It’s late July in Nashville, which means it’s really too hot to do much of anything but try not to break a sweat by blinking too much. Getting up to make a margarita, however, is worth the effort. Lissa and I found these when we were taking turns reading the Sweet Potato Queens books a few years ago, and we’ve been making them since then. They’re fast, they’re easy, they’re a little fizzy, and they’re crazy refreshing on an unbearably hot summer evening.
- 12 ounce can frozen limeade concentrate (still frozen; save the can to measure remaining ingredients)
- 12 ounce bottle of Corona
- 12 ounces of Sprite or 7-Up
- 12 ounces tequila
- Salt for glasses, optional
- Pour all ingredients into a pitcher and stir well
- Serve over ice (and don’t forget the salt!)
Because variety is the spice of life and all, what’s your favorite summer drink? Margaritas? Sweet tea? An ice bath?
