Recipe #110: Want a Beer? Have One of Phil Hildebrandt's Margaritas!

Who is Phil Hildebrandt, you might wonder?  One of my neighbors.  He brings a pitcher of these to special events in our community.  Of course, he can never make them fast enough, or enough of them to last very long.  These margaritas are FABULOUS!  I love them even more than the ones I have featured previously, only because you don't need to squeeze fresh limes and make a simple syrup.  Not that that's a big deal or anything, but if it gets me to the drink faster, it's a good thing.  This recipe uses a 12 oz can of beer...yes, you read correctly, a can of beer.  I have never bought beer, and it's really mind-boggling just how much of it is out there to buy.  Phil said you can use regular or light beer.  I've also adjusted the recipe for those of you who have 16 oz cans of beer in the fridge.  These go down real easy...Now, let's mix...

12 oz tequila, I use gold or silver                               1 12 oz can of beer
12 oz can frozen limeade                                             6 oz triple sec

If you have 16 oz cans of beer...

16 oz tequila                                                                  1 16 oz can beer
1 12 oz can frozen limeade, plus                               8 oz triple sec
   4 oz fresh squeezed lime juice

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, then pour into a pitcher.  At this point, you can add ice, and blend, but I prefer mine on the rocks.  Bon appetit!

I usually add a packet of equal and mix in with the beer and limeade just because I like a little sweetness...

no, this is not grapefruit juice, but a batch of margaritas I put in this container, and in the fridge they go...then, I always have margaritas when I want one...or two...
