"" The Exhausted Mom: Thirsty Thursday ~ The Corona-Rita

Thirsty Thursday ~ The Corona-Rita

Since I've started the Thirsty Thursday portion of my blog, everyone I know wants me to feature their favorite drink.  Today's feature is a favorite that I share with my friend and teammate, Brie.
When we get a chance to go to Happy Hour, Brie and I order a Corona and a Margarita, then we mix the two.  So simple and WAY too delicious!

Well instead of making a complete Margarita from scratch, here's a simple way to replicate one of my favorites:

Corona-Ritas

In a pitcher, combine equal parts (use the limeade can to measure):

Frozen limeade concentrate
water
Sprite
tequila

add one Corona

Stir, serve, and be careful, ’cause these guys go down waaaay too easy!


Have you tried the La Pinta Pomerita

  1. There is no way to describe just how delicious and refreshing a Coronarita can be - I might have to have one tomorrow night to celebrate one week down, 51 more to go!

    1. it is even better if you halve the limeade and make other half water and use 7-up...much less sweet. Been making these for 10 years!!

  2. Do you add the corona to the pitcher or to your glass????

  4. How funny a friend of mine has a recipe almost like this.

    Get a really good blender.
    Limeade, use half of the larger can
    Sprite, one can
    Tequila, I use Patron (green bottle), approx. 6oz.'s (always add more if you need)
    One Corona
    Ice, use Sonic crushed ice for non-blender and whatever for blender
    No need for water, you have ice
    Mix/Blend all ingredients well & enjoy ; )

    1. You can only use the blender PRIOR to putting in the corona, otherwise you will get an explosion from the carbonation. Blend before, all ingredients EXCEPT Corona, then add Corona ;) Trust me on this, my friend caused a mess in her kitchen.

    2. Patron is a great sipping tequila, but far too good to mix with beer and limeade. Save it for shots. Use a great tequila like Cazaderos or El Jimador for the Coronaritas...fantastic taste and smoothness, but not as expensive as Patron.

  6. I was going to ask the same as Anonymous, we are having friends over for a Shrimp boil on Friday and these would go perfect!

    1. Put all ingredients in a pitcher.

      If you get each drink at a restaurant, ask for an empty glass and add equal parts margarita & Corona. Then mix.

      Delete
  8. if you do it just like the picture has it, as you drink through the straw, the corona will come out of the bottle

    ReplyDelete
  9. You put the corona in the glass, but leave the bottle in. As lmt said, as you drink margarita from the straw, the corona will slowly drain into your drink.

    1. Well, my husband would be standing by ready for me to need a refill!!!! Rotfl! I just made these, and honestly, I liked it better without the patron. But, I'm gonna drink it anyway. Hubby loves it when I break out the alcohol. Typical man!!! ;-) and they ARE delicious! Very refreshing.

  14. I've been using this recipe for years, but skip the water...

  15. I really want one of these!

  16. Does it have to be frozen? I like my rita's on the rocks but this looks amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Your 'rita can be any way that you like it...it's also really good with the salt!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I didn't see the straw at first, but that totally makes sense. Can't wait to have one!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. When I make them we make one batch lime and then another with strawberry, we get a can of the frozen strawberry breeze concentrate (it is a juice cocktail) and use that in place of the sprite...you could add the sprite too, but then we run out of space in the pitcher.

  22. We do this in a little different way Beergaritas.

    Mix in a pitcher:
    1 frozen can of limeade
    1 can of tequila (we use the empty limeade can)
    3 Bud Light Limes
    Ice

    2. This is the version I have always made. Sometimes use Corona but Bud light lime is good too.

    1. Not sure. Something about the tang in Corona that meshes well with the lime in the margaritas.

  33. Do you think using SQUIRT instead of SPRITE would work?

    1. Don't see why not. May give it a sweeter taste.

    1. Oooohh.....Vodka....good choice...

  36. I use equal parts of frozen limeade, 7up instead of sprite , tequila and corona. Measure using can of limeade. Do not blend - add ice before serving or make ahead of time and refrigerate for about an hour.

    ReplyDelete
  37. dumb question...it says put the corona in the pitcher, but why is it in a glass? is that another option? or am i missing something?? thx

    1. You can do it either way....still yummy!

  40. Have you ever tried PBRitas? Dump half a can of PBR out into a glass, put one shot of tequila, a shot of margarita mix and the juice of one lime-plus a dash of salt-all right in the can (you can also make another one in the glass-SO GOOD! I made these with SkinnyGirl Margarita mix so I didn't add the tequila. I was wondering if you could make this with SkinnyGirl mix instead of limeade-not sure if it would just freeze solid or what, but I am always looking to lighten up calories in my drinks. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I saw the PBRitas on Pinterest...may have to try those too!
      I don't see why you couldn't try this with the SkinnyGirl Margaritas. It doesn't have to be frozen. When you try it, let me know how it works out!

  41. Okay, I cannot figure out HOW you put the corona in the glass! Do you pop the top off first, and cover it with your thumb, and then put it in the glass? I'm confused....

    ReplyDelete
  42. Found this on Pinterest and I pinned it right away!! he he Making these tonight!

  43. Coronarita - I have never heard about this before but I am pretty sure this might be my new favourite drink!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I can see the appeal as corona is the only beer i will ever drink. They all give me a headache because of the hops . . . I am allergic. If i am gonna get a headache it better be from a corona. So to me this is waste of a good margarita!

    ReplyDelete
  45. You know, I've never been a beer fan. I think it';s the flavor of the "hops". I did enjoy a "Shandy" in the UK, which is a beer drink for "sissies". However, at a St. Paddy's party I drank a black and tan and thought it was really good. Go figure!
