Beer – rita Recipe ~


My husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary at Put-In-Bay.

At the end of the day after returning our golf cart, we made one last stop to grab a quick drink before hopping on the ferry.

Now, I have always seen other people order the Corona-rita but never wanted to try it because of how over the top it looked.

But…we were celebrating… so, I went for it – AMAZING!!

Such an odd flavor combination, but yet so good!

Refreshing, sweet, tart…everything I always imagined.

This summer I hope to try and make them at home. Click here for the recipe I think I am going to try.

What drink have you always been wanting to try??
