A Beer Margarita is a super easy cocktail to make for your party. A splash of tequila, limeade, and a light beer and you are ready to enjoy. This Blonde Bombshell Beergarita is made with Guinness Blonde so they are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
What type of beer is Guinness Blonde?
You’ve heard of Guinness stout right? Well Guinness Blonde is a marriage of of all the things you love about Guinness and American beers. Using the same strain of yeast in original Guinness and the hops and malts from this side of the pond, Guinness has created a pale lager that is light and crisp and full of flavor! If you like Guinness stout with all it’s creamy richness and slight chocolate flavor, you have to try Guinness Blonde.
This is not an advertisement for beer, but this cocktail starts with beer so I had to discuss the actual beer that’s in it! I was never really a beer drinker, except for Guinness and really only on St. Patrick’s Day, but the Blonde, and a few others I have mentioned before, have really turned my palette around. You can’t make a beer margarita without beer!

What makes a great Beergarita?
When I came up with the recipe for this Blonde Beerita, I was thinking about St. Patrick’s Day and drooling about the Guinness hand pies I made last year. If I’m thinking about cocktails I am usually thinking about margaritas so naturally I decided to combine the two. I have made Shandy cocktails before with beer which is really all a Shandy cocktail is, Beer and a non-alcoholic mixer. A beer margarita is basically the same thing but with a little extra added in.
A great Beer Rita starts with a great beer. Because I am making this Blonde Beerita for St. Pat’s Day, it starts with Guinness Blonde. And it wouldn’t be complete without tequila and your other favorite parts of a margarita.

What ingredients are in a Beerita?
A beergarita contains all the components of a margarita with a beer added to it. A margarita contains lime juice, simple syrup, tequila, salt, and triple sec. I prefer to keep this beergarita simple with just 4 ingredients!
This Blonde Beer Rita contains just:
- lime juice
This is really a bare-bones beerita, and adding that splash of limeade really beings out the floral notes in the Blonde lager. If you don’t have limeade on hand, you can add the juice of an additional lime and a splash of simple syrup. Or you can leave out the sweetener all-together and drink it like I do at home and just add a shot of tequila to a beer and squeeze a whole lime in it! I’m nothing if not efficient when it comes to drinking cocktails!
FAQ about Blonde Beergaritas:
- Q: Can you use any beer?
A: I prefer a lighter beer or IPA for my beer cocktails and Guinness Blonde specifically for this Beer Margarita because I am making this for St. Patrick’s Day.
- Q: Can I use a non-alcoholic beer?
A: You can, but if you are going to do that you might need to remove the tequila and increase the volume of limeade to make it completely non-alcoholic.
- Q: Can I use regular Guinness Stout?
- A: Yes! I have seen a Guinness Margarita with the regular stout. It’s delicious!
- Q: Can I make this into a large-batch punch?
- A: Absolutely! Just increase the volumes by the number of servings you want and add to a punch bowl or pitcher!
