Despite the constant flurry of cocktail creativity, I don’t understand a martini unless it’s made with gin, I eschew blended daiquiris and I like my margaritas shaken and served neat.
I’m a real snob. Except when I’m not.
2 oz. Vida Blanco
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 1/4 oz. simple syrup (but we used agave syrup)
2 oz. Shofferhofer Hefeweizen
Shake tequila, lemon juice and sweetener together over ice and pour over ice in a tall glass. Fill glass with beer.
Wow! It’s a very un-Maloufy concoction but it’s curiously refreshing. With this in my hand, I think I can survive the heat wave.
Frito, hiding under the table in this photo, will stick to the shady side of things.
