You’ll love this lightened-up beergarita for Cinco de Mayo. Just a few ingredients to a refreshing Corona Light Beer Margarita!
Who’s ready for warm weather?! *hand raised high* As I made this cocktail, I was craving hot days spent outside, sipping on icy drinks and enjoying the season. Can’t wait to invite girlfriends over to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and the return of warmer weather.
I love margaritas, but I really love lightened-up ones best. Refreshing drinks with a hint of sweetness taste amazing, especially when paired with spicy apps for Cinco de Mayo. This year I’m serving lighter margaritas, featuring Corona Light beer. That’s right, beergaritas with just a few ingredients!
Corona Light is my go-to light beer. It’s full of flavor, but only 99 calories. Can’t beat that!
Corona Light is a pilsner-style lager that tastes so refreshing on its own or –my fave– with a squeeze of fresh lime. Pair it with spicy Mexican-inspired food for a memorable Cinco de Mayo.
This recipe is so simple, just three ingredients! Start with a good pour of Corona Light (about 3 ounces). Add 1 ounce of agave or simple syrup. Finish off with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
Salt the rim (of course!) and garnish with lime wedges & jalapeño slices. Tip: use the lime to rub on the outside rim of the glass instead of water, adds more flavor!
And there you have it, a super simple refreshing Corona Light Beer Margarita, perfect for pairing with Mexican-inspired appetizers.
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with an authentic light beer! Raise your beergarita, friends!
