Lagerita Recipe

Combining tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and Mexican beer, the lagerita is best enjoyed with plenty of ice and on a hot summer afternoon.

Simple, easy but a true delight for those who enjoy beer but want something a little extra. Can be enjoyed alone, with friends or served for special occasions like Father’s Day!
