This crowd-pleasing cocktail adds an extra boozy spin to the classic margarita. Just like the name states, this is a cross between a beer and a margarita. It has the perfect amount of tartness and sweetness. Only 5 ingredients; frozen limeade, Corona, tequila, cherry 7up, and maraschino cherry juice. Did I mention it’s boozy? There are 12 ounces of tequila per pitcher to be exact (plus the beer)! These are so refreshing and easy to drink (careful!) on a hot summer day.
Recipe adapted from Fake Ginger
My husband and I started making Beergaritas several years ago. Our classic version only has three ingredients; limeade, tequila, and beer. You use the limeade container as the measuring instrument for the tequila. This version has a little more class with its pretty pink color, a touch of sweetness, and lots of bubbles. Just dump it all in a large pitcher and stir it up. Now, it’s officially a party!
