Have a party, make some cocktails, have fun; with tequila cocktails, you can make any party come to life. A ‘Tequila Shooter’ is made with 1.5 oz. tequila, pinch of salt, and a lime wedge. Hold lime wedge with left hand, lick the back of your left hand and sprinkle on that spot; hold the shot of tequila in right hand; lick the salt, down the tequila, and then immediately squeeze the lime wedge into your mouth. A ‘Tequila Slammer’ is fun too; it’s made with a rocks glass, equal parts tequila and a carbonated beverage (usually 7 Up), and Ginger Ale. Leave about a 5th of the glass empty to allow the drink to fizz, then hold your hand over the top of the glass and slam it onto a hard surface to mix it; slamming it will release gas bubbles causing it to foam a lot. Drink immediately after for best result.
Feeling like a spa day is fun; make a cocktail to match that feeling. A ‘Tequila Spa’ is made with 1.5 oz. Herradura Tequila Blanco, 5 seedless red grapes, 2 lime wedges, 1.5 tsp. agave nectar, and 2 slices of kiwi or cucumber for garnish. Muddle all of the ingredients; add ice, shake, and then pour into a short cocktail glass. Garnish with the cucumber or kiwi. A ‘Tequila Sunrise’ is delicious and sophisticated; it’s made with 1 ¼ oz. tequila, 4 oz. orange juice, ¼ oz. Crème de Cassis, and ¼ oz. Grenadine. Pack glass with ice; pour tequila, then orange juice, and then the Grenadine slowly. Float the Crème de Cassis on top. For an easy drink, make a ‘Tequila Sunset.’ It’s made with 1 part tequila and 2 parts grapefruit juice over ice. Mix and enjoy.
