Try Miranda Lambert’s Signature “Randarita” Cocktail… Because He Don’t Love You Like Tequila Does

Miranda Lambert is one of country music’s finest.

She’s also one of the finest in the “drink you under the table” department.

Back in 2014, Miranda hit us with her “Randarita” recipe, a low-cal vodka-Crystal Light cocktail that’s perfect for the summer. Although I’m pretty sure the “Randarita” isn’t Miranda’s drink of choice anymore, it’s still an easy-to-drink go-to.

“My trainer, Bill, approves,” Lambert said. “I mean, he’d rather me not drink, but that’s not an option. I have one before a show and a half during. Later, if I want to throw down, I throw down.”

When she said not drinking is “not an option,” I felt that.
