Spike Your National Beer Day Celebration With A Spirit

Nicole Barylski

Brew enthusiasts get ready because National Beer Day is Thursday, April 7th. If you want to switch it up this year and shy away from your normal pint, mix up one of these spiked cocktails. And remember, if you didn't get to try enough options on the 7th, the weekend's right around the corner.

 • 1 part frozen Limeade
 • 1 part Water
 • Lime Wedge

Directions: In a glass filled with ice, combine Sauza® Silver Tequila, limeade, beer and water. Stir gently. Garnish with a lime wedge.
