A well mixed Margarita is one of my favourite cocktails! After our holiday to the Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun I loved recreating them at home which resulted in this post – The Perfect Margarita Recipe – and I’ve just about got this zesty little number down to a tee.
As the football season is now upon us I’ve decided to give the traditional tipple a bit of a twist using a popular drink of football lovers alike – Lager! So if you’re not a fan of straight up beer or just prefer to drink something a little daintier when that big match is on then The Lagerita Cocktail could be for you. It also works great for a girl’s night out when the boys are down the pub or transfixed on the telly watching Jeff Stelling read out a load of numbers and yell excitedly at a screen you can’t even see – seriously i’ll never understand Soccer Saturday…ever!
What You’ll Need
1 Shot Good Quality Tequila (I used Don Julio Blanco)
1/2 Shot Cointreau
1 1/2 Lime
1 Bottle of Corona or Modelo
1. Fill a shaker full of ice and pour in your Tequila and Cointreau
2. Squeeze in the juice of one and a half limes and SHAKE IT UP!
3. Strain into a cocktail glass and top with beer
4. Garnish with a wedge of lime and enjoy!
The result is a fizzy, zesty, super-charged lager that tastes amazing at any time of the year, football or not…although it is a great excuse to sip a beer fueled cocktail!
