We all have our favorite drinks that we like to enjoy in every season. For many, whiskey is the perfect liquor to have during the windy and cold months of fall and winter, and gin tends to be a popular choice during spring. However, tequila offers a lot of delicious and enjoyable drinks that go perfectly with the warmer months of summer. That’s we decided to bring you a short list with our favorite tequila cocktails to enjoy this summer.
Very few cocktails have a name that invokes summer vibes the way Sex on the Beach does. Even when vodka is used to make this drink, changing it for tequila blanco gives this classic cocktail a nice and refreshing change. Add hibiscus tea to the mix and you will get an interesting and delicious drink to have at the beach or by the pool.
For many of us, thinking about tequila cocktails means Margarita time, and this timeless drink has become a summer staple for sure. Yet, for those looking for a new take, combining sweet cherry tomatoes with herbal aloe liquor, lime juice, and tequila would work. And if you want to take the summer vibes to a whole new level, don’t forget to add a slice of watermelon to the mix.
Sometimes all we want during a hot summer day is a quick and simple cocktail that we can prepare without too much effort to get through the day, and a Summer Breeze is just that. A delicious and refreshing cocktail made with tequila blanco, elderflower liqueur, and grapefruit (or Pamplemousse) liqueur, fresh lime juice, and soda water. This simple but effective cocktail only needs a quick stir before you can enjoy it.
For some reason, many of us find themselves craving a blue tropical drink during the hot days of summer. Having this in mind, trying a Blue Margarita can be the perfect way to get through the heat of the day. Adding the citrusy notes of blue curaçao and using a dash of Amaro Meletti to keep the sweets under control, this bright blue tequila cocktail will be the perfect companion to any pool party you go to.
Last but not least, this Rimy Rita cocktail is the adult equivalent of the bright-colored juicy popsicles we used to have as kids. All you need to make this amazing frozen drink is tequila reposado, a homemade sour mix, raspberry liqueur, Cointreau, fresh lime juice, and agave syrup, all of it mixed together and served in a goblet glass. To make the ultimate summer Rimy Rita cocktail, don’t forget to add a raspberry or grape popsicle to the mix.
