Sounds like a fun plan to me, how about you? Naomi Blackburn is always ready for a party, and better yet, she's got great recipes to get us started… to find more of Naomi's party-ready recipes, visit her at http://thepubandgrubforum.blogspot.com
MID-WEEK MIXERS by Naomi Blackburn
Cherry Beer Margaritas – Adapted: theblondecook.com
One of the things that I love most about Pinterest is the ability to come across bloggers, and their delectable treats, I never would have known existed. This is one of those recipes!
I did Mexican night on Saturday and had stumbled across this drink earlier in the am. Now, the other thing that I did on Saturday was my monthly grocery shopping. It gives new meaning to hating that time of the month, let me tell you…especially when you bring a husband in tow!! By the time I got home, I was ready to whip up a pitcher of these. My only fear is that the boys would have said they are too girly, but, honestly, at that point, I really didn't care! Well, let me tell you, THE BOYS LOVED THEM. They actually had two, which I guess it was a good thing I only wanted one. They called them refreshing and a nice twist to Beer Margaritas I had made a while ago and that were not a hit. So, no sissy drink here!!
I have kept the recipe pretty true to Amy's recipe. The only thing I do different is add a bit of Maraschino cherry juice to the glass prior to adding the margarita mix. So, here we go!
