Easy Beer Ritas!!

Standard

beer ritas

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!!!
 
Ingredients:
 
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.  
 
P.S.  
 
I love mine served with jalapeno stuffed olives!!!
