It's officially porch-sitting season. Last week, we washed (all the pollen) off our outdoor furniture and got our second floor porch ready for summer. The weather in the evenings is so beautiful right now, and even in the middle of the summer, when the afternoon thunderstorms roll through, I still love this spot. My absolute favorite thing to do when I get home from work is make myself a drink and sit outside to either read a book or just people watch. Anything citrus is my drink of choice right now, and this adult beverage is perfect to cool off on a summer night.
Grapefruit Beergaritas are the perfect combination of beer + cocktail. The Pilsner-styled Lager that I use for this recipe, Modelo Especial®, delivers a crisp, refreshing taste. Since Modelo celebrates Mexican culture, it only seemed right to pair it with a margarita, but not just your typical margarita, a grapefruit margarita!
Here is what you will need to make two beergaritas:
- ice 
- Himalayan pink sea salt
- 1 lime (half sliced into two wedges, and the other half sliced into thin slices)
- 1 grapefruit (cur in half)
- 2 ounces gold tequila
- 12 ounce Modelo Especial®
- tools: 2 lowball glasses, juicer (preferably one that can double as a salt tray), and a 1 ounce shot glass
How to make your cocktails:
1. Spread the sea salt into the juicer (or onto a plate).
2. Rim the low ball glass with lime by running a wedge of lime all around the rim.
3. Dip the rimmed glass in the sea salt and fill it with ice.
4. Remove the salt from your juicer and juice one half of the grapefruit.
5. Pour one ounce of fresh grapefruit juice into each lowball glass.
6. Use the lime you rimmed the glasses with to squeeze a little lime juice into each glass.
7. Pour 1 ounce of tequila into each lowball glass.
8. Top off each glass with Modelo Especial®.
Cheers!  Modelo® is brewed with a fighting spirit, and did you know that it's the fastest growing import beer in America?  Click here to find Modelo at a store near you!
