In 2008 Anheuser-Busch and Cadbury Schweppes teamed up to release two Latin themed cerveza preparada in the form of Chelada, featuring Budweiser or Bud Light mixed with Clamato. That right, Bud beer mixed with clam & tomato juice.

The name is derived from the Spanish word “michelada,” which loosely translates to “my cold beer.” More importantly, Budweiser & Clamato Chelada and Bud Light & Clamato Chelada are borne of an authentic Latino recipe, which Anheuser-Busch is been proud to bring to the masses.
