CoronaRitas: When Margaritas and Beer Had a Baby
As the Fourth of July quickly approaches and we are all gathering our friends and family over for a backyard party you begin longing for something more than just a beer or basic cocktail. If you're looking to add a little youthfulness back to your barbecue this year get ready to make some classic CoronaRitas.
This easy recipe is inspired by the lifestyle website Fit and Fab Living. While these are incredibly refreshing for summer, beware these drinks will keep you asking for more. Your friends and family will think they are back in college with these drinks in hand. Fit and Fab did the great job of making their own margarita mix because as we all know store bought mixes are very high in sugar and added ingredients. Keep it simple, it’s a classic after all.
1/2 C freshly squeezed lime juice
½ C water
2 Tbsp. honey
1/8 tsp. pure orange extract
1/4 oz Tequila
1\2 oz Triple Sec
Handfuls of ice.
Bottles of Corona
Mix the lime juice, water, honey, and orange extract together to make a low calorie margarita mix. Blend the alcohol and ice with the margarita mixture in a blender until a thick consistency forms. Pour your margarita in a tall glass and carefully turn your Corona or Corona Light upside down in the glass. The tall glass is a great option if you don't have CoronaRita clips for the glass to rest on.
