Love it or hate it, the Coronarita is slowly infiltrating local Mexican restaurants around D.C.. The concept is simple yet controversial, because the its appeal lies more in the novel presentation than the flavor. Basically, it's just a margarita with an upside down Corona poured into it. The upside-down positioning (attached to the margarita glass with a special clip) allows the beer to slowly seep into the margarita while taking sips. It also waters it down, to be honest.

It's usually made with a lime-flavored margarita (frozen or on the rocks) with a full-size or mini Corona poured into it. Flavored margarita fans are generally out of luck if they want to Corona-fy their drink.
