Ingredients

  • 1 lime, halved
  • Coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, from about 4 limes
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)
  • 1/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 1 cup gold tequila
  • Ice
  • 1/2 can good quality lager-style beer
  • Lime wheels, for garnish

Directions

To salt the margarita glasses, rub the outside rims of 4 big glasses with a cut lime and press them lightly into a plate of kosher salt, to coat.

Combine the lime juice, sugar, orange liqueur, Triple Sec, tequila, and a big handful of ice in a cocktail shaker (or blender). Shake the margarita really well, for a good 20 seconds, add a splash of beer and strain into the salt rimmed glasses filled with ice. Garnish with a lime wheel.
