This easy Beergaritas recipe is a refreshing, delicious combination of your two favorite party drinks: beer and margaritas. Make a pitcher for your next fiesta!
Have you heard of Beergaritas? I can tell you exactly when I became aware of this drink with a funny name.
My husband and I were living in Chicago at the time (too many years ago to count at this point), and he returned home one day after spending the afternoon at his favorite sports bar. He told me he’d enjoyed the game … and a few Beergaritas, a beer-margarita combination. Wait … what?
To be honest, the drink sounded kind of ridiculous to me at the time … I think it was mostly the silly name. But, the joke was on me, because Beergaritas are actually pretty awesome!
Seriously though, you have to try this easy Beergaritas recipe! These beer cocktails are so quick to make, and they taste amazing. If you’re looking for a cocktail for Cinco de Mayo, this is it.
I don’t know about you, but for me, Cinco de Mayo is the perfect excuse to get together with friends and enjoy amazing Mexican food. I like to mark the day each year with a delicious spread and a refreshing cocktail or beer.
And it doesn’t get any more refreshing than these easy Beergaritas, which are simply a combination of beer and a margarita. It might sound complex, but they really are easy to make.
This easy Beergaritas recipe only has three ingredients: beer, limeade, and tequila, plus a couple optional garnishes. With so few components, you’ll want to make sure to choose the right ingredients, which I why I used Corona Light for these cocktails.
Corona Light is an authentic Mexican Beer. If you’ve ever been to a summer party, I’m sure you’re probably already familiar with this light pilsner-style lager and its smooth taste and distinctive hop flavor. It really does make any moment spent relaxing with friends more special!
The pleasant, fruity-honey aroma of Corona Light is perfect for this beer cocktail. Plus, each bottle of this refreshing cerveza only has 99 calories, which means there’s more room for that delicious Mexican food (it pairs especially well with spicy and citrus-infused dishes)!
Once you have your beer, it’s time to make this easy Beergaritas recipe! And I promise that if you can stir, you can make these cocktails … they really are that simple!
This drink goes down easy, but it’s pretty strong, so serve it over plenty of cracked ice. To make these these beer cocktails extra special, I like to serve them in salted rim glasses with a generous slice of lime. It’s the perfect finishing touch.
So now that you know how easy these Beergaritas are, grab your friends and make a batch for the ultimate Cinco de Mayo party!
