In honor of National Margarita Day, I figured I would put a more redneck twist on the classic drink. I love slushed Mt. Dew so it wasn't too much of a stretch to figure out how it would taste with my favorite Patron tequila mixed into it. Though I suppose to be truly redneck you would have to use something like El Toro, but I just don't have the stomach for that stuff... It turned out to be one of the best tasting margaritas I have ever had. I will definitely be making more of these in the future.
Things you'll need:
- 1 can of Mt. Dew
- 1.5 oz Patron Tequila
- .5 oz Triple Sec
Step 1 - Dump the can of Mt. Dew into a tupperware bowl with a lid and set it in your freezer. It takes about 4-5 hours to freeze up enough for this drink.
Step 2 - Rim margarita glass with lime and sugar
Step 3 - Remove frozen bowl of Mt. Dew slushie from freezer and add Tequila and Triple Sec.
Step 4 - Add slushie mix to glass and garnish with a lime wheel.
Step 5 - Enjoy, but try to remember its a weekday. :)
