Leyenda’s Michelada

Ivy Mix, Leyenda | Brooklyn, New York

Ivy Mix’s take on the Michelada swaps the tomato base with a citrusy, spicy sangrita. Traditionally taken with a shot of tequila, the sangrita here highlights the origins of this south-of-the-border classic.

  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 2 ounces papaya and carrot sangrita (see Editor's Note)
