You will need:
1 bottle of your favourite beer, Corona and Sol work pretty well
1 shot of tequila
Wedges of lime for both taste and decoration
Having spent most of my summer sadly glued to the Food Network, this drink is influenced by the work of the great Nigella Lawson. The main ingredient for the drink is beer, something not often thought of when it comes to “cocktails”. As someone who is not a huge fan of the taste of beer, this is still very appealing as the hops flavour is somewhat masked by the other flavours thrown in. The concoction is basic yet delicious, whilst still seeming like an ideal drink for a student.
Thankfully this drink avoids the pretentiousness of having to shake it up in a metal cup in an attempt to look cool. Instead, simply grab a large glass, pour in the beer, add the tequila and then lime juice to suit your taste. That’s it, nothing more. A perfect drink for sipping on during the day as the summer months slip away as well as a special drink for socialising with your friends in the evening. As autumn and winter slowly creep closer, the drink can be edited to suit, possibly adding Cointreau instead of tequila to give a festive flavour.
Dirty pints, the drink of those horrible drinking games, can now be a thing of the past. Mixing beer with spirits can now be something to enjoy rather than something to induce a severe vomiting session.
