Frozen Cherry Beer-Rita

Nothing beats a frozen drink in the summer time, so I blended up a Frozen Cherry Beer-Rita for you tonight! These drinks are show stoppers at a party!

A while back my wife bought this cherry pitter gadget. You put a cherry in, squeeze, and then the pit comes out. And cherry juice goes everywhere. I mean everywhere. I would make the kids go outside if they were going to use it.

Her argument was that they were little and she didn’t want them to swallow the pit…OK, I get that. So no cherries for little kids. How about strawberries then?

Luckily, this Frozen Cherry Beer-Rita only uses cherries for garnish and only cherry brandy in the drink.

First you make up a batch of frozen cherry margaritas – just add all your booze to your blender and add a couple of cups of ice then blend.

You could drink these Cherry Margaritas right now, or take it another step and make it a beer-rita!

Pour some of the frozen margarita into a tall glass or a margarita glass. Any high glass will work, the important thing here is the ratio…

Only fill the glass 3/4 full, leaving room for your beer to be dumped on top. I do mean dumped…you literally tip the bottle of beer over into your margarita and start drinking.

I used the small sized beer bottles for these Beer-Rita’s and they worked out perfectly!
