I know a Ginger Beer Margarita may sound like a strange combination. If you like a “Dark and Stormy” (Ginger Beer and Rum), you will really like this Margarita. It is not too sweet and not to sour, it is just right. It is so right, that it may sneak up on you if you have too many. This recipe can easily be doubled and tripled depending on how many you are making.
