Come Party With Me: Tailgate — Drinks


When one hears the words "tailgate" and "drinks," the first thing that comes to mind is beer. And lots of it.

It's a good idea to have sodas, water, and a couple bottles of chilled white wine on hand. Before heading to the stadium, don't forget to stock up on ice. There's nothing worse than warm beer on a hot afternoon. To look at the refreshing recipe for the beer cocktail — at my party it will be poured into Cal cups! — read more.

Ingredients

1 (6-pack) light beer
1 can frozen limeade

  1. Pour beer into a large pitcher. Add still-frozen limeade and stir to combine. Stirring with a metal utensil can reduce foam. Allow foam to settle.

  3. Finely slice the other lime half and place into pitcher, for garnish. Pour into chilled glasses and serve cold.

Serves 6.
