Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today we share a fun recipe with you for what is now known as the famous Beer-garita! We’re not sure who was the first person to think of combining ice-cold beer and tequila, perhaps a tipsy fellow made an accidental spill of one onto the other, or a nearly finished glass of margarita was reused to have a beer, whichever it may be the Beer-garita has made its way around to Mexican pubs and restaurants and have become a popular drink on menus. The combination of the two may sound a bit odd but if you’re a fan of tequila or tangy drinks, you’ll find this cocktail delightful! Unlike the Sangria, another favorite of ours, to whip up a good Beer-garita is quick and easy! Follow the below instructions and enjoy!
- 8 oz. tequila
- (2) – 12 oz. beers. ( use a light beer or corona )
- 2 oz. orange juice
- 1 can frozen limeade concentrate
- 8 wedges Lime
- 1/2 Cup salt
- a Pitcher half full of ice cubes
- Fill pitcher half way up with ice.
- Slowly pour beer over the ice. It will foam up so a slow pour is essential.
- Add tequila, orange juice and frozen lime aid.
- Stir well to blend all ingredients.
- Pour salt out on to a small plate.
- Take a lime wedge and rub it around the rim of the glasses.
- Dip glasses upside down into the salt plate to coat the rim.
- Pour drink into glass and garnish with a wedge of lime!
