Since Bel Air Cantina opened in Wauwatosa last year, I’ve become a somewhat frequent customer, especially on Tuesdays and Thursdays. You really can’t beat $2 tacos and beer!

One thing that has always caught my eye on the menu is the Michelada. Described on the menu as “an authentic, tantalizing blend of Valentina, tabasco, lime, worcestershire sauce and seasoning served over ice with a salted rim – just add your choice of beer,” thought it sounded perhaps like the Mexican version of a Bloody Mary.

I could not have been more wrong. This tasted like someone poured hot sauce in a beer. My mouth was on fire and the weird carbonation combo was too much for me to take. Sadly, most of this beverage—and my $6—was wasted.

Lesson learned: A Michelada is NOT a Bloody Mary.
