The Coronarita, an enticing blend of classic margarita and crisp Corona beer, offers a festive and refreshing twist on traditional cocktails. Sometimes referred to as a "Beerita," this popular drink promises a fun and flavorful experience.

Our photographer didn't have a large enough glass for the Corona bottle, so they just had to pour the Corona into their margarita glass. Usually, this would be pictured with a Corona bottle placed upside-down in the glass.

Tips For Making A Coronarita

  • Although it's the traditional choice, and part of the name, it's not necessary to use Corona. Feel free to try this with any beer you have on hand.

  • If you want a sweeter variation, add a splash of simple syrup, or agave syrup.

Coronarita Ingredients

The Coronarita is a fun twist on a classic margarita, swapping a cocktail glass for a salt-rimmed pint and adding an upside-down Corona beer for a fizzy, refreshing finish. It contains tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and Corona.

Best Tequila for a Coronarita

Opt for a silver or blanco tequila for your Coronarita. These tequilas are unaged and have a smoother flavor that won't overpower the other ingredients. A good choice would be Patron Silver for its pure agave flavor and smooth finish.

Coronarita History

Though the exact origin of the Coronarita is unknown, it likely emerged as a playful variation of the margarita in Mexican-themed restaurants and bars in the U.S. Today, the Coronarita enjoys popularity for its festive presentation and refreshing taste.
