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!)

Very good, I thought it was better than a lot of the overly sweet margaritas at restaurants. We used Corona too which was a nice touch!

I really like this recipe. I did not have 7-up so I used a Mnt.Dew and it was still really good. Put a lil cayenne w/salt.

I made these for our 4th of July cookout, and everyone liked them pretty well. It was the first time any of us had tried a beer margarita. I used 12 oz. of 7-Up and no water. I think I'd do half and half and maybe a little less alcohol if I made them again.

Made at the DH's request and it was a hit with all who tried it! Smooth, no heartburn, and not too sweet. I made it with 6 oz. each of 7Up and water. Next time we'll try all 7Up. We also flavored some with an orange liquor which made it tasty! It was a wonderful match to the Cinco de Mayo taco bar party we had!
