Beer Margarita Recipe – this easy cocktail is made from limeade, tequila and beer for a refreshing and fun drink you can enjoy anytime!
We have a taco restaurant in town that is famous for their different beer margaritas. They do so many different versions with flavored margaritas and different beers. They serve them in a huge glass and then actually have the bottle upside down in the glass. I was not about to attempt that at home, but I definitely wanted to actually try to make them at home! So today we have the basic lime beer margarita and it is so good!
This drink is perfect to serve for your game day party, taco night, or even for a girls night in. Everyone loves margaritas! A lot of women aren’t huge fans of beer. I realize that is a huge generalization that isn’t totally accurate, but I know a lot of women in my life that don’t love beer. But these beergaritas are a totally different story! This seem to be a hit with everyone.
The big question is what kind of beer to use. I like to use Corona or Corona Light for these, but Dos Equis is another great choice. You could even use Bud Light with Lime for this and it would be delicious. You want something that is light and isn’t going to take over the lime and tequila flavor. So this isn’t the time to break out your favorite IPA. Stick with the light beer, trust me you are going to be happier with the end result.
How to Make Beer Margaritas
This is a super simple recipe that just has 3 ingredients! If you want to mix it up with a homemade margarita you definitely can. But I like that this makes about 6 drinks all in one pitcher, at one time, and is super cold and refreshing.
- Start with frozen limeade concentrate that you thaw for about an hour so it is able to be stirred and mixed with the other ingredients.
- Mix together limeade with the tequila until they are combined.
- Pour in the beer and gently stir. You don’t want to mix it too much or it will start to foam up and cause problems.
- Pour into glasses filled with ice and you are done. Garnish with a slice of lime if you are interested, but not required.
What kind of Tequila Do You Use
For this beer margarita recipe I like to use a white or silver tequila. I think that they have a cleaner and lighter taste, so they don’t take away from the lime flavor you want in a margarita.
Can You Make a Frozen Beer Margarita
Most definitely! Start with completely frozen limeade, cold tequila and super cold beer as well. This makes sure everything stays as cold as possible and you get the consistency of a frozen margarita. In a blender you blend frozen limeade with the tequila until they are just mix together. Then add the beer and stir to mix it in. I don’t use the blender or it foams up and make a mess. So just use a wooden spoon to mix it together and then pour into glasses.
So if you are looking for a fun new drink to serve over the summer, on game day, or even with taco night this is it! So refreshing and you can’t get much easier with just 3 ingredients!
