Tank's Red Beer

Tank's Bloody Mary Red Beer


Claude’s Sauces is celebrating a 40th Anniversary!

Yes, the little family owned business that started in El Paso, Texas by bottling a secret recipe handed down for generations to marinate brisket has grown into a Southwest tradition in kitchens from Texas to Minnesota!

So, we’re celebrating by having a toast. What would you expect from our product Tank’s Bloody Mary Mix? Here’s recipe you’ll enjoy reading as much as watching as we’ll do this picture style as we prepare an easy to make Southwest tradition known as the Tank’s Red Beer!

Also known as Micheladas, these are an easy to make refreshing drink that has a little kick but a world of flavor!

There are many ways to make a Tanks Red Beer or a Tanks Michelada and the ways are as diverse as the people who drink them.

In Canada, they will mix one-part Tanks Bloody Mary Cocktail Mix with 2 parts beer and even throw in an egg. They call that a ‘Red Eye’.

In Texas, you’ll find that making a Tank’s Red Beer starts with how you prepare the glass itself! Take one large glass and leave it in the freezer until cold. Take it out and then rim with a lime wedge followed by inverting the glass into a bowl of Tanks Premium Rimmer Salt. Fill with one-part Tank’s Bloody Mary Cocktail Mix and two-parts your favorite beer.

If you travel to Mexico, you’ll find the Tank’s Michelada starts with a healthy dose of lime juice! One-part lime juice, one-part Tanks Bloody Mary Cocktail Mix and two-parts beer! 

But no matter what country you find yourself in, you will find that making a Tank’s Red Beer is as easy as opening a bottle of Tank’s Bloody Mary Cocktail Mix!
