📖 Tips for success
Although this drink is not very difficult to make, there are a few tips you should try to ensure that you have a successful recipe:
- Use a sturdy glass. Since you actually be leaving the coronita bottle in the glass you need to have one that’s big and sturdy. A margarita glass works well or a large Collins glass.
- Don’t overdo the frozen margarita. You need to make sure that you leave enough room in the glass for the bottle of Coronita to empty into it. So, make sure not to add too much of the frozen margarita mix.
- Make the coronita super cold. If you use warm temperature or lukewarm coronita it will quickly melt the frozen margarita when you add it leading the glass to overflow. So, stick it in the freezer for some time before you empty it into your glass.
- Add a salt rim. Make this a true margarita by running a lime wedge around the rim of the glass and then rolling your glass in salt.
- 2 oz Tequila
- 1 oz Triple sec
- 1 oz Lime juice
- .5 oz Simple syrup
- Coronita or Corona

Get your frozen margarita blend it together. Blender settings and times will vary.
We like to use the smoothie setting on our blender for a minute or two. It’s essential to make sure that this mixture is very thick and slushy so that it doesn’t melt right away when you add the beer.
Scoop some of the frozen margarita out of the blender and into your glass. You want to make sure that you do leave enough room in the glass for the Corona to fill it up.
Take your chilled coronita and turn it upside down in your margarita glass. Make sure to do this carefully. Slowly rest the bottle on the edge of the glass and watch it fill up.
