Those oversized Beer-garitas aren’t just tourist bait—they’re Mexican Bulldogs—and when done right, they’re pretty darn delicious. Ideal for when you can’t make up your mind between an ice-cold brewski or a frosty cocktail, the Bulldog is a surefire way to get the party started. When that massive cocktail shows up, overflowing with a fruity drink and accessorized with a beer bottle, you know you’re in for a fun night. Bonus: It’s perfect for sharing with friends, old-timey soda shop-style with two straws.
Here, our recipe for the classic Mexican Bulldog, as well as two over-the-top takes on the already over-the-top cocktail. Just be sure to flip the beer bottles quickly with confidence, so the beer ends up in your glass and not the floor. And sip slowly, these dogs bite back.
