National Margarita Day 2K11: Beer Margaritas

Morgan, in a much-appreciated effort to make sure we don’t miss any opportunity to celebrate tequila, informed me weeks ago that tomorrow is National Margarita Day. As most of you know tequila is very close to my heart and never very far from my mouth. Probably because Martin used to tell me that “but for a bottle of tequila I wouldn’t be here.” That was heartwarming (and confusing) to hear as a 5-year-old, but I grew to understand it.

This recipe is something that someone at Blair made a few summers ago, but none of those idiots can remember who, so I’m just winging it. You may want to add a little more beer because this recipe makes some strong ritas, and you can adjust the level of sweet by swapping the sprite for water if. Either way, it’s easy and delicious. And you’re getting 2 alcoholic servings into 1 beverage, and I think that’s what the FDA recommends.

12 oz can of limeade (or “1 green can” as Emily would say)
4-5 12 oz Coronas
12 oz tequila
12 oz sprite zero (or water)

Mix and serve over ice. For fancy, garnish with salt and lime. Ole!

*Make sure to check back tomorrow on official ‘rita day for Brett’s classic marg recipe. We had them last weekend, and they’ll set you right. Or upside down. Whatever; theyz good.

  1. These FDA recommendations must be taken very seriously. I can’t believe I missed Margarita Day. Unforunately, I am in London this week and not sure where I can find a margarita, but will do my best to google up a tequila bar and rectify this situation immediately.
