It's real, and we gathered some recipes to make it go down smooth.

Hey, Beergarita! Here are quatro (4) recipes to check out.


Add the tequila, agave and lime juice to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Add the beer, then strain into a goblet filled with ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.

Beer 'Garitas for 6

  • 1 (12 oz.) container limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups tequila
  • 2 (12 oz.) bottles beer
  • Crushed ice
  • Garnish: lime slices

Stir together first 3 ingredients in a large pitcher until blended. Serve immediately over crushed ice. Garnish, if desired.

Frozen Beergarita

  • 1/3 cup lime juice (from about 7) + an extra lime for rim and garnish
  • 3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups ice
  • 1 (12 oz.) can of Mexican beer or lager
  • Salt

To a blender, add the lime juice and sugar. Blend until the sugar has mostly dissolved, about 20 seconds. Add the ice and blend until all the ice is crushed. Pour in the beer and blend once more until combined. It’ll be frothy, not to worry. Add a few tablespoons of salt to a shallow bowl or plate. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of two glasses. Dip them in the salt until it’s evenly coated all around the glass’s rim. Divide the frozen beergarita amongst the two glasses. Garnish with a few lime wedges. Drink immediately.
