Instant Party: Beer Ritas

This weekend my friends stopped over and it ended up being an unplanned girls night in. Luckily they thought to bring the makings for one of our favorite but under utilized drinks, Beer Ritas. We discovered this recipe over 10 years ago, but sometimes we forget about it, it is a Margarita made with beer and limeade instead of that weird pre made Margarita mix with the funny after taste. It’s just  as easy but much more refreshing and delicious. I am going to stock up and keep some limeade in my freezer, you never know when you need the makings for an instant party. Pairs perfectly with salsa and chips.

1 can or 6oz frozen limeade concentrate (we used Minute Maid)

1 can or 6 oz Tequila

1 can or 6 oz water

1 12 oz bottle of light beer, we used Corona Light

Lime slices

Kosher Salt

Empty the can of limeade into a blender or pitcher, refill the can with Tequila, and add, than refill with water and add. Pour in one bottle of beer and stir or blend in a blender. Serve over ice in salt rimmed glasses. To make salt rimmed glasses, run a lime wedge around the rim of a glass and dip into salt poured on a small plate.
