Michelada and Gallo Cerveza: Guatemala’s Traditional Drinks and Beer

After four years of living in Guatemala, I discovered my new favorite drink – with it’s main ingredient as beer!

Michelada, baby!

What is it?

It’s literally a Bloody Mary but with beer. What a super idea!

My main love for beer comes whenever visiting a country. I love to taste the different beers. But, I’m not a big beer drinker.

When I first arrived to Guatemala I loved to drink Gallo Cerveza – the national Guatemala Beer.

However, the novelty of plain beer wore off, so Micheladas spark up that love once again. You should try the Michelada from Colombia too!

  1. I have to admit that I mostly drank rum while in Central America. I do love a good Bloody Mary so maybe I should have tried this.

    1. I’m a huge bloody mary lover too. I prefer mine with vodka though, and my mojitos with rum 🙂
