Summers were made for margarita-sipping, and now your pup can join the party thanks to a new dog-friendly margarita recipe. TikToker @RyderTheDal recently showed her followers how to make a “pawgerita,” a dog-approved twist on the margarita, and everyone (including dogs) is loving it.
Unlike a classic margarita, the pawgerita is booze-free and made using ingredients that are safe for dogs, including bone broth and cucumbers.

“First, you’re gonna take some cucumbers, some crunchy water, yogurt or apple sauce, bone broth,” @RyderTheDal explained in her TikTok. “For our rim, we’ll be using a cheese and sweet potato topper…And last but not least, enjoy, mother puppers, because it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right? Who says you can’t drink on a Tuesday?”
Since being uploaded late last month, the TikTok has received well over 4 million views and has already welcomed the approval of thirsty pups.
“I work with dogs and we made these one time as an event, the dogs absolutely loved it!!” one TikTok user revealed.
Other people are pretty excited at the idea of enjoying a relaxing Happy Hour with their pet.
“Wait, I can drinky drink with my dog!?” read one comment.
Even those without pets are intrigued by the recipe.
“I don’t even have a dog and I had to rewatch this lol,” said a commenter.
If you plan on making one, note that some dogs may have issues digesting the yogurt in the drink. The American Kennel Club advises, “While yogurt is not toxic to dogs, many canines might have trouble digesting it because it contains lactose. And plenty of pups have trouble with foods that contain lactose, such as milk.”
This isn’t the first time a dog-friendly version of a human drink has gone viral. For years, Starbucks has offered the very popular Puppuccino (a small amount of whipped cream in a cup) to their four-legged customers.
