The Naughty Baptist

In which I'm inspired by Rachael Ray

I'm not a big Rachael Ray fan. I'm not even a small one, really. However, Amber and I are big Jimmy Fallon fans. So when she was on his show the other night we watched it.

She made a cocktail from her new book, which I had never heard of: a michelada. It involved hot sauce and Dos Equis, so of course I had to try it. It came out pretty well. Different, but good.

I checked several recipes, but none seemed like the one she made. So I winged it. One thing I'd change: most the recipes I read said to not use a dark beer, so I went with Dos Equis Lager. It looked to me like Rachael Ray used the Ambar version, and I think that would be better. Your mileage may vary.

As I said, I winged it, but this is what I did:

I can't belivee I'm going to say it but, I may have to order her book for the cocktails at least.
