The Perfect Chelada Recipe

If you like beer and you want a little heat, spice up your next beer by turning it into a delicious Mambo Chelada. What is Mambo Chelada, you ask? A Chelada is Mambo’s take on the traditional “beer cocktail” from Mexico that combines ice cold beer, fresh lime juice, and a blend of spices. The result is a refreshing drink for a hot day or brunch after a night out.
