Mrs. Lilien's Senorita Spin Beer-rita Recipe

Pour, por favor

senorita spin beer-ita!

As readers of Mrslilien.com well know, the rhyming lifestyle blog hooks you at hello.

Now Mrs. Lilien (a.k.a. graphic designer Kelley Lilien) brings us a new reason to shirk our chores: Mrs. Lilien’s Cocktail Swatchbook just hit bookstores. An ode to classic libations made modern, the book is divided into hard-to-resist recipe sections (blended, shaken, and punch bowls).

Here, Lilien shares a deadly beer/tequila concoction. Our only recommendation: Sip slowly, or the room may start spinning, too.

Senorita Spin Beer-rita
Serves four

6 limes, juiced and zested
¼ c. agave nectar
½ c. tequila
½ c. simple syrup

1. In a blender, add juice and zest, nectar, tequila, simple syrup, and salt; blend on high for 30 seconds.
