Beer and tequila join forces in this exotic nojito.

Servings: 1
  • 3/4 ounce agave syrup or nectar
  • 1 large slice cantaloupe, peeled and cut into four 1-inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 ounces blanco or silver tequila
  • Ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces pils or pilsner beer


Place the agave syrup or nectar in a mixing glass or cocktail shaker; add the chunks of cantaloupe and muddle to release their flavor. Add the tequila and fill with ice. Cover and shake vigorously for 30 seconds, then pour (unstrained) into a highball glass.
