Drink recipe - Michelada

I must admit, I haven't tried this one yet. I keep seeing references to it and loads of people rave about it but so far I've been to much of a chicken.

I normally believe in keeping my beer simple and un-mixed but what if people are onto something here? Has any of you readers tried this, or could someone be cajoled into trying it for me? ;)

I've borrowed the recipe and picture from Saveur magazine, one of the best food magazines out there.

Michelada - Makes 2

Margarita salt or kosher salt
1⁄2 cup fresh lime juice
1 12-oz. bottle light Mexican beer, such as Corona or Pacifico
Worcestershire sauce
Half a lime, cut into wedges

Dip rims of two tall chilled glasses in a saucer of water, shake off excess, then dip moistened rims in a saucer of salt. Fill each glass halfway with ice, then one-third full with lime juice, and top off each with beer. Add 1–2 dashes worcestershire and Tabasco to each. Garnish with lime wedges, if you like.
