AUSTIN (KXAN) — Dew you feel like having a margarita?

Mountain Dew recently announced its “Dewgarita,” a new green drink being served at Red Lobster chain restaurants — the soda brand says the drink pairs well with Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

In a recipe broken down by Claire Lower, of LifeHacker, the Dewgarita can be made at home like this:

  • 2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 1 ounce Mountain Dew syrup, which can be made by pouring 1 cup of Mountain Dew into a sauce pan and bringing it to a boil, then a simmer and then allow the soda to reduce to 1/4 a cup. Chill.
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice

Glasses can be rimmed with salt or Tajín seasoning for an even further sweet-salty taste.
