Summer Beergarita via Olives ‘n’ Wine

Hi! I’m Becky from over at Olives ‘n’ Wine – a blog where I share my passion for keeping a balanced life through eating {mostly} healthy, tasting great wine, staying active, and traveling to new places – and I’m excited to be doing a guest post for Katie today. Smile

I think it is safe to say that we’re in the dog days of summer, also known as my favorite time of year! Early sunrises and late sunsets, backyard summer BBQs and parties on the patio, suntan lines and bike rides with the family. Pure and innocent happiness.

Oh and you can’t forget about the swarms of mosquitos, 20+ days on end of 100 degree temperatures and humidity levels in the 90%s… But let’s forget about those minor nuisances, I’ll take them over the -50 degree temperatures in January any day!

Now, where was I?

Drink 1

Oh yes, summer! Although it is my favorite time of year, it can get VERY hot. Like sweat-inducing, sun-burning, I can’t breathe, I am going to strip all of my clothes off and jump into the pool kinda hot. And that kinda hot calls for…

A beergarita!

Drink 2

Yep, that’s right. Some days all you need is a pool, a warm breeze and a tasty drink in your hand!

My beergarita (inspired by the soon-to-be mama Kristin over at Iowa Girl Eats) offers you the refreshing “ahhhh” of a cold beer along with the tropical, south-of-the-border fun of a margarita! What’s not to love?

Drink 3

Summer Beergarita (Inspired by Iowa Girl Eats)

Serves 1

Ingredients
· 1 – 12 oz. Corona Light bottle
· 1 oz tequila
· 1 oz triple sec
· 1 TBSP frozen limeade
· ½ TBSP Rose’s Lime Juice
· Juice of 1 lime

Directions
Mix all ingredients together in a shaker and stir gently. Do NOT shake or it will explode! Not that I know from experience or anything… Winking smile Pour into your favorite margarita glass, garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!

Drink 4

So, the next time you host a BBQ or a pool party or just need a drink to cool down after mowing the lawn, try out my beergarita. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

What is your favorite summer cocktail or mocktail? And your favorite season? Summer, yes? Winking smile

  11. I was first introduced to the beergarita about 4 years ago and man alive are those things dangerous. They are so refreshing and sweet and salty and perfect. When I am back to my “normal” self again we will need to celebrate with some of these bad boys!
