If I could pick the most refreshing drink to serve a crowd, a slushy frozen margarita would be it, but this is no ordinary margarita — this is a beergarita. This beergarita is a combination of light Mexican beer and Exotico Tequila blanco. It is a match made in heaven…genius really!
The perfectly clear and crisp tequila blanco has spicy undertones and a robust taste of fresh agave with herbal and spicy notes that elevate the golden pilsner-style beer.
If you know me, you know I only recommend freshly squeezed juice in cocktails and can’t stand sweet and sour mixes when it comes to a margarita on the rocks, but when it is frozen I’m going to let you in on a little secret: You don’t only need to use fresh lime juice.
In this recipe, I used fresh lime juice in addition to frozen limeade concentrate. It has a strong lime flavor that comes through with all the blended ice. It’s cold and icy and helps create a smooth texture and the addition of the beer gives this margarita a frothy consistency.
Since this cocktail is frozen you can pre-make a pitcher before a fiesta and store it in the freezer until ready to serve.
This cocktail would be perfect for Easter, Cinco de Mayo, or a tailgate fiesta. One slurp of one of these babies and I was craving hot summer days and a swimming pool.
As they say – some moments in life call for beer, some call for a margarita, and special ones call for both.
- 3 cups crushed ice
- 2 limes juiced
- 1 12-ounce can frozen limeade concentrate
- 1 cup Exotico Tequila blanco
- 12 ounces light Mexican-style beer, such as Dos Equis Lager Especial
- Coarse salt and lime wedges for garnish
- In a blender, add crushed ice, fresh lime juice, limeade, tequila, and beer; cover and pulse ingredients.
- Pour into a coarse-salt rimmed margarita glass; add a lime wedge for a garnish and serve immediately.
I’d love to see what you cook!
