It’s summer, and that means, well, many things: on the downside, itchy mosquito bites, a kitchen that’s too hot for you to use the oven, and sweat stains in unfortunate and surprising locations. On the upside, however? It’s the true height of tequila season. If you’re a fan of tequila drinks, these are the months you’ve been waiting all year for: ideal weather for sipping a refreshing, tequila-based cocktail.

In college, it was cool to just take a tequila shot (or four), but now that you’re old enough to have graduated from bottom-shelf swill to Patron and high-quality mescal, you should be comfortable mixing up a truly elegant, delicious tequila drink.

When it comes to tequila cocktails, let’s be honest: the tequila sunrise is played out. Graduate from the basics with a simple but chic new tequila cocktail for summer: the “Este Lado,” which was created by mixologists Ben Scorah and Marshall Altier, and features Don Julio tequila. The flavor profile is clean and sophisticated: combining the fresh, crisp flavor of cucumber flavor with cooling mint and a touch of lime, this blend is the perfect summer sip.

If you’re looking for more variety, check out our 8 Tequila Cocktail Recipes, which vary from classic to the more unusual. While it may no longer be the Cinco de Mayo, delicious tequila drinks that were suitable for the 5th of May only get more inviting as the days grow hotter.

I recently built some Spicy Tequila Drinks as Signature Cocktails, which include two killer, thoroughly road-tested recipes for mixing Avión tequila into some spicy specialty flavors.

If you’re less interested in making your own drinks than sipping high-quality mescal, you may be interested in the Top Tequila Bars in the U.S.

We love our tequila shots or a frozen margarita on a summer day, but there's so much to do with tequila that we have never considered. Spots around the country are making some pretty creative and interesting cocktails, all using the very versatile (and delicious!) tequila.

Sure, we'll continue to have our frozen alcoholic slushies by the beach all summer and do tequila shots just because sometimes you really need one, but if you want to really expand your appreciation of a terribly underappreciated cocktail ingredient, these expertly mixed tequila cocktails are a great way to start.

And, of course, if you are going to go wild, go for the good tequila, because you are absolutely worth it.

Kick-off your tequila adventure with a few essential cocktails that display the spirit’s versatility.

Watch Now: Get Inspired by our Favorite Tequila Cocktails

  • 01of 15The Margarita />The Spruce / Katarina ZunicThe margarita is the most widely known tequila cocktail. The original lime version is incredibly easy to mix up from scratch. It requires just three ingredients, and the fresh citrus flavor is captivating. Once you get a taste of an authentic margarita, there are many other margaritas to explore.
  • 02of 15Tequila Sunrise />The Spruce EatsAnother iconic cocktail in the world of tequila is the beautiful tequila sunrise. This simple mixed drink includes tequila, orange juice, and grenadine. Not only does the grenadine create a sunrise in your glass, but it also adds a fruity sweetness to contrast the tart citrus. With tequila hanging out in the background, it’s easy to see why this will forever be a favorite.
  • 03of 15The Paloma />The Spruce / Julia HartbeckThe paloma may be one of the most underrated tequila cocktails around. For this recipe, you’ll choose your favorite tequila, add a little lime juice, then top it off with grapefruit soda. The simplicity does not do justice to the taste, and it’s one of the best ways to experience the perfect pairing of tequila and grapefruit.
  • 04of 15Tequila Collins />Brian Macdonald / Getty ImagesTequila makes an appearance in the collins drink family as well. While gin, whiskey, and vodka have long been the stars of this famous formula, a shot of tequila gives it new life. In the tequila collins, you’ll pour lemon juice and agave nectar, then finish it off with club soda. These semi-transparent flavors allow a good tequila to shine in all its glory.
  • 05of 15The Tequini />The Spruce Eats / S&C Design StudiosWith all the martinis in the world, it should not be a surprise that tequila has found its way into the mix. The tequini replaces gin with tequila, and it’s a fascinating way to switch up a routine. The key to this drink is to start with the best blanco tequila you can find. Pair that with quality vermouth, and you have a dry cocktail with a shining personality.
  • 06of 15Brave Bull />Ekaterina Molchanova / Getty ImagesFans of the vodka-based black Russian will surely want to get a taste of the brave bull. Tequila’s agave flavor adds a new dimension to the mixed drink, and the recipe shows off another fabulous tequila pairing: coffee. In this lowball, all you need is a little Kahlua (or your favorite coffee liqueur) for a fun twist on a happy hour staple.
  • 07of 15Envy Cocktail />The Spruce Eats / S&C Design StudiosBlue and green cocktails are alluring. Throw tequila into the mix, and you know it’s time to get the party started! One of the best in this category is the stunning envy cocktail. This fancy little cocktail is filled with tropical fruits, shaking tequila with blue curaçao and pineapple juice. When served in a cocktail glass, the turquoise drink works just as well for elegant affairs as it does for casual parties.
  • 08of 15Bloody Maria />The Spruce Eats / S&C Design StudiosThe bloody Mary is one of the most popular mixed drinks of all time. Have you tried substituting tequila for the vodka? The bloody Maria recipe has everything that makes the original great, including savory tomato juice and all the classic spices customized to your taste. However, with tequila’s agave flavor in the background, this brunch cocktail is even more exciting.
  • 09of 15The Passion Cocktail />Getty Images/Leslie ThomsonThe passion cocktail is an excellent choice when you’re in the mood for the sweet taste of cranberry. Just like the cosmopolitan, you’ll need cranberry and lime juices along with an orange liqueur like Grand Marnier. It’s simple, lovely, and perfect for a romantic dinner, and this recipe makes two drinks. You might even find you prefer tequila over the vodka version.
  • 10of 15Sangrita />The Spruce Eats Many shots and shooters use tequila, but few can rival the taste of the sangrita. This two-part shot is a taste experience like no other, and there are a couple of ways to make it. While the modern sangrita chases a shot of tequila with a spicy tomato juice mix, the original version is entirely different. It backs up the tequila with a shot of orange, lime, and grenadine that’s laced with hot sauce.
  • 11of 15Dulce de Tequila />Jeff Kauck / Photolibrary / Getty ImagesTequila makes an exciting dessert cocktail as well, though this recipe may not be what you expect. The dulce de tequila is a margarita of sorts, combining orange liqueur, lime juice, and agave nectar with reposado tequila. It gets interesting when you pour a small shot of cognac, then give it a sugar rim for a perfectly subtle amount of sweetness.
  • 12of 15Reposado Old-Fashioned />The Spruce Eats / S&C Design StudiosLove an old-fashioned but ran out of bourbon? Grab a bottle of reposado tequila instead! Similar to the original, the reposado old-fashioned is a stunning way to show off an exquisite tequila. It uses agave nectar for the sweetener and switches up the fruits to nectarine slices and Bing cherries. Give it a dash or two of bitters, and a wonderful cocktail is ready to enjoy.
  • 13of 15El Diablo />The Spruce Eats / S&C Design StudiosEl diablo is a cocktail that every tequila lover needs to taste. The recipe pairs an aged tequila with lime juice and the sweet black currant flavor of crème de cassis. Top it off with your favorite ginger beer to create a dazzling drink.
  • 14of 15Tamarind and Tequila />The Spruce Eats / S&C Design StudiosSome flavor pairings are utterly perfect. Tamarind and tequila are one of those, and the harmonious duo is the highlight of this simple highball. Mixing a blanco tequila and tamarind nectar, adding a hint of sweetness, then the sparkle of ginger ale creates a drink you definitely won’t forget.
  • 15of 15Habanero Martini />The Spruce Eats / S&C Design StudiosSpicy cocktails are a natural venue for tequila. In the habanero martini, the tequini gets a peppery kick that’s sure to please palates that can handle the heat. The recipe is best with the reposado tequila base. It’s accented with dry vermouth and garnished with a whole habanero pepper, which slowly infuses its spice into the mix as you drink. It won’t get too hot before it’s finished, but it will grab your attention!

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With These 8 Fun Tequila Cocktail Recipes

It’s Cinco de Mayo! Today, different parts of the world commemorate together with Mexico for the victory at the Battle of Puebla over the occupying French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862. Over the years this holiday has evolved into a celebration of the Mexican heritage, and people have made it an excuse to indulge in quesadillas, tacos, and various cocktail mixes with tequila.

Most of the bars in the Metro are currently having their promotions for tequila shooters and tequila-based cocktails. But, if you’re planning to celebrate at home, here’s a list of fun cocktail recipes you can mix up and serve to your guests Cinco de Mayo:

1. Southern Sunshine

Southern Sunshine, created by events group ICX Parties, is a take on the classic margarita. The addition of mango puree and basil and spicy salt, gives a different dimension to the drink. This sweet-spicy combination is lip-smackingly good. Click to see recipe

2. Serbesa Cocktail

This margarita + beer hybrid is a long drink you can nurse for a while. The sweetness of the triple sec and simple syrup rounds out the bitterness of the beer. It’s a full-bodied yet balanced cocktail that is a step above enjoying plain beer. Click to see recipe

3. Pastilla Colada Cocktail Recipe

Pastilla Colada is DrinkManila’s twist on the piña colada. Made with Zambales pastillas, the Pastilla Colada is a sweet, creamy cocktail with a rich, milky finish that lingers.

4. Pinaygarita

DrinkManlia created this cocktail as a tribute to Miss Universe and gave the classic sexy margarita a “Pinay” twist. This fun cocktail will be a great addition to your menu for tequila based cocktails this Cinco de Mayo. The balanced and well-rounded Pinaygarita has a little bit of everything: It’s sweet and tart, with a kick of tequila that lights up the taste buds. The green mango and pineapple combined produce a delicate fragrance that is unfamiliar but at the same time sophisticated and potent. Click to see recipe

5. Fire Rooster

We created this cocktail recipe last 2017 to celebrate the year of the Fire Rooster and if you’re looking for a spicy tequila cocktail this drink will certainly ring any celebration with a bang. This invigorating cocktail has a dry heat that matches well with the warmth of the agave from tequila. This citrusy drink is well-balanced and layered, with a spiciness that creeps in more than it kicks. Click to see recipe

6. Cheetos Valentina

This imposing shooter looks hot! We created a twist to the popular Cheetos tequila shooter. Apart from the Flaming Hot Cheetos, we’ve added the cheesy Jalapeno Cheetos, giving a savory-spicy taste to the spirit and also absorbed the spicy cheese flavors. This will definitely make you hot and wake you up! Click to see recipe

7. White Widow

This spirit-forward drink was created by 12/10 head bartender and 2017 Diageo Reserve World Class Philippine Champion Royce Pua . This drink is for the serious drinker who wants a tequila and mezcal in one drink, well, plus three more alcohol mix in it. It is made with Dolin Dry Vermouth de Chambery, Dolin Blanc Vermouth, Fidencio Mezcal, Tequila blanco, and Eau de Vie Metté – Framboise (Raspberry Brandy). It is meant to be enjoyed slowly. Click to see recipe

8. Tequilachu: A Pokémon inspired drink

This drink was created by bartender Sam Webster during the popularity of the mobile game, Pokémon Go. And though the game craze died down already, this fun serve is still one of the best recipes to serve in parties. It’s sweet, refreshing, and well, it makes you happy and energized to hunt for some more Pokémon. The popping candy makes you smile every time it touches your lips. Click to see recipe


Espanita Reposada

Tequila Mojito

I love mojitos, and when made with tequila they are especially refreshing! Below are some of my favorite sugar-free sweeteners.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces Espanita Reposada
  • 2 ounces club soda
  • juice from one lime
  • 1-ounce Swoon Simple Syrup or Nu Natural’s Simple Syrup or powdered erythritol like So Nourished.
  • a small handful of mint leaves (4-10 leaves)
  • a handful of ice cubes

Muddle the mint leaves in your cocktail shaker. Then, juice your lime and add it to the shaker. After that, add the tequila, club soda, and sweetener of your choice, along with the ice cubes. Shake it up, pour, garnish with additional mint leaves and enjoy.

Tequila Sunrise

There’s something about a Tequila Sunrise that transports me to vacation mode. We’ve been choosing to stay at home this summer – thanks COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend we are away. My keto version of a Tequila Sunrise with another surprise ingredient – sugar-free Monin Pomegranate syrup – will have you thinking of fiestas and fun in no time. Moreover, it may help you forget about the Pandemic for five minutes. (The syrup is 7 grams carbs for a full serving, but I use just one teaspoon, making it very keto-friendly.)

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 ounces of Espanita Reposada
  • 3 fluid ounces of sugar-free Tang
  • 1 tsp sugar-free Monin Pomegranate syrup
  • orange slice for garnish (not keto – don’t eat it if you are being strict, but, I eat mine!)
  • optional 1/2-1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • a handful or more of ice

Fill a highball glass with ice (I use these from Crate & Barrel), pour in the sugar-free Tang and the tequila and lime juice, and then slowly add the sugar-free pomegranate syrup down the side of the glass. Wait for the syrup to settle at the bottom. Garnish if you’d like.

What Is Tequila?

The blue agave plant, grown in the Mexican state Jalisco, marks the origin of the tequila cocktail. Also, some other municipalities containing this rare and precious plant include the states of:

The agave plant takes at least 6 years to mature. However, in some locations—the highlands—the blue agave can take up to 12 years to mature.

Types of Tequila

The three types of tequila make up the bulk of tequila distributions. However, there are two less common variants out there for the more daring tequila connoisseurs to enjoy.

  1. Blanco – 100% blue agave
  2. Tequila Joven – Some aged tequila + unaged tequila blend
  3. Reposado – Aged for two months up to a year
  4. Añejo – Aged for at least a year
  5. Extra Añejo – The rarest tequila. Aged for at least 3 years
