Best Margarita Ever!!!

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by SaffronMeSilly

This is the best margarita you'll ever taste and you will never go back to using a mixer again. Note: This margarita is not exactly the "traditional margarita" It has some complexities that are slightly different. If the beer makes you worried, remember, you should not use a whole beer, only a third, it simply gives the margarita a lighter body. If you taste beer in the margarita you have added far too much, or used too heavy a beer. Feel free to sub the lemonade concentrate with limeade concentrate. I have found that limeade makes the drink too tart, but to each his (her) own...

Beer, in a Margarita...we had some beer drinkers so we tried. Beer needs to be in a tall chilled glass, a cheese soup, New Orleans BBQ shrimp, orfrying batter...not in me "Rita. Also, the lemonade and lemon juice should be LIME. If you are a traditionalist Margarita (or Mojito) drinker, you will hate this--unless of course your experience of Margaritas are from a *mix*.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups good tequila (I typically use jose 1800)
  • 12 cup orange-flavored liqueur (grand marnier, gran gala, or cointreau are good choices)
  • 4 ounces beer (bland american beer such as coors light is perfect)
  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate (or normal size concentrate can)
  • 1 12 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 12 tablespoons lime juice
  • enough water (i like to use half water and half ice to have a chilled on the rocks type margarita) or ice, to fill blender (i like to use half water and half ice to have a chilled on the rocks type margarita)


  1. Blend all ingredients and serve on the rocks with salt, straight up, or frozen if you chose to add all ice and no water.
