Modelo Refrescante

 Muddle thoroughly.

 In a separate cocktail glass, rim the whole glass with a lime wedge and half the glass with smoked salt.

Fill that glass halfway with ice and pour Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur and agave nectar.

 Double strain the contents of the pint glass into the cocktail glass (make sure to press the cucumber and basil against the mesh strainer to remove all liquid).

 Top with Modelo Especial. Serve the remaining beer with the cocktail.
