I've never cared for margarita but it was Cinco de Mayo. I like beer and it was hot so I've decided to try this for a change. I made a mistake and bought "Minute Maid Frozen Lemonade" instead of limeade but I made sure to buy some Corona as many reviewers said was a choice of beer for this recipe, and a bottle of Sienna Mist. I love sweet drinks but I also like to try recipes as they're written for the first time. I've read you can keep the margarita mix for a few days if you don't add beer, so I just mixed the frozen lemonade tequila mixture and poured 1/3 cup each water and beer into my big glass with ice and add 2/3 cup of the mixture to try. WOW, this was super delish! It was sweet enough as is. I was so happy with the result, I even brought a glass for my neighbor. Then I had another try out with Sienna Mist instead of water. It was good. Sweeter, of course, but again, I love sweet drinks so it didn't bother me. Here is what I thought: if you like sweet drinks and you're only having drinks, then the soda version is fine. But if you're having the drink with food, like at a dinner party, then the original water version might be better otherwise it's like you're having some dessert wine with your dinner. But for those who can eat your dessert before your dinner, go for it. Either way, it's a very good margarita. With Corona, I didn't taste the beer so I might experiment with some other beer. I think this will be my Drink of the Year! Yum, yum, yum!
