Cocktails! An absolute must for the Fourth of July – here are a few of my favorites…
These go by many names, the least offensive is Beer-garitas. The inexpensive bulk way of making these cocktails is perfect for a party.
1 container frozen lemonade concentrate
1 container frozen limeade concentrate
12 12oz beers
1/5th of Triple Sec
Mix it all together. Don’t dilute the concentrate – the beer will do that. Serve over ice with a garnish of lime.
Martha’s Bing Cherry Mojitos – cherries are starting to come into season (not quite yet in Washington) and would be great this weekend!
And don’t forget a few non-alcholic options to re-hydrate!
Lemonade and Cucumber water
Freeze watermelon and use it as ice cubes in a giant pitcher of water.
