White Trash Beer Margaritas Recipe

A few years ago when we moved into our new house, we met many, many amazing neighbors.

One of these neighbors came over with a mini keg – yes, keg – full of margaritas.

I loved her before I even tasted them because margaritas are my very favorite.

Today, for the first official full day of Spring, this is what I saw:

Rain clouds, dead palm trees, and (ahh!) a covered pool.


I needed something to cheer me up, so out come the White Trash Margaritas (or Beer Margaritas), named by Jennie.

I hope she didn’t name them for me… hmmm… I never thought of that…

Limeade (I prefer the store brand)

Water (it might go against the white trash name, but I use filtered :)

1 bottle of Corona


Pitcher (or keg)

Not pictured: Dixie cups. You can’t experience an official White Trash Margarita without a disposable plastic cup.


Into the pitcher goes:

The Limeade (keep the can!)

Almost the entire bottle of Corona. The original recipe calls for the whole bottle, but I like to leave a little out and give it to Steve :)

One limeade can filled with water. Twice.

Half of the limeade can filled with tequila.

(Don’t mix up these last 2 steps, or you’ll end up with very strong margaritas!)

Mix it all together, pour it in a Solo cup with your name on it, and you get a very yummy margarita.

Not too sweet.

Not too strong.

Perfect for sitting by the pool.

So, who’s coming over?


  1. Jennie says

    Since she won’t drink any wine I had to come up with Plan B – (B being for “Becca”) ‘-) Thanks for posting this recipe! Its always fun to make people guess the “secret” ingredient – usually people never figure out its Corona BEER! ;-)

    We totally make these on vacation! except we call them Beergaritas and we make them WAY stronger. Which may be why we’re all always passed out by 6pm on vacation. We do limeaid, 4 coronas and a full container of tequila (or vodka, whichever you have). (Please don’t judge my family for our alcoholic tenancies.)

    After the last couple days that I have had – I might be there sooner than you thought or even sooner than Steve wanted. :-(

  4. Molly says

    Can I come now??! I just hate how after a great afternoon, the evening can go to … in a handbasket sometimes! Love how easy these sound. :) Even have Corona in the fridge. Glad to see that light works in the recipe.

    You see, if you would just move up here, we could happy hour together. Every Friday, when the weather is nice. Which is like April through October. Think about it.

  6. Stephanie says

    Tucson rain clouds are such a beautiful sight. I’m going to really miss the monsoons this summer (but not the 100 degree temperatures). ;)

    WT Margaritas cracks me up! I’m hosting a new weekly meme called Thematic Thursday. Each week has a theme and accept any type of link-up that relates to the theme. This week’s theme is Super Bowl – Football. I’d love to see you link this up!
