When it comes to refreshing summer drinks, I’m willing to try almost anything. They are one of my favorite food groups. And yes, in my life, summery alcoholic beverages are a food group. They land right above ice cream based pies and right below grilled steaks.
So when I heard about a drink that combined two of my favorites, Mexican beer and Margaritas, I immediately knew I’d found a winner.
As Spring kicks into gear and summer approaches, add this beer margarita recipe beauty to your collection. Believe me, you won’t regret it.
1 lime, cut into 8 wedges
1/4 cup coarse salt
2 (12-ounce) bottles your favorite beer, chilled (I use Corona, regular, not light, but that’s just me)
1/2 cup frozen concentrate limeade, thawed
1/2 cup chilled tequila
Rub lime wedges around rims of 4 margarita glasses. Dip rims into salt to coat lightly. In a medium pitcher, combine beer, limeade, and tequila. Fill prepared glasses with ice, then with margarita mixture. Garnish with remaining lime wedges. Serve immediately.
