Homemade Margaritas (aka. Beer-garitas)

Funny how the last time we hung out with our friends Rachel & AJ, we were celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Mexican food and Margaritas. I love ordering margaritas at restaurants, but the pre-made mixes found at grocery stores are generally too sweet for my taste. I asked around for a homemade margarita recipe and I came across a recipe that didn't include a pre-made mix... instead it called for beer. Hmm, interesting concept, and I wanted to try a recipe that includes REAL ingredients. Sweet, yet not too sweet, refreshing, and SO good! We finished off 2 pitchers of this last night at our Island Fever BBQ.

12-oz can frozen Limeaid
6-oz tequila*
12-oz cold water (or Ginger Ale or Sprite)
12-oz bottle of cold Corona beer (Corona Light is fine)
Lime wedges (garnish)

* Start with 6-oz tequila... you can add more to your liking.

1. Pour limeaid, tequila, cold water, and cold beer into a large pitcher.
2. Stir until well-blended, and limeaid has melted.
3. Add plenty of ice, and garnish with lime wedges.
4. Adjust with additional water or beer, if necessary.
