Disclaimer: I was sent beer to try in a few cocktails for my Saturday Spirits series. So Beertails for all! All content is my own!
Last weekend the family and I enjoyed our last camping trip of the season. I happy to say that we tried to take as much advantage of summer as possible by going out and enjoying the great outdoors many weekends this year. Most years we just end up looking back over the Summer and going, “where did it go?!” This year we can safely look back at a bunch of memories of beach trips, camping trips, and more. I am already looking forward to NEXT year’s camping trips and have been filling my Amazon wish list with fun new camp gear I want to buy!
My friends joke that if anyone would bring the bar to a campfire it would be me… and, they aren’t wrong. Last camping trip I made a tasty little bourbon and iced tea sipper. This time around I chose to do a Beergarita!
What is a beergarita you ask? Well, it is a Margarita with BEER in it! Beer can give an extra little something to a classic margarita by adding in more flavor and by giving it some carbonation. I like to make beergaritas when I am making big batches of margaritas.
We made this Beergarita with Tecate Light. While any style of lager will work well, I liked that this is a full flavor lager that reminds me of Mexcio. Check out my favorite way to drink Tecate that I posted WAY back when the blog began.
Makes a pitcher of drinks… or if you are camping like us, this makes 44 oz of cocktail put into a 48oz sealable container. This works to continually mix the cocktail without needing to stir it.
- 1 lager style beer – you’ll use an entire can or bottle (we used Tecate Light)
- 8 oz Tequila
- 8 0z Triple Sec
- 8 oz Simple Syrup
- 2 oz Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice (approximately 2 lemons)
- 3 oz Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice (approximately 2.5 limes)
- 3 oz Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice (approximately 2 oranges)
- Combine all ingredients into a pitcher or sealable container (with a little room)
- Sitr mixture well to combine (or shake)
- Serve over ice in a glass with a salted rim and a squeeze of lime!
