Ever since we finished our back deck makeover and my husband built our new fire pit, we have been celebrating summer almost every weekend by hosting friends and family over. Often these little celebrations start with some delicious grilling accompanied by refreshing (often adult) beverages, and then followed by long hours sitting around the fire, talking, making s'mores, and drinking a few more adults only beverages. ;)
Last Friday was no exception as we hosted my parents and my sister and her boyfriend over for the 4th of July.
Typically I am the designated bartender for such gatherings- muddling mojiotos, stirring sangria, and shaking up cocktails. And while I am not complaining about these duties (I would much rather be mixing drinks than manning the hot grill ;) ), I do find myself spending more time getting everyone drinks than actually spending time with and enjoying my guests.
But not for this most recent celebratory summer gathering... ;)
Because I was armed with Jose Cuervo's ready-to-serve Iced Teagarita. Jose Cuervo Iced Teagarita is a perfectly tasty blend of classic lime margarita, Jose Cuervo tequila and premium orange liqueur, and of course, iced tea!
But you all know I couldn't leave well enough alone (although this Iced Teagarita is delicious simply served over ice).
I had to go and add a little Arnold Palmer action to our 4th of July Iced Teagaritas. For those of you know not familiar with this simple drink concoction made popular by a famous professional golfer, it is basically half lemonade and half iced tea...
