Beergaritas with Lime, Chili, & Mezcal


Believe it or not,  but beergaritas (aka beer margaritas) are exactly what I want during the Big Game!  Or really any Sunday!  This margarita recipe is taken over the top (literally!) with those cute Coronitas and the bright, spicy, smoky flavors of lime, chili, and mezcal!  It’s the best Coronarita you’ll ever have!



Lime Wedges

Kosher Salt + Chili Powder, for glass rim

4 oz Fresh Lime Juice

2 oz Cointreau

2 oz Mezcal or Gold Tequila

2 Tablespoons Agave Nectar

35 Jalapeno Slices (optional, depending on how spicy you like it!)

Crushed Ice

2 Corona Bottles


  1. Run a lime wedge against two margarita glass rims and dip in a shallow dish filled with mixed kosher salt and chili powder.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker full of regular ice and add in lime juice, cointreau, mezcal, agave nectar, and jalapeno slices, if using, cover, and shake well for 30 seconds.
  3. Fill the two margarita glasses with crushed ice and strain the cocktail mix into the glasses.
  4. There should be 1/3 to a 1/2 of room left. Open small Coronita beer and carefully place beer bottle into the bottom of the glass. The air should catch and the drink should not overflow. (I’m sorry if yours does! I’m not good with science terms…) Cheers!
