Cousin Eddie’s Trailer Fuel

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a beloved holiday movie for its quirky cast of characters. One who truly stands out is Cousin Eddie with his rusty trailer and his goofy love for his family. His jokes and his grin have inspired a goofy drink that only he would make. We call it Cousin Eddie’s Trailer Fuel. Give a trial run to this sort-of-fancy (by Eddie’s standards, at least) “Beer-gartita” that uses margarita ingredients you probably have in your kitchen and produces a whole lot of family fun for the holidays.
