Couch's Dew-Rita

Updated on February 22, 2012

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
  • lime
  • sugar

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. :)

      How long do you think it would take to freeze a 2-liter of dew?

      Cuervo would probably work just as well. I think I have a bottle of 1800 somewhere, I'll have to try it next time I make one. I was really suprised with how good this was. I decided to make it just as a joke, but it turned out far better then I expected and is quite possibly one of the best margaritas I have ever had.

      Oh yum. I do love a Margarita in any form. this mountain dew slushie is a new and inspiring twist to my tequila cravings. I agree with you on Patron although we tend to have more access to Jose Cuervo here in UK. I need one now!
