Frank's Famous Margarita


1 drink


episode 3

Frank's Famous Recipe! Dr. Pike's father loves to whip up these fizzy crowd-pleasers containing his (formerly) secret ingredient! Bee-licious!


  • Chilled margarita glass

  • Ice

  • 4 oz Blanco tequila

  • 2 oz Mountain Dew® (Dr. P prefers diet)

  • Prepared margarita mix OR fresh lime juice

  • Wedge of fresh lime

  • Margariita or cocktail salt (kosher) for rim




Step 1

Pour a small amount of margarita salt into a shallow dish that is bigger than the diameter of your margarita glass.

Step 2

Cut a notch in the lime wedge and run the wedge all the way around the rim of your chilled margarita glass. Tip the glass over into the dish and twist (like a cookie cutter) until desired amount of salt has adhered to the rim of your glass.

Step 3

Fill glass to the brim with ice. Add tequila and Mountain Dew®. Fill the rest of the way with your favorite margarita mix OR fresh lime juice.

Step 4

Add lime wedge to garnish. Enjoy!

If you prefer a frozen margarita, simply put all the ingredients in the blender and blend until ice chunks are gone.

For a mocktail (my kids LOVE when grandpa makes them their own!) - eliminate the tequila and replace with additional mix or lime juice - Dr. P
