I'm no mixologist, but made this with stuff in the fridge just so I could sit on my porch and watch the sun set. It was refreshing indeed. For when a beer is just too light and a margarita may just be one too many. —edamame2003
Test Kitchen Notes
When I saw this recipe it reminded me of my favorite margarita recipe which includes 12 oz. of beer in the mix, so I was excited to see how this turned out. It is absolutely delightful. As promised, a bit lighter than a classic margarita, and the combination of flavors makes this cocktail entirely new -- and it sure does go down easy. Very refreshing on a 102º day, I'll say! My personal preference would omit rimming the glass with sugar, but don't pass on the peppers -- they really add that extra kick. Great job edamame2003! - Deanna1001 —deanna1001
I work in the entertainment business, and in my free time, I really enjoy growing my own vegetables, trolling my local farmers markets and trying to re-create yummy dishes I eat at my favorite restaurants. My son is a big influence on how and what I cook. He's my guinea pig and promises to try anything I make once. Luckily the recipes on food52 are bountiful and delicious.
