Drink: A Refreshing Drink – Beergarita

Okay, I got ahead start on my Memorial Day weekend. Last night I met up with some friends at a Mexican restaurant in Porterville, California, called El Tapatio. I really needed a drink that would beat the heat, so I had what they called a beergarita. Nothing new here but it’s new to me…

Ingredients for the Beergarita/Beer-rita

  • 6.4 oz Coronita or 11 oz Corona bottles if you can’t find the Coronita size.
  • 8 oz Tequila Blanco… or a bit more if you prefer, like myself.
  • 1 can Frozen Limeade Concentrate
  • 8 wedges Lime
  • 1/2 Cup Salt
  • 15 cubes Ice

Let the frozen limeade defrost on kitchen counter for approximately 5 min to soften. Open and pour limeade into 2 qt pitcher. Fill limeade can with 8 oz Tequila and pour into pitcher. Stir Tequila and limeade until thoroughly mixed. Slowly pour 24 oz of beer. Let the foam from the beer subside and add enough ice to fill the pitcher. Slowly mix ingredients and serve over ice.

And yes, the beer bottle is a garnish with a little extra beer to throw back after you’ve polished the beerita. Number of Servings: 8

Keep in mind, the make of the drink may vary at different restaurants and depending how you make it.
