Cherry Beer-Rita

Nothing beats a frozen drink in the summer time, so I blended up Cherry Beer-Rita for you tonight! These drinks are show stoppers so get ready for the crowd to go wild!

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. Not a gadget that will appear here on my site – because it’s dumb.

Put the cherry in your mouth, eat around the pit and spit it out. No mess.

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 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!

So get rid of the cherry-pitting gadgets and blend up plenty of these Cherry Beer-Rita’s for cocktail hour tonight!
