Today was a beautiful Friday in Massachusetts! The temperature was perfect in the mid 60’s. Even though we have a ways to go until the summer, I am feeling the warm weather spirit all around. Nothing feels more like the summer than margaritas, beer margaritas that is!
Beer margaritas you ask? Oh yes, you heard me correctly. They are amazing. We were first introduced to them on a trip to California visiting with family, and couldn’t wait to get back to share the news with everyone back here. We have made them for weekend getaways with friends in New Hampshire, family vacations in Maine, and of course in our backyard by the fire pit. Everyone we make them for always gives us that look of confusion, but once they take their first sip they are in margarita heaven.
They are so simple to make at home and there is no need to go out to the local Mexican restaurant to fill your margarita void. I guarantee these will be cheaper than the restaurant and much more fun! Have your own Mexican themed evening and make your favorite Mexican meal to go along with the tangy lime deliciousness of these margaritas.
Beer Margaritas Recipe
1 frozen limeade concentrate
2 bottles Corona
1 cup of tequila
Rimming Salt (optional)
To a large pitcher add the limeade, Corona and tequila. Mix well with a wooden spoon until the limeade has dissolved into the other liquids.
If you prefer your margarita with salt on the rim, no problem. Just cut the lime into wedges. Take a wedge and circle it around the rim of the glass allowing for a lime juice covered rim to allow the salt to adhere to the glass. Typically rimming salt comes in a container with high sides allowing for you to just dunk your glass upside down into the salt.
Next, pour the margarita mixture into individual glasses and garnish with a lime wedge, and enjoy! Put on some Jimmy Buffet, get a bowl of chips and salsa and relax.
