Let's not pretend; this recipe is for a margarita. With an emphasis on simplicity and taste. Our friend with Mexican-Wisconsin heritage threw these together at a backyard cookout one afternoon and it was a bit like watching a card trick. I can't find a reason to make a margarita any other way. It's a foolproof method and really quick; critical after three or four batches. Note: consider using good beer (we used Goose Island Matilda, a Belgian-style ale ) and great tequila (we used Don Julio). Read on. —EmilyNunn

  • Serves 4 jerks
Ingredients
  • 1 12 oz can of frozen limeade
  • 8 oz good beer
  • 4 oz great tequila
In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Pour frozen limeade into a blender
  2. Pour tequila into bottom third of the emptied limeade can
  3. Carefully place beer into upper two-thirds of the can and pour into the blender. Learn to eyeball these last two steps. Measuring will triple the production time.
  4. Blend briefly and pour into glasses, salted if necessary.

Dear Ms Nunn, I've made the Matilda Pork a bunch of times--and we love it! So, decided to look you up to see who came up with such a wonderful concotion, and--whaha--here you are with this insane beer-cocktail. I' convinced you need therapy, but we're loving it. Keep up the great work. Lovingly, Rick Rhyins
