Beer and tequila join forces in this exotic nojito.
- 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
- 1 1/2 ounces Pils or Pilsener 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.
Add ice as needed. Top with the beer.
