Shandy Margarita Flight

"When Life Gives You Shandy, Make Margaritas."

A Margarita is a classic cocktail made with tequila, triple sec (orange liqueur), and freshly squeezed lime juice, typically served in a salt-rimmed glass. It's a refreshing and tangy drink perfect for enjoying on a warm day.

We took margaritas to a higher level. Elevating the tanginess with lemon coffee shandy cold brew. The subtle notes of sweetness from the honey rim are a nice touch.

So when you are thirsty and don't know what to make, grab yourself some glasses and whip together these refreshing, tangy, sweet, and salty drinks. If the original flavor, blueberry or strawberry, is in your sight, you will certainly not be disappointed with this fantastic flight.
