Sometimes it’s nice to unwind with something refreshing, especially since the summer time is SO HOT right now! For me, a margarita sure hits the spot. Now, I’m not talking about one of those funky tasting mixes they sell at the store on the liquor isle. I guess slowly over the years I have upgraded to something a little better tasting. Beer Ritas!! So classy, right? Hey, don’t judge! Just try it!!!
What I love about these ritas is that they are super quick, delicious, and can be made without a blender….unless of course, you want them frozen instead of on the rocks. For me, no blender = less dishes = more relaxation time. It’s a win-win!!
These are also quite customize-able. (Is that even a word?) I like to add a little bit of olive juice to mine and make it more like a Mexican Martini, but you could also add Cointreau or Grand Marnier. Go ahead….make it your own!!!
12 oz. frozen limeade
12 oz. water (use the limeade can and fill to the top)
12 oz. tequila of your choice
1 12-oz beer, preferably a light beer
few Tbsp. olive juice (optional)
What to do:
Pour all ingredients into a pitcher. Stir (so difficult, right?) Rim some glasses with salt. Serve over ice.
I love mine served with jalapeno stuffed olives!!!
