Named “The Pig,” this version of a classic Michelada is straightforward and delicious. The bacon salt rim is such a great complement and turns this drink on its nose (or snout!). Dimitri’s Bacon Salt is available for purchase at our shop. Don’t live in NYC? Call Sips & Bites and we’ll ship it to you.
Keep these ingredients on-hand for any brunch or tailgate that may require a break from straight-up beer and bacon-laced goodies. Besides, it’s important to eat…uh, drink your veggies.
