41 Days of Drinks (day 28)

• This is the latest entry in a daily feature that is running through New Year's Eve. To provide it, I combed through all sorts of sources -- my own archives, bar books, distillers' ideas, etc. -- even press releases from breathless PR people seeking to get their clients' products mentioned.

This unusual concoction, sort of a riff on the time-honored "a shot and a beer," could not get any simpler to prepare.

It comes from Ruby Tequila's Mexican Kitchen in Houston, TX. Rather than a standard garnish, it has a Dos Equis beer bottle stuck neck first into the glass. Not a classy drink, but certainly a conversation starter.

DOS RITA
1 bottle Dos Equis beer (or any Mexican beer)
1 frozen margarita
Upend a chilled bottle of beer in a frozen margarita in a classic wide-mouthed glass and let it gently bubble into the slushy as you imbibe the margarita through a straw. Garnish with a slice of lime.
