Hey there you pretty bird, I’ve got some alcohol for you.
I figured that I should probably contribute something towards Super Bowl aka February Thanksgiving aka how many nachos can I fit in my face. For me the day isn’t too exciting because I don’t watch any sports. I’m that guy that watches for the commercials and Beyonce. I sort of Caroline Manzo all of it, and I’m just like in a dark corner by myself eating a pile of melted cheese and drinking a beergarita.
The beergarita is a special drink because most recipes involve a ton of tequila and a good amount of frozen lime-aid concentrate. I’m no go on the lime-aid and I promise to never use that same container to measure out tequila. My top needs to stay on.
This version of the beergarita is much simpler with just three ingredients: Beer (obvs), fresh lime juice, and agave. You’re getting the best of a couple worlds in just one glass. Now I know what you’re thinking: ‘Billy shame on you for trashing up beer’ to which I reply ‘I could give two shits.’ This is definitely something you should try with a couple of plain untouched beers so people have the option of what they want to use to intoxicate themselves. It’s your party, do whatever.
Now, let’s get to mixing.
for a couple of servings combine 1 ice cold 12oz beer ( I like Pacifico or even a good wheat beer like Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat), .75oz (1 1/2T) light agave, and 1oz (2T) fresh lime juice (from about 1 lime).
Serve over ice (because you’re scandalous) with a lime wedge.
If you wanted to put together a giant pitcher of these because yes, then combine 4 ice cold beers with 1.5oz (6T) light agave and 4oz (1/2c) fresh squeezed lime juice.
THEORETICALLY: If you have tiny bebe hands that can’t juice citrus you could use a good quality margarita mix in place of the agave lime mixture.
