Beer before liquor, never been sicker. Liquor before beer, nothing to fear. Beer AND liquor together… yummy goodness!
Disagree with me on that? Well let me introduce you to some yummy goodness to show you what I mean.
My first beer + liquor was Mule Monday. (Also know as $#*@ Tuesday.)
What’s a mule you ask? (Besides the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse.) A classic mule (Moscow Mule) is vodka, ginger beer and lime. (I like a touch a simple syrup to sweeten it just a bit.) There are variations of it, though, that trade the vodka for bourbon, gin, Jägermeister (gross!), or Tequila. Believe it or not, my favorite is probably gin… and I’m not a gin fan.
This mixture of liquor and ginger beer is one delicious, refreshing drink that’ll sneak up on you fast as you gobble them up.
Then you have the beer margarita…
Yeahhhh… that’s good stuff. There are many different variations on this delightful drink… but generally its a light beer (preferably a Mexican beer, of course), tequila and limeade. It’s pretty simple, really, but its a delicious take on the standard drink of a Mexican restaurant. (Oh and my husband and I like to have Margarita Monday with friends… Mondays are a good day to drink apparently.)
Now, a popular eating establishment has introduced beer can cocktails this summer. I won’t name the establishment since they aren’t paying me for the advertising… but its a color and a bird in the name.
The Coors Light one actually tastes a lot like a mule, because it uses ginger vodka and lemonade. (See what they did there?) And the Blue Moon has clementine vodka, orange juice and lime juice so its actually a lot like a Blue Moon with an orange in it. Which I liked. I’ve also had Blue Moon topped with Grand Marnier. Yeah, once you do that, a plain ole orange is hard to settle for… Try a Landshark or Corona with white tequila and lime juice. Yum.
Oh there are lots of ways to mix liquor and beer into a yummy goodness drink. Boilermaker… Irish Car Bomb… etc. But these are a few of my favorites. Especially for summer.
What are your favorites??
