Actually not as bad as it sounds

budweiser-clamato-chelada… but pretty close. I was at some friends’ house the other night, and for some reason they had this. It’s Bud Chelada, a mix of Budweiser and Clamato. What’s Clamato? It’s a mix of tomato juice and clam juice.

To be fair, I don’t really like tomato juice — V8, for instance — in the first place. Clam juice, while admittedly good, is most delicious in pastas or soups — at least not by itself. And I couldn’t really taste the beer.

But after a sip, I could see why some people might like it. I didn’t, but I get it. Apparently it’s a thing in the Southwest and Mexico.
