Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Tequila (I love Exotico)
  • 1 cup light beer (I used Bud Light Lime. A beer with a citrus component works great)
  • 2 cups orange juice no pulp
  • 2 ounces grenadine
  • maraschino cherries and orange slices for garnish

Instructions

  • In a pitcher, stir together the tequila, beer, and orange juice.
  • Fill 4 glasses with ice.
  • Pour the orange juice mixture over the ice until almost full.
  • Add a splash of grenadine to each glass (about a 1/2 ounce each) and garnish with cherries and oranges.
  • Enjoy!
