 moscowmulemarg

 

Moscow Mule Margarita

  • 1 OZ Lime Juice {fresh squeezed if possible}
  • 3 OZ Ginger Beer
  • 1 1/2 OZ Tequila I used Patron Silver, but any 100% agave tequila will do
  • 1/2 OZ Cointreau or another orange liqueur
  • 1/2 OZ Simple Syrup
  • Course Salt


Directions:
Start with making the simple syrup by placing equal parts of water and sugar in a small saucepan - 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 sugar. Warm over medium heat stirring until the sugar dissolves. Let cool. Use fresh squeezed lime juice if possible or bottled if you are short on time. Be sure to buy enough limes to add to the margarita as well as garnish the glass. Stir {do not shake} all the ingredients together. Serve over ice and garnish with a lime...Olé!

 

 Ginger Beer Margaritas The best margarita Ive EVER had

 

Ginger Beegarita’s

  • 1.5 ounces (3 Tablespoons) 100% agave tequila
  • 1 ounce (2 Tbsp) fresh lime juice
  • 3 ounces (6 Tbsp) ginger beer
  • 1/2 ounce (1 Tbsp) simple syrup
  • Coarse salt for lining rim


Directions:
Line a small serving glass with fresh lime juice and dip in coarse salt (optional). Add tequila, simple syrup, ginger beer and lime juice to a large glass or cocktail shaker with 1/2 cup ice and stir vigorously. Don't shake with a lid on or it will erupt from the ginger beer carbonation (lesson learned). Pour liquid (reserving ice) into serving glass with a few ice cubes (we just ordered this oversized ice cube mold and LOVE it). Garnish with a lime wedge and serve immediately. Repeat for more drinks, or double/triple the amounts for more people.

 

limoncello

 

Limoncello Beergarita

  • 2oz Tequila
  • 2 oz Limoncello
  • 1 oz Triple sec
  • 12oz Lemon beer
  • lemon slices for garnish


Directions:
Place all the ingredients, except the lemon slices, into a jar and stir. Evenly divide the cocktail between two glasses. Decorate the glasses with lemon slices, if you like, and then serve immediately.
