Step By Step  

Beer and a tequila-margarita mixture make one killer cold cocktail.

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Summer's coming! Get ready with this perfect drink for hot days and holidays.

Is there anything better than a perfect margarita in the summer? I hate to break it to you, but the answer is yes. Yes, there is.

For starters, if you’ve never had a beergarita, it’s pretty much the most refreshing cocktail you can have. A margarita plus an ice cold beer? Yeah… it’s that good. But you can take it a step further and make the whole thing a slushie!

Have one of these next to a pool or on the beach and life is good.

It’s important to make sure you have your ratio right for the blender. You don’t want it too strong because you’ll be adding beer to it later, but at the same time the blended ice will water it down a bit. It’s a fine balance.

Don’t worry though. I did the work for you. Just mix the ratio of tequila to margarita in the recipe with a few cups of ice. If you want, make a big batch and keep it ready to go in a pitcher.

Then when you’re ready just add a batch to a blender. Pulse it until it’s smooth! 

Big preparation note: The last thing you want to do is add the beer in the blender. Not only will that probably explode, but it will make the beer go flat. Not ideal.

The ratio of drink mix is important, but almost as important is how you prepare the glass! Make sure you chill it and also rim the glass in a simple lime and salt mixture. Just zest a lime and mix it with a few tablespoons of salt. This really elevates the drink.

Once you have the glasses rimmed with salt, divide the slushie mixture between the glasses and pour in some light beer. Stir the beer into the slushie mix.

You won’t be able to fit a whole beer in the drink, but just serve each slushie with a full beer so people can top off their slushies with beer as they drink.

If the whole idea of making slushies is too much work, you can just serve the mix with beer in a jar for a classic beergarita cocktail.
