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. At my tailgate, I'll supply guests with a selection of cold brews and an updated version of the shandy, a classic beer cocktail. Tailgates always get a little rowdy, so I won't serve hard alcohol.

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! —


Lime Beer Cocktail

Lime Beer Cocktail

Lime Beer Cocktail


  1. 1 (6-pack) light beer
  2. 1 can frozen limeade
  3. 1 lime, sliced in half


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

Serves 6.

Another version is the Turbo Shandy: Half-pint Heineken (or any lager/light beer) ALMOST Half-pint of Smirnoff Ice Top off the rest with Vodka Mix it all up, and enjoy! It tastes almost like gingerale. (Plus you might get a little tipsy after even just one) Oh. And GO IRISH!

Ha! xtina, that was exactly what I was planning on writing ($ included)!! Stupid Trojans. Love the drink idea, though -- sounds a lot like Radner in Munich, one of my favorite drinks.
