  • 1 - 12 fl. oz. (355 mL) lime-flavored hard seltzer
  • 3 fl. oz. (90 mL) tomato juice
  • ¼ fl. oz. (7 mL) Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ fl. oz. (14 mL) hot sauce (e.g., Cholula Hot Sauce)


  1. Mix the beer and hard seltzer together. Stir in the tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Garnish with a lime and coat the rim of the glass with a 2:1 mixture of salt and chili powder, if desired.
