The Best Skinny Beer Margaritas

beer margaritas

Grab a pitcher and get ready to make the most incredible margaritas you’ve ever had at home!  The secret ingredient is light beer…Sounds a bit weird but don’t let that stop you from making this refreshing cocktail. You actually can’t taste the beer. It just adds a little fizz. The other two unusual additions are diet 7-up and frozen limeade concentrate.  No blender or salt rimmed glasses needed. The skinny for each is 229 calories, 0 fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.  So easy to make and can be doubled or tripled.  They go down very easy and will sneak up and get you, if you’re not careful.  Everyone loves them!  They’re truly the perfect blend of sweet and tart and just right.

1½ cups (12 fluid ounces) tequila

1 (12 oz) can diet 7-up (1½ cups)

Lots of ice cubes

2 limes, cut into wedges

Prep Tip

The day before you make these, defrost the limeade in the refrigerator.
Otherwise, place in a bowl of hot water to defrost quickly.
