If any of you know me, you know that I'm a margarita gal. Even on St. Patrick's Day.
My go-to margarita is made with equal parts tequila, sprite, limeade and beer (usually Corona). A few years ago I started substituting a Guinness Extra Stout for the Corona on St. Patrick's Day. Add's a nice little twist in flavor...very good.
This year...I took it a step further.
I omitted the tequila all today (gasp!)
And replaced it with Irish Whiskey.
Think about it....beer and lime and good together. (Just as Bud). Whiskey and lime are good together (just Google it and you'll see all sorts of options).
Ooooooh yuuuuuuuuum! There's something that happens that I can't explain. A flavor thing. As if someone added some spices to this drink. I love it! Bubble, flavorful...lime, spice something or other...and you can't even taste alcohol. Perfect!!
12 oz frozen limeade
12 oz Sprite
12 oz Irish Whiskey
12 oz Guinness Extra Stout
In a large pitcher, combine all ingredients. Server over ice. Garnish with a lime wedge.
May the luck of the Irish be with you!
