3 New Tropical Tequila Cocktails to Try This Summer

Published: July 17, 2019 Author: Edición Mijo! Brands Under categories:

While the Margarita is a fail-safe way to enjoy the popular agave spirit, every now and then it’s a fun idea to try something new. Tequila, believe it or not, is a versatile ingredient that can be used to craft up delicious cocktails that are a little more creative than your standard Margarita.  

Check out these tropical tequila cocktails that are perfect for the summer heat:  

Bloody Maria 

Yup, you guessed it. It’s a Bloody Mary, but better. We recommend using an Añejo to add an extra layer of flavor. The fun thing about this cocktail is that the last four ingredients can be played with to find the perfect combination for you! 

Ingredients: 

  • 2 oz. Añejo Tequila 
  • ¾ oz. Ancho Reyes Liqueur 
  • 4 oz. Tomato Juice 
  • Dashes of Worcestershire sauce 
  • Hot Sauce to Taste (we like Cholula or Tabasco) 
  • 2 Tsp. of Horseradish 
  • Juice From Half a Lime  

Directions: 

Rim a tall glass with celery salt and chili powder (like Tajin) and fill with ice. Then add all your ingredients and stir. You can garnish with a lime wedge and celery stick or picked green beans. And voila! Easy-peasy. 

Mexican Mule 

A Latin spin on a Moscow Mule, this simple cocktail is delicious and bold. The perfect cocktail for a summer patio dinner party.  

Ingredients:  

  • 2 oz. Añejo Tequila 
  • Juice From Half a Lime 
  • 2 – 4 oz. Ginger Beer 

Directions: 

There really is no wrong way to make one of these. You have the option of shaking all the ingredients together with ice before pouring into a copper mug or mix the tequila and lime with ice before topping with ginger beer. Pro tip: Add some fresh berries and mint for a lovely addition of flavor! 

Firing Squad  

If there’s one thing that we all look forward to when it comes to summer, it’s pool parties. Next time you’re contemplating a rum punch, check out this tasty pool-side option instead. It’s the perfect large-batch summer cocktail. 

Ingredients: 

  • 2 ½ oz. Tequila Blanco 
  • Juice From About ¾ of a Lime 
  • 1 oz. Organic Cherry Juice 
  • 4 – 6 Dashes of Bitters 

Directions:  

Multiply quantities by the number of servings you’d like to make, mix tequila and lime over ice in a large jug or bowl, then add in cherry juice and bitters, stir well and enjoy!
