Home Eat & Drink Recipe: The Uncommon Margarita Beats the Heat

Recipe: The Uncommon Margarita Beats the Heat

I’m pretty much a purist when it comes to cocktails.

Despite the constant flurry of cocktail creativity, I don’t understand a martini unless it’s made with gin, I eschew blended daiquiris and I like my margaritas shaken and served neat.

I’m a real snob. Except when I’m not.

Lisa Barlow, of locally owned Vida Tequila, sent me this margarita recipe that called for, of all things, grapefruit flavored hefeweizen. It was invented by Richie Spare of The Boneyard in Park City.


2 oz. Vida Blanco
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 1/4 oz. simple syrup (but we used agave syrup)
2 oz. Shofferhofer Hefeweizen

Shake tequila, lemon juice and sweetener together over ice and pour over ice in a tall glass. Fill glass with beer.

Wow! It’s a very un-Maloufy concoction but it’s curiously refreshing. With this in my hand, I think I can survive the heat wave.

Frito, hiding under the table in this photo, will stick to the shady side of things.
