#ThurstyThursday: #tbt Raspberry Beer Cocktail

Happy Thursday! Are you thursty yet?

I know, I know. It's another throwback, but it's better than not doing anything at all, right? Sorry guys. is my last student day for the summer so I should be back to normal next week!!! I promise!! Until then.....

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!

  2. Yummers. This sounds so refreshing! Someone was telling me about a beer cocktail, similar to my beermosa but with Amaretto in it too - have you ever had one of those linked up for Thursty Thursday? I'm very curious. If I try it this weekend I'll link up next week! Since I'm FINALLY back in action in the blog world.
