Beergaritas

What a week (and a couple days) – lots of beer, lots of great new recipes to add to the list.  Let’s check out what the beer scoop was:

And what better way to end beer week than with a cocktail made with beer?  I’m pretty sure there is no better way.  This is a play on those delicious Blueberry Beergaritas that we made a few months ago – oh boy were they good.    But this Beergarita is straight and to the point – no frills – no fruits – just tequila and beer working together in perfect harmony, with a few other friends along to help :)

Beergaritas

Beergaritas, plain and simple

INGREDIENTS
(yields 4 drinks)

3/4 cup (4 shots) of your favorite tequila
(da-da-da-da-DA-da-DA-da)

3/4 cup skinny limeade
(recipe below)

3/4 cup orange juice

2 – 12oz. bottles of light beer
(preferably a Corona style)

INGREDIENTS FOR LIMEADE

1/2 cup splenda (or truvia)

1.5 cups water

1 cup fresh lime juice

1)  To make limeade: in a large saucepan, combine water and splenda until splenda is dissolved (won’t take long).  Remove from heat and let cool before adding the lime juice in.  You can freeze it for ‘frozen’ beergaritas – I personally like mine on the rocks :)

2) Combine tequila, limeade, OJ and a couple ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and shake a couple times until they’re completely mixed.  Pour into a pitcher and then add the beer before serving.  You can always adjust the beer taste as you see fit.

 Hope you guys enjoyed beer week – and that you enjoy your weekend even more!
