Raspberry Beergaritas

I hope everyone had a wonderful three-day weekend! I had absolutely zero plans and it was wonderful. Well, I made and shot three recipes, so it was a pretty productive weekend for me! I also didn’t really realize until this weekend just how HOT it is outside already. I feel like it’s so early in the summer (technically it’s still spring, right?), but I didn’t realize just how far into summer we actually are down here in the South.

And you know what goes great with 90 degree weather and summer weekends?

MARGS.

Plus I got a new blender. (A Ninja !!!) You may remember these Strawberry Coconut Margaritas I posted for Cinco de Mayo (ps, how is May almost over already??). Before I made those margs, I thought, “This is probably going to break my blender.” It wasn’t heavy duty or anything, so I figured ice might not be the best thing to put in it. But I really needed those margaritas once I got the idea in my head.

I didn’t buy the blender just for margaritas, but I definitely had to make some once I had it. I went with raspberry this time because it’s one of my favorite margarita flavors. My friend Lindsey and I would always get raspberry margs when we were in college, and even the times we’ve been able to visit each other since then.

But regular margaritas? Nope. Beergaritas. These would be great with a raspberry beer, but I just used a regular Blue Moon we had in the fridge already. Plus, I didn’t see any raspberry beers at the grocery store. If you can find them, please try it and tell me how it is!

Raspberry Beergaritas

Yield: 4 margaritas

ingredients

  • 2 cups raspberries
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1 cup beer
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups ice

instructions

  1. In a food processor or blender, puree raspberries until smoother and there are no lumps. Press the puree through a fine mesh strainer and discard the seeds.
  2. Add the water and sugar to the raspberry puree and stir.
  3. In a blender, combine the raspberry puree mixture, the tequila, beer, and lime juice. I added about two cups of ice, but you can add more or less depending on your preference. Blend until completely smooth.
  4. Pour into four glasses, garnish with limes and raspberries.
  5. Enjoy!
