Cerveza preparada (Spanish pronunciation: [θeɾˈβesa pɾepaˈɾaða], prepared beer) is a Mexican drink of beer mixed with tomato juice, hot sauce, or salsa.

The drink dates back to the 1940s, when it became popular in Mexico.[citation needed]

The basic recipe is tomato juice (sometimes Clamato or V8 Vegetable Juice) mixed with beer and the juice of half a lime in an ice-cold, salt-rimmed pint glass. The beer is added by pouring it from high above the glass so that the contents will mix properly.
