In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I have collected a bunch of tequila cocktail recipes that look amazing. I didn’t include a regular margarita because that is boring and I figure everyone has a favorite recipe by now. I have not tried these yet so I cannot tell you if they are actually as good as they look.
For my birthday this year, we did a little bit of tequila tasting at a local bar. It was so much fun! It was really interesting to see the difference in smell and taste in 4 tequilas. Now it’s time to start cocktailing and try out a few of these recipes.
Raspberry Lime Tequila
Add a little mint to this and you have a delicious summer drink.
I tried a cucumber margarita at McMinnimins and it was delicious! The cucumber makes it even more refreshing and clean.
Creamy Margarita Popsicles
This looks like a perfect summer drink. It is a little bit sweet but is mostly grapefruit and club soda. A few summers ago, we were making grapefruit soda and vodka drinks. They were delicious! Substituting the vodka for tequila would be a nice alternative.
Tequila Thyme Lemonade
Tamarindo y Tequila
When I was in Loreto, Mexico a year ago tamarind was extremely popular especially in candy. It’s a little sweet and a little sour and definitely an acquired taste. I ate it a lot during that week never completely sure if I actually liked it or not. But now I really want to try it in a cocktail. It probably be pretty delicious as a drink with the sweet and sour mixture.
There are blueberries in this one. Hello oxidants. So it’s healthy right? I’m sold.
