The michelada, as consumed in Brownsville, Texas. It varies from place to place, but for this version the glass is rolled in salt and filled with ice and tomato juice, to which the customer adds beer and tobasco sauce according to taste. The hand pouring Tecate beer in the background belongs to Brownsville-born novelist Oscar Casares. The hand pouring Tecate in the foreground is mine. (photo @kainazamaria/NPR)
