Ingredients

for a single

  • 4 ounces ginger beer
  • 2 ounces lime juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila, I prefer gold with the ginger beer
  • 1/2 ounce grand marnier liqueur, you can sub triple sec, I much prefer GM
  • 1/2 ounce ginger simple syrup
  • fresh limes for garnish
  • coarse salt for the rim

for a pitcher, serves about 4

  • 2 cups ginger beer
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 1/3 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup grand marnier
  • 1/4 cup ginger simple syrp

ginger syrup

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger

Instructions 

  • The key to make these super delicious is to use frosty glasses! So a few hours (or the night) before, stick your glasses in the freezer. I suggest making a single serving first and taste it so you can add more/less tequila or syrup to your liking. Everyone is different and prefers their drinks a different way, so feel free to add more or less tequila, more simple syrup, more lime juice, etc. This is my absolute favorite combo!
  • Before serving, rim the edge of the glass with a lime slice and then dip it in coarse salt to coat. Fill the glass with just a few ice cubes. Add the ginger beer, lime juice, tequila, grand marnier and simple syrup to a shaker with ice and gently shake to combine. Pour over ice and squeeze in a few extra lime wedges.

ginger syrup

  • To make the ginger syrup, add the water, sugar and ginger to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. Whisk constantly until the sugar dissolves and the mixture begins to bubble. Let it simmer for a minute or two then remove it from the heat and allow it to cool completely. You can store this sealed in the fridge for a few days. Just make sure not to pour the ginger into your glass!
