Take a chance on a night of joy with a drink of exquisiteness; when you’re having a get together with friends, impress them with tasty cocktail making skills. This will make any night better. An ‘Ole’ is strong and powerful to drink. It’s made with 1.5 oz. tequila, 1 oz. coffee liqueur, 2 teaspoons sugar, and ½ oz. cream. Combine tequila, coffee liqueur, and soda in a mixing glass; stir and strain into a chilled martini glass filled with crushed ice.

Float the cream, on top by pouring it over the back of the spoon into the martini or cocktail glass. A ‘Poloma’ is a simple and nice drink to sip on when you are having a calm evening with loved ones; it’s made with 2 oz. Azunia Platinum Tequila, 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice, Squirt, and a dash of sea salt.

To make it, moisten the rim of the glass with the lime wedge and salt the rim; add a dash of sea salt to the bottom of the glass and fill with ice. Add lime juice and tequila; top it off with Squirt, and then garnish with a lime wedge.

For a healthier version of the ‘Poloma,’ try it the all-natural way. It’s made with 2 oz. tequila, juice of ½ of a lime, 2 oz. fresh Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice, 3 tablespoons agave nectar, and 4 oz. club soda. Mix everything except the club soda in a shaker with ice, shake very well, and pour into a large highball glass.

Add club soda and ice to fill the rest of the glass up. Stir gently and enjoy. For a more festive drink, make a ‘Pinata;’ it’s made with 1.5 oz. Gold Tequila and pineapple juice. Pour the tequila into a Collins glass filled with ice, fill with pineapple juice, and then garnish with a pineapple wedge.

Your get-togethers don’t need to be boring anymore; create a fun night with some tasty alcoholic cocktails to suit any party.
