With Cinco de Mayo approaching, I’ve been on a quest to come up with a new ultimate fruity beer margarita. While browsing images at work the other day for a project, I came across a photograph of a watermelon. End of story.
Today, I bring you the newest addition to the beer margarita family: Watermelon Beer Margaritas.
It all begins with puréeing watermelon chunks from a seedless watermelon and pouring it into a pitcher. Then adding tequila, limeade concentrate and beer.
That’s it. I do need to warn you that this margarita is a little strong, so beware. If it’s too strong for your taste, I suggest adding club soda or a lemon-lime soda (depending on your preference of sweetness) until it is the strength you like it. It’s also a little thicker because of the watermelon pulp, but the flavor is nothing short of awesome.
Garnish with a watermelon and lime wedge and you’re good to go.
- Kosher salt for rimming glasses
- 1 (12-ounce) can limeade concentrate, thawed
- 1 (12-ounce) bottle Corona Light
- 12 ounces tequila (use empty limeade concentrate can)
- About 2–1/2 cups watermelon chunks, pureed – enough to fill the empty 12-ounce limeade can with watermelon puree.
- Optional watermelon and lime wedges for garnish
- Rub lime wedge around rim of glass and dip in salt to coat.
- In a pitcher, pour watermelon puree, limeade concentrate, tequila and beer. Stir to combine.
- Serve over ice.
