#ThurstyThursday: Raspberry Beer Cocktail

Happy Thursday! Are you thursty yet? Because you're about to be with this one!

It's been so absolutely gorgeous over these past few days and this weekend. It rained a little but my plants could totally have used it and now they are blooming beautifully!!

This week I tried out another beer cocktail. I loved the last one and since it's so nice outside I thought I would make something we could keep in a pitcher and just pour. We usually have our goto Arnold Palmeranians stocked up in the fridge but they're getting a little old lately, so this is a great change.

One thing that's really nice about this is how refreshing it is. Beer sometimes bloats me in the summertime but it's so much easier to grab a beer and do yard work then have to keep track of your cocktail and keep mixing. This is a little of the best of both worlds.

And the raspberry. I love how it adds just enough flavor without overpowering the cocktail with a fruity taste. It keeps it light, but blends in nicely with the pink lemonade.

Raspberry Beer Cocktail
1 cup raspberries, frozen or fresh
2/3 container pink lemonade concentrate, or raspberry lemonade concentrate.
1/2 cup vodka
3 Coronas

Add raspberries and muddle just a little. Add pink lemonade, and vodka to pitcher. Mix well. Pour Coronas into mixture. Enjoy!! Cheers!

  1. This sounds like the perfect summer cocktail!

    1. It's definitely yummy and I love that you can make a lot at one time. And you can change the ingredients to perfect how you like it!

  2. I dont normally mix beer and liquor but if you say it's good then maybe it's worth a shot!

    1. It's really delicious and not too girly, either. But be careful if mixing catches up with you. This might be a little dangerous.

  3. Oh my gosh how yum! This looks so refreshing. I like fruity drinks in the summer but traditional cocktails are usually too much and I can only drink 1 or 2. I could sip this baby all day!

  4. You had me at raspberries!

    1. Haha. They definitely add the best flavor. If you can find raspberry lemonade definitely mix it with that!

  5. That looks so delish!!

  7. This sounds delicious and refreshing and like I need to go to the tore after work to get everything to make it!

  8. Down here in the south we call that a Pink Panty and we love them!!! I actually love all beer cocktails!

  9. OH MY GOD YUM! I've made something similar (like Amy says - pink panty droppers) but it wasn't specifically raspberry, and we usually use cheap beer. This with corona though sounds so freaking good and refreshing!

  10. This sounds yummy! I love raspberry lemonade. It does sound much too easy to drink :)

  11. God damnit!! Fail!! I forgot to take photos of the damn drink this weekend and I don't want to use a stock photo. Next week!! But that beer cocktail looks deelish!

  12. This sounds like the perfect Summer drink! Thanks for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop!
