Ingredients

For the margaritas

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 1/2 ounces freshly squeezed blood orange juice
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 ounces your favorite Mexican beer
  • blood orange and lime slices for serving
  • coarse margarita salt for rimming the glasses

For the simple syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar

Instructions

  1. Make the simple syrup. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Once boiling, add the sugar and stir for 30 seconds or until dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

  2. To make the margarita, moisten the edge of your glass with a lime wedge and rim in the salt. Fill the glass with crushed ice. Add a few ice cubes to a cocktail shaker and add the tequila, Grand Marnier, simple syrup, blood orange juice, and lime juice. Shake for 20 seconds. Pour into the glass and and top with the beer. Stir to combine. Garnish with a slice of blood orange and lime!

Recipe Notes

*Makes a lot of extra simple syrup. Will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks!
*If you want to make these pitcher-style for a crowd, I'd measure all of the margarita ingredients out for how many people you want to make them for, add everything to a pitcher, and chill the mixture in the fridge. When you're ready to serve, add the crushed ice and beer, and serve!
