Does beer mix well with a margarita? Only one way to find out!

With summer right around the corner (we swear!), the prospect of drinking margaritas and Coronas on a warm evening is fast approaching. But did you know that you can actually combine a Corona and a margarita into one drink? It’s called a Coronarita (naturally), and it’s pretty easy to make.

First, you start by making a margarita; we like the recipe that calls for three ounces of tequila, two ounces of Cointreau or triple sec, and one ounce of fresh lime juice). Shake it all up and serve it on the rocks, or put it in a blender if you prefer it frozen. Pour it into a wide-rimmed margarita glass, then crack open a Coronita, which is a 6.4 ounce bottle. In order to make a Coronarita work, you’ll need a margarita clip, which can be purchased cheaply online. Attach it to the edge of the glass and quickly invert the beer into the clip so that the upside-down bottle is sticking out of the drink and as little beer as possible has been poured out of it.

This way, beer will slowly pour out of the bottle and into the margarita as you’re drinking it, creating a flavor that’s actually a winning combination. And once you’ve grasped it, feel free to experiment; we’re fans of beer Bloody Marys, too!
