t contain soy. It can be found at Asian and Latin markets. If you can’t find it, substitute soy sauce.
Game plan: For a slacker solution, go to the store and buy yourself a pack of one of the various cerveza preparadas that are marketed by the big beer companies.
