With Fourth of July celebrations coming up next week, I am partnering with Estrella Jalisco to bring you a fresh and light pairing for your summer family celebration! How refreshing does a Beerita sound??? Mixing an all natural, organic agave sweet and sour & tequila with light, refreshing Estrella Jalisco makes the perfect summer drink to enjoy during those long summer nights. Enjoy them alongside a delicious family meal and wrap the evening up with a campfire, while roasting marshmallows for the perfect summer celebration.
It’s summer time so I like to keep my treats light and fresh. Always check the ingredients on the sweet and sour mix that you use. I go for one that is all natural & organic. The most important thing is that the ingredients listed should be real life ingredients. I like to go for one with organic agave and lime for a tasty treat with only 20 calories per ounce. It makes things so much more refreshing than an overly sugary drink. Adding a splash of diet lemon lime soda or sparkling water is a fun way to add some bubbles to your Beerita without adding any calories! Adding the Estella Jalisco brings a whole new flavor profile to the standard margarita. For dessert we opt for roasting marshmallows. While still sugary, they are a nice light treat. Roast them for a gooey, smoky treat at the end of the night!
The way my family celebrates what it means to be American is spending time together, especially over a big meal outside. Its so lovely to laze around over a table piled high with goodies, enjoying those evening breezes while chatting late into the evening. Spending quality meals together with long conversations is one of my favorite family traditions. Estrella Jalisco is new to the US from Mexico and is proud of how Mexican culture has shapes what it means to be American. My family enjoyed adding Estrella Jalisco to our celebration for the first time this year (especially in a refreshing Beerita!).
