Ingredients

  • 3 limes, 2 juiced and 1 cut into wedges for garnish
  • Kosher salt
  • Ice
  • 1 cup high-quality gold tequila (tequila reposado)
  • 2-3 bottles or cans ginger beer (I like Gosling's or Fever-Tree)
  • Chef notes

    Ginger beer adds a little heat and a touch of sweet to a margarita. The tart lime juice rounds out the balance of flavors. It's perfect for sipping at an outdoor dinner and pairs especially well with grilled dishes.

    Swap option: Try using Mezcal for a smoky margarita.

    Preparation

    Run a wedge of lime around the top edge of each glass and then dip it into a shallow plate of kosher salt.

    Fill glass with ice and add the tequila. Top with ginger beer and lime juice. Serve with a lime wedge to garnish.
