white trash margaritas

In guest on October 19, 2009 at 1:56 pm

i can’t even tell you how excited i am to present my first cocktail blog here at icf. today’s guest blogger jumped at the challenge and i don’t think you’ll be disappointed with her results! if anyone knows a good cocktail, it’s her! i would also like to mention that if some of the pictures are blurry, she had already been drinking for several hours when she mixed up this particular batch…

just when you thought icf couldn’t get any better, she starts featuring cocktail recipes!  i am very pleased to make a guest appearance on icf to share my favorite recipe for one of my favorite fun and festive drinks…MARGARITAS!

these ‘ritas are affectionately referred to as “white trash margaritas,” because the ingredient that makes them so special is a bottle of beer.  does the beer component really make it deserving of the title white trash?  i don’t know… i really don’t care … i just drink it.

i was first introduced to the white trash margarita at a baby shower of all places.  as the host of the party poured me one, she proudly explained that this would be one of the best margaritas i will ever have and she would be happy to give me the recipe.  ever skeptical… i took a sip, was hooked and promptly asked for the ingredient list.  now, i like tequila and i like beer… but tequila and beer mixed together? it’s quite magical.

to start, you will need a pitcher, ice cubes, tequila, any variety of lemon-lime soda, one bottle of mexican beer, and one can of frozen concentrate limeade.

fill the pitcher half way with ice cubes and empty the can of limeade into the pitcher.  use the empty limeade can to measure out equal parts tequila, lemon-lime soda, and beer.  ue sure to fill the limeade can to the brim with each ingredient. you wouldn’t want to short change yourself on the tequila or beer… or lemon-lime soda i guess.

mix together and enjoy!

this white trash margarita is the perfect companion to your mexican fiesta, football party, quiet evening at home… or even a baby shower!
