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