I am so excited to share with you a fabulous recipe that is for all you Lime-A-Rita lovers out there!  Mix up a batch of this Copycat Lime-A-Rita recipe and you night never drink one from a can again!  Cinco de Mayo Copycat Lime-a-rita at thatswhatchesaid.net

This drink has been around much longer than the tiny cute cans in your grocery store refrigerator have.  We are huge fans of eating at Mexican restaurants and I have seen over turned Coronas in Margarita glasses for years!  Then the cute little cans of it came out.  While those are nice, I like it ever better when I can mix up a whole bit batch of a delicious drink myself.  Copycat Lime-A-Rita Recipe. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo Celebrations!

Lime-A-Ritas are not margaritas.    Lime-a-Rita’s are a happy mix of margaritas and Mexican beer.  Think about it…you put limes in your margaritas…and you put limes in a Corona…so it was inevitable that the two would become one :)

One of my favorite things about late spring and summer is that I can have some friends over, we can sit on our back patio and relax while the kids play in the yard and burn some energy and I can mix up batches of drinks and we can enjoy each other’s company.  There is something about someone else making a drink for you that makes it taste so much better!  While I am not at all against opening a beer bottle or a wine bottle {we all know I do those both!} I absolutely love making batches of great drinks up!  I even make my own Kahlua! {<– not even joking!}  Another fan favorite is my White Peach Sangria.  That is a perfect patio drink as well!

I plan on making another batch up for Cinco de Mayo this weekend!   Paired with my secret ingredient guacamole recipe, we will be set to enjoy the day!
