It's Beergarita O'Clock At The Horseshoe Bay Resort
Who's thirsty? It's time for another installment of our Summer Cocktails series. All summer long we'll profile fun new summer drinks served at hotels around the world. Got one we should know about? Send us the recipe with a photo of the drink. Otherwise, enjoy and @reply us when you're wasted!
Ah, summer drinking. The only time it isn't totally awesome is in when you can't decide if you want a beer or a cocktail. You could throw back both in quick succession—or you could maximize both time and booze and order a Beergarita at the Horseshoe Bay Resort in Texas.
We're pretty sure there's some rule about not mixing beer and liquor but to hell with it! It's hot! We want a cool refreshing Miller Light but we need that shot of tequila to remind us it's Friday. Let's do this.
The folks at the Horseshoe say their signature drink "is like a taste of Texas". Here's how to make it:
Horseshoe Bay Resort's Beergarita
· 1 ¼ oz gold tequila
· ½ can Miller Lite
· 6 oz sweet & sour
· lime juice for rimming
· salt for rimming
· lime wedge for garnish
Rim a chilled pint glass with lime juice followed by salt. Fill with ice. Add tequila, Miller Lite and sweet & sour to taste. Stir and garnish with the lime wedge. Get bombed.
If perhaps you've had some straight tequila shots already and would rather video instruction than reading pesky instructions, you can see the Beergarita being made by a Horseshoe Bay Resort bartender here.
