I make these all year around for my parties they are the best Margarita, don't worry you won't even taste the beer, you can double or triple this recipe if desired, if the mixture tastes too sweet you can add in a little more water, use the limeade can to measure out all ingredients

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate (semi-thawed)
  • 12 fluid ounces tequila
  • 6 fluid ounces 7-up
  • 6 fluid ounces cold water (or use 12 fl.oz. Seven-Up or water)
  • 12 fluid ounces beer
  • ice (lots of ice!)
  • 1 lime (cut into wedges)


  1. Pour the limeade, tequila, Seven-Up, water and beer into a large glass pitcher; stir with a long-handled spoon until completely blended and the frozen limeade has completely melted.
  2. Add in lots of ice.
  3. Adjust with extra water if the mixture is too sweet.
  4. Serve each glass with a lime wedge on the end.

YUM! I have been experimenting with making my own margs, trying to steer clear of the sugary mixes. I used Fresca (0 sugars) in place of 7Up, and Margaritaville tequila with lime! I don't have to look any further, this is the best recipe ever. Would even be good with some fresh fruit mixed in.... thinking raspberries? Happy Summer and thanks for the great drink.

OK I have to admit that this is the best Margarita recipe I have found. These will sneak up and get you if your not careful. It was a little sweet for some of my friends so I added another beer (Corona) and 1/2 of the lime-aid on the second pitcher. I used Fresca because it was what I had. This one is a keeper and a HUGE "Thank-You" to Kittencal for another great recipe.

Oh this is deadly. I just whipped it up for the heck of it (it's 92 degrees, after all). I'm here all by myself and I have this pitcher of deadly margaritas... Quick, I need visitors to share this with! I used all 7-up (diet--heh, I know; what's the point?!). It is a *tad* too sweet so maybe next time I'll use the half water/half 7-up. In the meantime, I'll just have to tough it out. *grin* UPDATE: Made with 1/2 water & 1/2 Seven-UP and it is perfect. (Although I still used diet!)
