HAPPY HOUR: Patio Margaritas

I know I have posted A LOT of margarita recipes on this blog, but I have come across my absolute favorite, and quite possibly the absolute easiest margarita you could ever make! This recipe is in honor of our neighbor Karen coming back in to town (even if its only for a few days) She is the one who so generously passed this recipe on to me!

 

PATIO MARGARITAS.

INGREDIENTS:

1 Can of  Frozen Limeade

Tequila

Limes

Orange Juice

Corona

INSTRUCTIONS:

Combine 1 can of frozen limeade, one can of water (all these measurements you’ll just use the limeade can for!), half a can of orange juice, 1 can of tequila, and half of any Mexican beer (we prefer Corona!) Stir and refrigerate. Garnish glass with a salted rim and a lime wedge and you are good to go!

These are perfect for a casual night of homemade Mexican food or to supply for the masses at a party (they are that easy!)
