A CoronaRita is simply described as a margarita with an overturned bottle of Corona being poured into it. Sounds good, right?
Why not make your own at home? These CoronaRita Margarita Beer Cocktails involve placing a mini “Coronita” upside down into a slushy margarita. It’s the perfect choice when you can’t decide between a margarita or an icy cold Corona…

PRO TIP: Test your mini Coronita bottles in your glasses. You can see that the glasses I have are made to fit the neck of the beer bottle.
Why Are CoronaRitas So Popular?
For some reason, this recipe has become incredibly popular. Maybe it’s because it’s so… well, let’s just say it’s over the top!
This Corona margarita cocktail is the perfect choice for a hot day, special celebration, or game day. You can serve it in large glasses or any tall stable glass that can hold the Coronitas. The fresh citrus from limes and oranges adds an amazing brightness! It’s perfect for serving at a cookout or backyard party, by the poolside this summer, or with any Mexican dish.
CoronaRita and Coronita Beer Tips
- If you want the 7 oz Coronita “little beers” to be nice and icy cold, pop them in the freezer for 20 minutes just before serving.
- Some margarita glasses have a dip in them that perfectly holds the little Coronitas. I found my glasses and pitcher at Home Goods, and they were quite affordable.
- Large Corona extra® beers would tip over most glasses, so it’s best to use the little 7 oz Coronitas for this cocktail and use the specially made Coronita clips.
- Corona sells clips online that are designed to hold beers in glasses specifically for this purpose. While my glasses worked fine, it’s always a good idea to test them before your party. The beer can make the glass a bit unstable, so drink with care!
