Corona Ritas


It seems like everyone is going on vacation to someplace tropical and warm. While I don't have any vacation plans in the near future, I had a way to fix this problem.... Margaritas!! Margaritas always make me feel like its summer and I'm on vacation.

I made corona ritas for the first time this week and they are SUPER delicious! A corona rita is simply a margarita with a Corona beer tipped upside down in the glass. As you drink the margarita, the Corona comes out of the bottle. The two drinks taste amazing together because the corona cuts the sourness in the margarita. It is fabulous! If you want to see another version of this drink check out my cherry corona rita here.

Ingredients:
  • Corona in 7 oz bottles (The smaller bottle fits better in the margarita glass.)
  • Sweet and Sour Mix (I prefer to use this as opposed to a sweet sugary margarita mix because the sourness goes well with the Corona.)
  • Tequila (I used Jose Cuervo Silver, but if you like a stronger tequila taste use Jose Cuervo Gold.)
  • Optional: Blue Curacao to add color 
  • Ice
Recipe:
In a blender add 3 oz tequila, 9 oz sweet and sour mix, and 2 cups of ice. Blend until smooth. Splash some  blue curacao on the bottom of a margarita glass, and top with the frozen margarita mixture from the blender.Turn a corona bottle upside down into the margarita and drink away! This recipe will make one big margarita.

  1. One of my favorite summer drinks, I was actually able to find the Corona Rita bottle holders that Joe's Crab Shack and Chillis use at http://www.xtremebarware.com

  2. Just to add some clarity Jose gold and Silver are the same. The gold just has food coloring. Cheers and thanks for the recipe.
