Who Needs a Beverage?

If you don’t already know, I graduated from Kansas State University.  Just off campus we have an area that we refer to as “Aggieville”.  It has shops, a bookstore, eateries, and bars.  Many wonderful, amazing bars.  The best part of Aggieville?  It is walking distance from campus.  We would go to class, well most of the time we would go to class, and afterwards we would walk to Aggieville and enjoy a beverage or 10 then walk home of course.  One of our favorite dining/drinking establishments is Rock-A-Belly Deli.  They serve fantastic sandwiches, but more importantly, they serve what we like to call….


Summer Beers

  Ice cubes
9 ounces fresh lemonade
One 12-ounce bottle beer (go with a nice American brew in this one)
1 1/2 ounces vodka
Lemon slice for garnish
Mix all together and enjoy….YUM.


Take a 1 gallon pitcher (I use the Pampered Chef easy stir, makes it easy!)
Dump in the following:
1 can frozen Limeade concentrate
use empty can to add Tequila.  The first pitcher usually has about 1/2 a can, the second pitcher about 3/4 of a can, after that it really doesn’t matter anymore.
1 Bottle of Corona

Top off pitcher with Lemon-Lime soda

Mix all together and enjoy…good on summer days on the patio, or winter days in front of the fire, or bad mommy days, you get the picture.  I also like to dump in some frozen berries for added flavor!  Sorry, no pic for this one, they don’t normally last long enough.

One more for you; recipe and picture courtesy of  Barefoot Wines:


3 oz of Barefoot Bubbly Moscato Spumante
1 oz. Lemon Juice
1.5 oz Simple Syrup
1 oz Pomegranate Juice

Pour all in blender with 1/2 cup of ice til slushy.  These are DELICIOUS!!!

  1. […] something for someone or stopping halfway through to take someone to the potty.   To enjoy a nice summer beer while you properly chew your food instead of  taking a bite and choking it down while you chase […]
