Sunrise Beer Margaritas
Oh yesssss! Margaritas were one of Rhonda’s very favorite cocktails, so I started brainstorming on what I could create that reminded me of her and that I knew she would LOVE… this is it!
I knew a “sunrise effect” had to be incorporated into this margarita because during her last days, every time I saw a beautiful sunrise I thought of her, snapped a pic on my cell and sent it to her. This one was sent in November 2017.
My friend Tammy and I have nicknamed this our “RhondaRita” so that’s what we’ll always call it!
Not only are these margaritas insanely delicious, they’re a snap to throw together in a pitcher for a crowd. They’re very similar to my Cherry Beer Margaritas. Your simple ingredients are limeade concentrate, light beer, tequila, orange soda and grenadine.
You can cut calories by using diet orange soda, but I really wasn’t concerned with calories when I made this. I rimmed the glasses with an equal mixture of kosher salt and granulated sugar.
Cheers to Rhonda’s beautiful life and I hope you enjoy these as much as me and my friends have!
