  • For the Ancho Simple Syrup, mix sugar, water and ancho chile pepper in small saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand 2 hours. Strain through double layer of cheesecloth or coffee filter. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled. (This makes enough syrup for 4 batches of Beergaritas.)

  • For the Beergaritas, place frozen margarita mix, strawberries, ice, tequila and Ancho Simple Syrup in blender container; cover. Blend on medium-high speed until smooth. Slowly add beer; mix gently. Serve immediately in beverage glasses.

Cooking tip

Serve in beverage glasses rimmed with ancho chile salt. Mix 2 tablespoons kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Ancho Chile Pepper in small plate. Wet outside rims of beverage glasses with lime wedge. Dip glasses into ancho chile salt to coat.

Variation: Try with other fruits including peaches and mangoes. Use 1 cup chopped fruit in place of the strawberries.
