Margs, Margis, Ritas…whatever you call them, the Margarita is sure to spice up any summertime gathering. Few can say no to a Margarita, and they are equally as delicious without the alcohol.
There are two rules you must adhere to when making Margs:
- Do NOT ever use a mix. Without exception, they are too syrupy sweet. And the fluorescent, toxic color is surely not good on the system.
- Do NOT ever use cheap tequila. If you’ve ever had cheap tequila, you know what I’m talking about. Splurge for the good stuff: you will be happy you did so tomorrow.
I recently had these “Ritas” at a friend’s house, and they were so delicious. Made in a blender, they are great for a group. The beer and 7-up add an interesting, refreshing frothy texture.
“BlenderRita” Beer Margaritas

12 ounces 7-up
12 ounces Bud Light Lime beer
6 ounces triple sec
1 lime, cut into wedges
Pour limeade, tequila, 7up, beer, and triple sec into a large blender. Pulse until well-blended, and limeade has melted. Add plenty of ice, and garnish with lime wedges. Adjust with additional water, if needed.
