Copycat Lime-A-Rita Recipe

I am so excited to share with you a fabulous recipe that is for all you Lime-A-Rita lovers out there!  Mix up a batch of this Copycat Lime-A-Rita recipe and you night never drink one from a can again!  Cinco de Mayo Copycat Lime-a-rita at

This drink has been around much longer than the tiny cute cans in your grocery store refrigerator have.  We are huge fans of eating at Mexican restaurants and I have seen over turned Coronas in Margarita glasses for years!  Then the cute little cans of it came out.  While those are nice, I like it ever better when I can mix up a whole bit batch of a delicious drink myself.  Copycat Lime-A-Rita Recipe. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo Celebrations!

Lime-A-Ritas are not margaritas.    Lime-a-Rita’s are a happy mix of margaritas and Mexican beer.  Think about it…you put limes in your margaritas…and you put limes in a Corona…so it was inevitable that the two would become one :)

One of my favorite things about late spring and summer is that I can have some friends over, we can sit on our back patio and relax while the kids play in the yard and burn some energy and I can mix up batches of drinks and we can enjoy each other’s company.  There is something about someone else making a drink for you that makes it taste so much better!  While I am not at all against opening a beer bottle or a wine bottle {we all know I do those both!} I absolutely love making batches of great drinks up!  I even make my own Kahlua! {<– not even joking!}  Another fan favorite is my White Peach Sangria.  That is a perfect patio drink as well!

I plan on making another batch up for Cinco de Mayo this weekend!   Paired with my secret ingredient guacamole recipe, we will be set to enjoy the day!

  5. I can’t wait to try this but was wondering what size can of limeade you used – all I can find are large cans of frozen limeade.

  6. I enjoyed drink recipes which are on your website. Accidentally I ran into your website when searching for Lime-a-rita specifics. I like your ‘look-alike’ recipe and will try that. Then I noted the link to your homemade Kahlua. That will be next!
    Thanks, Bobbi
