Tips

Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have a food processor, place gingersnaps and granola in a resealable food-storage plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin or flat side of meat mallet until fine crumbs form. Then mix the crumbs in a bowl with the melted butter.
  • For a nonalcoholic version, leave out the tequila.
