Sometimes, being a forgetful, scatterbrained blonde has its advantages.
Hell to the yeah.
Don’t judge, because my forgetfulness just scored y’all another awesome beer margarita that you make in a pitcher.
You see, I was invited to go to an awesome dinner a few weeks ago. I was asked to bring some stuff to make cocktails with… because apparently that’s one of my specialties.
I’ll take it.
Of course, one of the cocktails I planned to mix was my Cherry Beer Margaritas. Let me note that where I was going, there wasn’t a liquor or grocery store for MILES and MILES. So I had to have my crap together before I went.
And I did. (Or so I thought). When I got well over halfway there, I realized I forgot to grab the limeade concentrate out of the freezer and almost FREAKED OUT. Luckily, I was close to a small community grocery store. I cringed while hoping that they had limeade concentrate.
The only fruit concentrate I could find was frozen strawberry daiquiri mixer. I thought to myself, “I can pull this crap off, I’ll just make Strawberry Beer Margaritas!”. So I purchased the strawberry daiquiri mixer and a 2 liter bottle of lemon lime soda.
I added lime juice (about 1/3 cup) to the pitcher of strawberry daiquiri concentrate, light beer, tequila and lemon-lime soda. It came out to be a pitcher of perfect Strawberry Beergaritas.
I’ve always learned that the greatest ideas and recipes result in being forced to compromise and “think outside of the box”. Actually, I “thought outside of the can” in this instance. Cheers to an awesome “blonde moment”… You’re welcome!
