Summer in the South is hot. So hot that “Hotter than a June Bride in a Feather Bed” is an actual Southern saying (if you need help translating what’s being said during your visit, we totally understand). We’re not saying it’s not worth a trip, because it most certainly is (the Lord gave us all this cool, Gulf water for a reason). But when you do come down this way, it wouldn’t hurt to have a cold cocktail recipe in your repertoire. Enter the Simple, Southern Margarita.
3/4 cup partially thawed limeade concentrate
1 12 oz beer (we prefer a Mexican Cerveza)
3/4 cup tequila
3/4 cup water
Ice cubes, optional
In a pitcher, combine ingredients, (except for the ice) to desired consistency. Pour into margarita or highball glasses. Garnish with salt and lime slices if desired.
