It’s been a long day, at the end of a long week. Frankly, it’s been a long few weeks. The heat is here, summer is upon us, and this girl wants a margarita. This girl NEEDS a margarita. Just something citrusy and tangy, tart and sweet, on the rocks with salt. Something that says relax, have a drink, enjoy the season.
Turns out, I’m not the only pregnant gal to feel this urge. My friend Molly posted her craving for a virgin margarita on her Facebook and a friend of hers chimed in with this fantastic, super simple recipe for a non-alcoholic beer margarita. That was this afternoon. Hours later I sent Scott to Kroger to pick up the ingredients and I’m sipping one as I type this. Okay, the tequila is obviously missing, but the thought of tequila really makes me want to hurl, so all the better. Even for all it’s faults (like missing the ALCOHOL), it’s fantastic.
Non-alcoholic beer (like O’douls)
In a cup, add crushed ice, top with a little bit of limeade, and then about double that amount of beer. These are rough calculations here, based on what I figured out tastes best to me. Play with the ratio to see what works best for you.
Rim your glass with a lime wedge, dip in a shallow plate of salt, pour your margarita in, top with more fresh lime juice, enjoy!
Cheers! Hope you’re having a great weekend.
