We made an already simple recipe even easier by omitting brand names from the ingredient list. Almost any tequila will do - but after experimenting with several different beers, we found we prefer a lighter-style lager here. This recipe can be readily increased to serve a large crowd.


  • 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges
  • ¼ cup coarse salt
  • 2 chilled 12-oz bottles beer (not dark; preferably a lighter-style lager)
  • ½ cup thawed frozen limeade concentrate
  • ½ cup chilled tequila
  • ice cubes


  1. Rub lime wedges around rims of 4 margarita glasses.
  2. Dip rims in salt to coat lightly.
  3. In a medium pitcher, combine beer, limeade, and tequila.
  4. Fill prepared glasses with ice, then with margarita mixture.
  5. Garnish with remaining lime wedges.
  6. Serve immediately.
