Chef notes

Our family likes to put a signature spin on our recipes, and this margarita is no different. The addition of bubbly ginger ale adds effervescence and sweetness to this classic cocktail.


  • 1/4 cup silver tequila
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from 6 to 8 limes)
  • 1 tablespoon agave
  • 1/2 cup ginger ale


Mix together the tequila, lime juice and agave in a cocktail shaker with ice.

Fill a glass with ice and pour in the ginger ale. Add the tequila mixture, stir and serve.
