We add lots of tips in our recipe – so you can make this dish, understand why it works and what each ingredient means to the flavor of a recipe. I also answer questions my friends and family have asked about my recipes, to help home cooks of any skill level better understand the processes we use and why!

The truth is, while I like beer, I don’t really drink it often anymore. My husband and I love wine and simple mixed drinks – we’ve been drinking a lot less beer lately.

We love beer – but lately we’ve just been really into delicious, fun, and not-too-sweet or strong mixed drinks.

Going into summer though, it’s smoother and easier to sip during a hot day- and there is no reason to NOT sip one one of these pretty, delicious beer cocktails this summer at your parties!

It’s also great to serve these as a bit of a lower-alcohol option at parties (especially since we’re using lagers in these, opt for Mexican style lager or your favorite light beer) that are just as summery and fun. These 4 Simple Beer Cocktails are sure to be the hit of your summer cocktail parties!

These four cocktails are so incredibly easy – you’re going to LOVE them!

Micheladas, to me, say breakfast at the beach. Theres nothing better than watching the sun rise with one of these spicy beers in hand! They go great with spicy foods, especially tacos, on a hot day!

These beer-garitas are a bit tamer than their big brothers – but just as delicious and drinkable! I love a beergarita for those super hot days when you’re extra thirtsy – and you just need a delicious drink in a salt rimmed glass, stat. Keep the blender inside and pour these super easy beer-garitas instead!
