Working Man's Bloody Mary

Budweiser and Clamato.

What the hell is wrong with people?
My idiot clone is drinking that.
He claims it is a real drink and Google is seeming to back him up.

All I gotta say is, gross.

Budweiser markets this vile concoction as a "chelada", and adds insult to injury by charging about $8.00 for a four pack (four pack? can you believe that?).

I only know this because a couple weeks ago, I needed to do something nice for the head mechanic at the LBS, and I made the mistake of asking him what his favorite beer was. Needless to say, I went to a store where I was pretty sure I wouldn't run in to anyone I knew to buy them.

This concoction comes pre-mixed?

And I though the drinks I made at my college dorm parties were bad. This drops bad drinks to a whole new level.

By comparison, that probably wouldn't be as bad. I personally prefer gin with my Windex, but YMMV

Whiskey and worcestershire sauce.

Or vodka and ketchup shooters.

At risk of insulting anyone on here who might just love an icy cold chelada at the end of a hard day, i found it amusing that the can has to include a warning in large letters not to shake it before opening

Interesting highlights from a review of the Budweiser Chelada from a blog that pops up when you Google "chelada":


After a fair amount of stalling, I cracked it open and stared into the tiny hole. Dear. God. It’s pink. At this point I realized drinking from the can is probably a good thing. I definitely didn’t want to see the full appearance of this cocktail or stir up the bits of clam snot sediment that have, no doubt, settled to the bottom.
The brew, if you can call it that, had the aroma of a Bloody Mary as smelled in a seafood market. The fishy, spicy tomato essence mixes with a slight sweetness from Bud Light’s signature adjuncts.
My initial reaction to the first sip — something is very wrong here on so many levels. It’s an unhappy marriage of offensive flavors. Very much like a Bloody Mary, only dreadfully salty and a little fishy. Mouthfeel is macro domestic fizzy, tomato creamy, and watery all at the same time. I’ve never tasted clam ass, but if I ever do, I am 100% confident that it will taste like Bud Light Chelada. Pass the mouth bleach, please; my work here is done.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with mixing light beer and Clamato. It’s regional and authentic, a celebration of cultural tradition. But premixing, therein lies the beer/custom crime. The novelty is ruined, reducing the drink to a can of mass produced, crappy, fishy, tomato beer.

Brilliant marketing coup, but two wrongs do not make a right.

If I were to set out to improve the taste of a Budweiser by mixing it with another liquid, I'd start out with something that actually tastes good....like perhaps a decent beer.

I'm thinking a 99/1 ratio might do it.

I thought that's what Budweiser did anyway.

So have any of you folks who are talking **** about this drink actually tried it? You remind me of the people at work who wrinkle their noses at the thought of eating Indian food but have never even stepped into an Indian restaurant.

I don't particularly like beer, and I dislike tomato juice. What makes you think I might like this? I won't drink a standard one either.

I'll stick with Bourbon.

I don't like Budweiser, I don't like Clamato.

I also don't need to stick my pecker into a fan to know it'd hurt.
