Strawberry Beer Margaritas

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.

Strawberry Beer Margaritas

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.

NOPE.

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!  :-)
