Mexican Bulldog

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

A classic Mexican Bulldog, made by simply dunking a Corona into a frozen Margarita, is almost perfect. But all too often the Margarita is made with an artificial mix, creating a sticky-sweet mess. Our version, on the other hand, uses only fresh ingredients. We scaled up our classic Margarita recipe for a high-quality frozen cocktail that looks like it came from a spring break beach bar, but it tastes like it was made by a Michelin-starred mixologist. While a Corona is the iconic beer of choice for a classic Mexican Bulldog, any Mexican lager will do (our favorite is Numero Uno Agave Cerveza).
