Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons triple sec
  • tablespoons Patron Silver
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Coarse salt (optional)
  • Chef notes

    This is a fun twist — using orange juice and beer — on a classic margarita. 

    Technique Tip: Rimming your glass with lime juice will help your salt stick and give it an extra punch of flavor. 

    Swap Option: You can experiment with agave nectar instead of triple sec for a lower-carlorie drink.

    Preparation

    1.

    If you would like your glass rimmed, moisten the rim with lime juice and then dip the glass into a bowl of coarse salt.

    2.

    In a martini shaker, mix together the triple sec, tequila, orange juice and beer. Add ice and shake well.

    3.

    Place ice cubes in glass and then pour in margarita.
