Tequila is good for more than just Martinis. Did you know that there was a way to combine the fabulous taste of chocolate with Tequila? Here are 10 different Tequila mixes you have to try before the summer is over.
1. Bloody Mary mix.
Swap out the vodka for tequila, and have yourself a Bloody Maria instead.
2. Apple juice.
2 ounces tequila + 4 ounces green or red apple juice + a dash of lemon juice = delicious.
3. Chocolate and espresso.
Mix 1.5 ounces chocolate-infused tequila or liqueur (such as Patron XO Café Incendio) + 1 ounce milk + 3 brandy-soaked cherries for a drink that tastes like a Milky Way in a glass.
4. Pineapple juice.
1 ounce tequila + 4 ounces pineapple juice + 1 squeeze lime juice = new twist on the Cinco Herradura.
5. Green grapes.
2 ounces tequila + 4 ounces green apple juice + 4 ounces green grape puree + pomegranate syrup.
1 ounce tequila + 4 ounces grapefruit juice.
2 ounces tamarind juice or concentrate + 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon + 1 ounce lemon juice + 1 ounce lime juice + 1 ounce tequila.
8. Carrot juice.
Mix 1 ounce tequila + 4 ounces carrot juice + a pinch of ginger + a splash of agave nectar = a low-cal, delicious drink. Sounds a little weird, but trust — it’s tasty.
9. Blood oranges.
2 ounces blanco tequila + 2 ounces blood orange puree + 1 ounce cherry liquor.
10. Coffee liqueur.
2 ounces blanco tequila + 1 ounces Kahlua = new take on White Russian.
