Luchador Recipe

Luchador
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: Under 5 mins | Active Time: | Makes: 1 drink

This spicy beer cocktail will give you the strength to execute the high-flying moves and pile drives of the greatest luchadores (Mexican wrestlers), or at least the strength to watch them on TV.

What to buy: Clamato is a spicy tomato drink spiked with clam juice. Look for it in the juice aisle of the grocery store or in Latin markets.

Game plan: Keep a beer mug nice and frosty in your freezer for when you get the urge for an ice-cold Luchador.
