Beer Margaritas


I’m not usually into cocktails, but someone gave me this beer margarita recipe awhile back and I’ve been itching to try it out.  We finally had some friends over who were willing to help me polish off a pitcher.

You don’t taste the beer.  I used mexican beer to stick with the mexican cocktail theme.  The recipe makes a good size pitcher, and although my margarita experience is very limited, I thought they were as good as any I’ve had.


Beer Margaritas


Ingredients

    • 1 (12 ounce) cans frozen limeade concentrate ( semi-thawed)
    • 12 fluid ounces tequila
    • 12 fluid ounces water or 7-up, or 6 oz of each
    • 12 fluid ounces beer (I used DosEquis – mexican lager works well)
    • ice ( lots of ice!)
    • 1 limes ( cut into wedges)
    • Margarita salt and glasses


Directions

  1. Pour the limeade, tequila, Seven-Up, water and beer into a large glass pitcher; stir with a long-handled spoon until completely blended and the frozen limeade has completely melted.  Adjust with extra water if the mixture is too sweet.
  2. Run a lime wedge around the rims of the glasses, and dip the rims in margarita salt.
  3. Add lots of ice to each glass.
  4. Fill ’em up, add a lime wedge and serve.


Notes:
 I used just water rather than 7-up.  I think it makes a dryer, more authentic margarita that doesn’t mask the tequila flavor.  If you want sweeter with some carbonation, then go for the 7-up.

Bacardi also has a great frozen Margarita mix that works great in this recipe.  The frozen mix comes in a 10 or 12 oz container.  So  I just dump the frozen mix into the pitcher, then use the empty container to measure out my water and tequila.

Great for a party, and particularly a good lady pleaser.  Don’t forget the ice, salt and limes!


Cheers beers!
