Mexican Beer Marinade

Spiced Sour Cream


Mexican Beer Marinade

  1. In a glass dish or a large sealable plastic bag, combine the beer, lime juice, soy sauce, garlic and red pepper flakes. Add the drumsticks and coat well with the marinade. Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

Spiced Sour Cream

  1. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high. Oil the grate.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium. Grill the chicken for about 10 minutes on each side, or until the meat easily falls off the bone. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with spiced sour cream and corn on the cob.


Try this marinade with pork chops or chicken breasts, too.


  1. Recipe was fine - nothing "wow". Easy enough to prepare and make...just not enough of flavour. The beer evaporated as expected, and the soy / garlic was just ok.
