If you are looking for a classic drink to serve while entertaining, or just enjoying chips and this delicious guacamole, I’ve got you covered. Fresh and crisp, this margarita is both sweet and sour. You can make it “on the rocks” or toss it in the blender for a frozen treat.

A few years ago, a friend shared this simple, 5 ingredient recipe with me and it quickly became a favorite. I recently found out that it originally came from another mutual friend, who happily shared. Now I am excited to share it with you!  

Ingredients to Make the Most Amazing Margaritas

  • One bottle of light beer – I like to use Corona Light
  • Ice
  • Silver tequila
  • Sprite – or any lemon lime soda
  • Frozen limeade concentrate
  • Lime – one or two limes can be used for juicing, and another for garnish, if desired.

How to Make the Most Amazing Margaritas

In a large pitcher:

  1. Mix a bottle of light beer with ice.

Many people like to salt or sugar the glass rims, but I like to keep them plain.

      I’ve never made a mango margarita, but this is what I would try…instead of 12 ounces of Sprite, you could try 6 ounces mango juice and 6 ounces seltzer. I’d love to hear if you try it!
