Two Versions for Beer Margarita's

I've posted both these recipes in past years, but I've never put both of them in the same post even though they are for two versions of a very similar drink.

I rarely drink because I simply don't like the taste of alcohol.  The one drink I will enjoy once in a great while is a frozen margarita.  When it comes to Margarita's, you can find a vast array of flavors and a rainbow of colors as it's a fun drink to play with and improvise with fruits and flavors, however, a couple years ago, BEER MARGARITAS became the 'next big thing' in summer backyard bbq's and get-togethers.

Here are two versions.  The first is a frozen concoction using crushed ice and the second is a quick and easy stir and serve version.  Both have gotten rave reviews from readers in years past.

Beer Margarita's

1 cup frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1 cup tequila
1/2 cup orange liqueur (like Triple Sec)
Crushed ice
1/2 to 1 cup cold beer

Stir together first 3 ingredients until well blended. Fill 4 medium glasses with crushed ice. Pour limeade mixture evenly into glasses. Add beer to taste.

Three ingredient Beer Margarita's

1 can of frozen Limeade
beer - bottle or can

Pour the Limeade into a pitcher.  Fill the empty can with Tequila and add to the pitcher.  Pour in one cold beer.   Stir, serve.
