Drink Up Month has consisted of happy hours + drink specials — but we understand that sometimes, you just want to stay home. That doesn’t mean the Drink Up celebration has to end.

Today, we present you with a recipe for Restless Spirit’s Builder Margarita (surprise, it’s made with gin).


  • 1.5 ounces Builders Botanical Gin
  • 3 ounces of your favorite agave-based margarita mix (Restless Spirits recommends Tres Agaves)
  • Ice
  • Lime wedge, for garnish


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add gin and margarita mix; shake vigorously.
  3. Strain into a rocks glass, with salted rim.
  4. If desired, garnish with a lime wedge.

Fun fact: The Builders Botanical Gin has predominate botanical notes, including a refreshing blend of lavender, meadowsweet, and orange peel. Missouri’s first licensed woman master distiller Benay Shannon (once a non-gin drinker) originally made the spirit somewhat begrudgingly as a special request. Now, it’s a fan favorite.
