The Best Micheladas in Managua
It didn't happen right away, but I've grown to love micheladas. This refreshing drink, which apparently originated in Mexico, has become popular in Nicaragua and you can now find it in lots of bars and restaurants around the country. Of all the micheladas I've tried, nothing has beaten the ones they make at Mexican restaurant Andele on the Carretera Sur. I haven't been able to figure out their exact recipe (though don't think I haven't tried to replicate it at home!), but it's a mixture of lemon juice, beer (I like Victoria Frost), tabasco sauce, steak sauce, and probably some other ingredient I'm missing, served in a salt-rimmed glass. At Andele you get a luxuriously giant, chilled, ice-filled glass that makes you feel like you're away on a resort holiday.
