Classic Margarita

Let’s start with an oldie but a goodie that everyone loves – the classic margarita! This fiesta is a cool tangy mix of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice that’s basically a tropical escape for your taste buds! Here’s how you can make one:

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 1/2 ounce orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 ounce agave syrup
  • Garnish: lime wheel
  • Garnish: kosher salt (optional)

Steps:

  1. Fill your cocktail shaker with ice and add the tequila, agave syrup, orange liqueur, and lime juice.
  2. Shake it up until the drink is well-chilled—strain it into a glass over fresh ice.
  3. You can choose to garnish the glass with a lime wheel and kosher salt.

PRO-TIP: To shake up the flavor of the tequila, why not try mixing Codigo 1530 Blanco and the Los Siete Misterios Doba Yej Mezcal? The purity of Codigo 1530, free from additives, harmonizes with the punchy, smoky character of Siete Misterios.

Paloma

Paloma

The Paloma is a citrusy delight, perfect for someone who loves a bit of zing in their drink. It's grapefruit soda, tequila, and lime – a fizzy fiesta for your taste buds!

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces fresh grapefruit juices, edge for garnish
  • 2 ounces sparkling water
  • ½ ounce lime juice
  • ¼ ounce agave nectar
  • Coarse sea salt

Steps:

  1. Salt the rim of the glass with a grapefruit wedge. Dip the wedge into a small salt plate and rub it along the glass.
  2. Mix the tequila, grapefruit juice, sparkling water, and agave nectar into your glass. Fill the glass with ice and adjust the sweetness to your taste.

PRO-TIPS:

When you feel like you’re ready to level up your mixing skills, you can try some of these tips to take the flavors of the drink to another level, too!

  • Mix It Up with Flavors: Have a blast infusing your tequila with cool stuff like jalapeño or berries. It's like giving your Paloma a VIP pass to Flavor Town!
  • Fruity Fiesta: Try tossing in different fruits – from blood oranges to juicy raspberries.

Tequila Sunrise

Ah, the Tequila Sunrise – it's like sipping on a sunrise in a glass! Picture this: tequila, orange juice, and a splash of grenadine, creating layers of citrusy goodness. The result? A vibrant, Instagram-worthy drink that's both refreshing and visually stunning.

Level up your Paloma game with Jose Cuervo Silver Tequila! It brings a sweet caramel dance to the party, perfectly grooving with the zesty kick of orange juice.

Let’s add another liquor to the table with a mojito! This is for mint and tequila lovers. This cocktail is both refreshing and flavorful and can be drunk on different kinds of occasions.

Ingredients:

  • 5 mint leaves
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • Club soda
  • Lime slice for garnish


Steps

  1. Lightly muddle the mint at the bottom of your cocktail shaker. Do this until it is aromatic. After, you can add the tequila, simple syrup, and lime juice with a handful of ice. Shake.
  2. Strain the ingredients into a glass filled with ice. Top the cocktail with a splash of club soda.
  3. Garnish with lime slices and mint.

Spicy Tequila Cooler

To those who enjoy some spice in their food, why not try it in a cocktail? The Spicy Tequila Cooler is a bold drink that promises to whisk your taste buds away!

Ingredients:

  • Ice
  • 1 ounce Silver Tequila
  • 2 orange wedges
  • 2 fresh slices of Jalapeno
  • 3 ounces of soda water

Steps:

  1. Prepare your jalapenos depending on your spice tolerance. For those who want little to no heat, only incorporate the green flesh of the pepper. Medium-heat folks can choose to scoop out the seeds, and for those with high spice tolerance, leave all the parts in.
  2. For the most heat possible, you can muddle the jalapeno in the glass. However, if you want just a hint of spice, go straight to adding the tequila, orange, jalapeno, and ice to your shaker. Give it a good shake then pour it into your glass.
  3. Top the cocktail with soda water.
