Prep time 5 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
Drink to a Mexican-inspired evening with these tasty beer cocktails. Limeade concentrate and orange liqueur add bright flavor. If you like your margaritas bold, make the drink with dark beer. Serve in mason jars for added summer flair.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur
  • Crushed ice
  • 1/2 to 1 cup cold beer

How to Make It

  1. Stir together first 3 ingredients until well blended. Fill 4 medium glasses with crushed ice. Pour limeade mixture evenly into glasses. Add beer to taste.

  2. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Minute Maid Frozen Concentrate for Limeade, José Cuervo Especial tequila, and Triple Sec for orange liqueur.
