If You See Me In The Next 90 Days, I Will Have a Beergarita In My Hand

Ahhh, summer.

Well, not YET.  We still have several days of school to get through, several baseball games to make up (make up games?  for eleven year olds?  at the end of the year?  Why?  WHYYYYYYY?), and several crazy days and evenings to get through the end of school-year stuff that seems to have taken over the life of my family and seemingly every other family in a 50-mile radius.

It's pretty much the only focus I have of late, in case you're new here.

Until now.  I've decided to share my top-secret margarita recipe, the one which my husband I imbibe on a regular basis with our corn-on-the-cob and tomato sandwich dinners in the summer, the one which my friends ask for repeatedly at picnics and barbecues, the one which will eat a hole in your stomach if you do not pace yourself during an especially energetic girls' weekend.  It is the unofficial drink of my family and circle of friends, and it is delicious.  Men like it because it contains beer, thus it is manly, and women like it because well, we ladies love the margaritas.

The beauty of this recipe is that it is simple and requires just four ingredients that you can easily keep on hand.  Also, the measurements are buzz-proof, so impaired judgment is not a problem when mixing subsequent pitchers.  Gather your ingredients, grab a pitcher and a large spoon, and go! 


1 can frozen limeade concentrate
1 bottle of Corona

Dump the frozen limeade into a pitcher.  Save the can.  Pour the Corona over the frozen limeade.  Fill the limeade can to the top with 7-Up and pour into pitcher.  Fill the limeade can to the top with tequila and pour into pitcher.  Stir until limeade concentrate melts.  Serve in a plastic cup or fancy margarita glass over ice.  Enjoy with any kind of food, or as a meal itself.  Loco bueno!

We are here to show you a good time.

  1. Great, now there's going to be a run on limeade at Giant Eagle. like it's not already in short supply in Indiana, Pa.

  2. I will definitely have to try this, my kind of recipe!

    1. That's exactly what I thought when I heard about it. Feel free to experiment with other lemon-lime soft drinks and favorite lime-friendly beers. Don't experiment with lager, though. Trust me.

  3. Yum! I'm going to be trying that one soon!

  4. Easy and delicious? I can't wait to try it!
