Celebrate International Margarita Day With The Matthew McConaughey Margarita Recipe

You know the drill around here…

Anything Matthew McConaughey automatically gets my stamp of approval, but this time we’re not talking about Lincolns or Wild Turkey, we’re talking margaritas. And, with today being international Margarita Day, couldn’t think of a better time to let you in on the patented McConaughey Margarita recipe.

McConaughey was cookin’ up his Just Keep Livin’ margs with Guy Fieri in this old episode of Guy’s Big Bite so we’re bringing it back from the vault.


1/2 cup tequila
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup orange liqueur
1/4 cup citrus soda
Splash of soda water
Splash of cranberry
Lime wedge


Fill 2 lowball glasses with ice. Divide the ingredients, except cranberry juice, evenly among the glasses, and stir to combine. Top each drink with a splash of cranberry juice, garnish with lime wedges, and serve.
