10 Tasty Tequila-Based Cocktails You Need To Make Right Now

605-100

As the days get longer, nights become shorter, and temperatures slowly creep up day by day, there’s only one thing we want to be drinking in our cocktails: tequila. Nothing conveys summer or Cinco de Mayo like this magnificent Mexican liquor. Tequila-based cocktails don’t have to always be Margaritas. In fact, tequila goes well with an array of juices and spicy flavors. Check out some of our new favorite tequila-based drinks for those warmer-weather days ahead!

ITALIAN PALOMA

This high-acid, citrus-driven drink is a gorgeous alternative to your classic Margarita. Garnish with a grapefruit twist for an extra pop of color!

BLOOD ORANGE TEQUILA MINT FIZZ

Nothing pairs as perfectly with warm spring weather as tangy citrus, tart cranberry, and fresh mint! Whip up a few of these for your at-home happy hour to instantly become your friends’ favorite host.

RASPBERRY, LIME, & TEQUILA COCKTAIL

Sweet raspberries and honey are perfectly balanced by the tangy lime juice and tequila in this cocktail. The mint component adds a super refreshing touch!

This frozen slushy take on a classic Margarita has our mouths watering just looking at the pictures! Plus, the sweet, refreshing mango flavor is perfect on a hotter spring day.

TEQUILA, BEET, AND ORANGE COCKTAIL

Yes, we know this sounds totally crazy, but don’t knock it ‘til you try it! Ideal for lovers of more savory cocktails. And how gorgeous does this look in the glass?

BOOZY WATERMELON COCONUT REFRESHER

Nothing conveys warm weather like coconut and watermelon! Meshing our two favorite summer flavors together is our preferred way to quench our thirst on warmer-weather days.

TEQUILA COBBLER

Tequila, berries, and agave… it doesn’t get much simpler than that! Adding mint to cocktails is a safe way to bring an extra layer of flavor and refreshment to the concoction. We’re ready for seconds from just looking at this picture!

PRICKLY PEAR MARGARITA

O.K., yes, still a Margarita, but this ultra-bright pink drink is the perfect addition to any barbecue, beach day, or patio sipping session. Plus, the pear is a well-balanced, delicious alternative to our usual suspect Margarita flavors.

CUCUMBER LIME TEQUILA COCKTAIL

605-109

What’s more fun and thirst-quenching than a cucumber and lime juice? A tequila-spiked version, of course! We recommend throwing some extra cucumber slices in your cocktail for a booze-soaked snack finale.
