Easy Margarita Shandy Recipe

It’s summertime and tis the season for mixing drinks! My family and I hang out on our patio a lot during the summer months, and we like to unwind with a glass of wine or beer on occasion. We have tried our hand at mixing drinks in the past, but it isn’t something that we do regularly. However, now that I have tried this super easy Margarita Shandy recipe, I’m pretty sure it’s going to become a summer staple in our house. It could not be easier (or more refreshing) and it pairs well with cookout food, chips and salsa, s’mores and a whole lot more.

This drink is perfect if you are having guests over, and it won’t break the bank either. With just 3 ingredients, it just isn’t possible to mess this up. I used Simply Limeade in our drinks because it was on sale at Target and I had a coupon, but you can also use frozen limeade and water if you prefer. The lime wedges, cute mason jar mugs and pretty paper straws are all optional! (Note: the paper straws tend to get soggy fast, so they are more for prettying up your table or for fast drinking).

I used Budweiser because it’s what we had on hand and Hornitos® Tequila (because I love it!), but this recipe would be great with a Mexican lager in place of the Budweiser, especially if you are picky about your beer. This is quite possibly the easiest prep drink ever – dump everything in to the pitcher and stir. That’s it! The hardest part is slicing the lime. Ha.
