What tequila cocktails do you love? Margaritas? Palomas? Something a little more special? More importantly, which time of day is your favorite for cocktails? From brunch drinks to a little libation after dinner, tequila is perfect for all occasions and these are the cocktails to suit each one.
Brunch Drinks to Kickstart the Day
Some think about champagne as the perfect brunch drink but for us, a light tequila cocktail is the best option out there. The best brunch drink is something fruity, something cold, and one that fizzes. Try a brunch margarita with Olmeca silver tequila and orange marmalade, served over ice. Alternatively, mix tequila reposado with a touch of Prosecco for the perfect fizzy option. If you’re going to have a tequila drink, brunch could be the best place to start.
Long Drinking at Lunchtime
It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere right? And that is certainly reason enough to elevate your lunchtime with something long and tasty. The ideal tequila drink choice for lunchtime is certainly the Paloma, sweet, tasty, and light enough for lunchtime. White tequila, grapefruit juice, lime, and ice, does it get much better?
After Dinner Tequila With Your Parents
For a classy, post-dinner drink, look no further than the nutty Irishman — with a twist. Mix good quality reposado tequila with 30ml Irish whiskey cream and 15ml of coffee liqueur. Shake up with ice and pour into a tumbler before garnishing with walnuts. Classy, tasty, and something even your parents can get into.
Taking Tequila To The Party
And finally, tequila’s shining moment, when all of its powers truly come to life, the party. Now shooters will do the trick here, but if you want to step things up, there are cocktails that can really deliver. The Bullfrog is the cocktail that will give your party lift-off, a fresh take on a Long Island iced tea. Mix 30 ml of vodka, rum, gin, blue curaçao, lemon juice, energy drink, and silver tequila in a shaker and pour over ice. Garnish with a slice of fresh lemon and enjoy. This may sound strong, but low measures help to create a drink you will not forget in a hurry.
These are the best tequila cocktails depending on when and where you are drinking.
