The name is a combination of "clam" and "tomato". It is also referred to colloquially as "clamato juice". Clamato is used primarily as a mix for alcoholic beverages and it is popular for this in Mexico and.. Canada - but curiously much less so in the United States (outside of Canadian-American and Mexican-American communities). Clamato is also added to beer in various beer cocktails (called Micheladas in Mexico) or to a drink named Caesar, which is essentially a Bloody Mary with Clamato instead of tomato juice.Mexican Michelada recipe:12 ounces light Mexican beer; for instance: Corona/Sol/ Tecate/Modelo1 can of Clamato1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice rinds reserved1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce1 tablespoon soy sauce (or Maggi sauce)2 teaspoons hot sauce (like El Yucateco Red Hot Sauce)Ice cubes&Coarse Salt and Tajin seasoning for rimming the glass
Prepare salt and Tajin (or chili powder) in a shallow dish; rub the rims of the glasses with the lime wedges (or use the reserved lime rinds) and dip them into the spicy salt mixture. Fill the glasses with ice. Pour the beer, Clamato and sauces (adjust amount to your liking) to the glasses and mix well. Garnish with a lime wedge.
