Happy Cinco de Mayo! | Key Lime Beergaritas

Beergaritas | Once Upon a Recipe

Happy (almost) Cinco de Mayo, friends! I am in the midst of a busy weekend with friends, but wanted to pop in real quick to share a holiday worthy cocktail with you. I first spotted these beergaritas on Iowa Girl Eats last summer. They reminded me a little bit of one of my favorite drinks to order at a local Mexican restaurant, called a Bulldog. A Bulldog is basically a blended margarita with a bottle of beer turned upside down into it – as you drink the margarita, the beer slowly continues to empty, providing the perfect balance of margarita and beer.

It’s highly scientific. šŸ˜‰

Anyways, a beergarita is more beer-heavy and is mixed with the flavors of a margarita – tequila, triple sec, and lime. A beergarita is totally slurp-worthy and perfect for summer, or a Cinco de Mayo celebration! Just beware, these go down pretty darn easy and pack more of a punch than you might expect.

Happy weekend friends!
