The Beergarita // Wit & Vinegar

Hey there you pretty bird, I’ve got some alcohol for you.

I figured that I should probably contribute something towards Super Bowl aka February Thanksgiving aka how many nachos can I fit in my face. For me the day isn’t too exciting because I don’t watch any sports. I’m that guy that watches for the commercials and Beyonce. I sort of Caroline Manzo all of it, and I’m just like in a dark corner by myself eating a pile of melted cheese and drinking a beergarita.

The beergarita is a special drink because most recipes involve a ton of tequila and a good amount of frozen lime-aid concentrate. I’m no go on the lime-aid and I promise to never use that same container to measure out tequila. My top needs to stay on.

This version of the beergarita is much simpler with just three ingredients: Beer (obvs), fresh lime juice, and agave. You’re getting the best of a couple worlds in just one glass. Now I know what you’re thinking: ‘Billy shame on you for trashing up beer’ to which I reply ‘I could give two shits.’ This is definitely something you should try with a couple of plain untouched beers so people have the option of what they want to use to intoxicate themselves. It’s your party, do whatever.

Now, let’s get to mixing.

The Beergarita

for a couple of servings combine 1 ice cold 12oz beer ( I like Pacifico or even a good wheat beer like Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat), .75oz (1 1/2T) light agave, and 1oz (2T) fresh lime juice (from about 1 lime).

Serve over ice (because you’re scandalous) with a lime wedge.

If you wanted to put together a giant pitcher of these because yes, then combine 4 ice cold beers with 1.5oz (6T) light agave and 4oz (1/2c) fresh squeezed lime juice.

THEORETICALLY: If you have tiny bebe hands that can’t juice citrus you could use a good quality margarita mix in place of the agave lime mixture.

  • You make me laugh so much and I’m glad you posted something because I MISS YOU ON THE INTERNETS. I’m in it for the snacks, commercials and Beyonce, too, and I’m losing interest in the commercials. I think I need a Beergarita to get me through it.

    • I MISSED BEING HERE. I’ll bring some overrr!!

  • I trash up beer all the time and beergaritas are my favorite way to do it! Also, yay! You’re back!

    • yesss, excited to be back! I need some more ways to trash it up!

  • So, I used to make margaritas by measuring the tequila with the frozen limeade concentrate can. And I got my grandma so drunk one time. It was awful. I can’t even look at limeade concentrate without thinking of it. Nobody wants to see their grandma drunk. And no one wants to hear their dad retell stories of being Fiji frat president after said margaritas. Yeah. I don’t do the frozen limeade concentrate thing anymore. Plus, I’m a food blogger now, and these things are punishable by Pinterest omission.

    Where do you live? I want to drink these in a corner with you and scoff at sports. I’m only there for the food. The only time I’ve ever watched the Superbowl was when I was dating my husband (then-boyfriend), and that was only to impress him (because he impressed me first by making freaking homemade corndogs and nachos for snacking during the game). <—- Yeah, I married that.

    PS Please don't say you live in California, because I already have enough reasons why I'm sad we moved out of Cali.

  • I am so not into the super bowl…like I won’t even watch the commercials or the halftime show cause I’d rather watch a marathon of anything else on tv, ever. But, I am so into the food and drink. Send that pitcher over here!

    • bravothon a million times over. sending one your way!

  • I love thissssss!!! I’m a big fan of Coronaritas (the ones where you stick a corona upside down in a Margarita), so I’m pretty sure I’d be all over this.

    • gahhh! I’ve never had one of those! Every time we hit up the local mexican restaurant I always see the poster but I opt for the classic margarita. Next time though, it’s happening.

  • “I could give two shits” –> favorite thing ever!

    • hahaha thank you!

  • I think we all want to see what happens when you have too many of these. Beyonce singalong? Also, yay for booze posts!

    • I think Beyonce singalongs happen with me even without alcohol but these could totally up the dancing? Also I’m yay for your yay, I need more booze on here!

  • Yessss to beergaritas sans tequila! I’ve done too many dumb things under the influence of that vile substance! I can’t wait until it’s warm here, because I would very much like to get drunk on a patio with about 12 of these.


    • only for like 30 min.

  • It’s like a Michelada but better! Also, you missed nothing with this Super Bowl. I watched the Puppy Bowl and it was much, MUCH better. And cuter.

  • I salute this beverage! Kind of like a shandy but with a Latin twist? Was that too much of a stretch? I WANT ONE.

  • I’ve had a bud-lime-a-rita and I imagine this is like that but delicious instead of chemical-y…
