For fast measuring, you can use the empty can of limeade concentrate to measure the tequila. One 12-oz. can is equivalent to 1 1/2 cups. Serve in salt-rimmed glasses, if desired.

Ingredients

  • 1 (12-oz.) container limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups tequila
  • 2 (12-oz.) bottles beer
  • Crushed ice
  • Garnish: lime slices

How to Make It

  1. Stir together first 3 ingredients in a large pitcher until blended. Serve immediately over crushed ice. Garnish, if desired.

  2. Note: We tested with Yazoo Dos Perros Ale, Grolsch Premium Lager, Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale, and Bud Light beer.
