Simple but effective, the Corrido Prohibidos is a great way to get your beer and tequila in one simple drink. It is very refreshing and a great way to cool down on a hot summer afternoon.

This drink is very easy and is really nothing more than adding a shot of tequila to your favorite beer. There is nothing wrong with that!

If you want to enjoy this on the go -- say, the beach or a barbecue -- and don't have glassware available, just take a couple of sips of a freshly tapped beer, add tequila and lime to the bottle. Done!


  • Coarse salt, for rimming

  • 2 ounces blanco tequila

  • 6 ounces Mexican beer

  • Lime wedge, garnish

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Salt the rim of a chilled beer mug: Use a lime wedge to wet the rim, then dip or roll it into a small dish of coarse salt.

  3. Pour tequila into the glass.

  4. Tip the glass and slowly pour the beer on top.

  5. Garnish with a lime wedge. Serve and enjoy.

How Strong Is the Corrido Prohibidos?

The tequila obviously adds an alcoholic punch to the average glass of beer, but even then this drink is relatively mild.

Let's use the 4.55 percent ABV Tecate for the beer and assume our tequila is 80-proof (which most is). In this instance, the finished Corrido Prohibidos would weigh in at around 14 percent ABV (28 proof), or about the same as a glass of wine.
