Tequila Blackberry Lemonade

Tequila Blackberry Lemonade is the perfect drink for relaxing during the summer. You can make a lot ahead of time and put them in mason jars for your friends to grab at your next barbecue!

2 oz. silver tequila
6 oz. of lemonade
lemon for garnish and juice
in the bottom of your glass or mason jar muddle (or mash) ¼ cup blackberries in the bottom
top with crushed ice

if not using fresh lemonade, squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice into the drink

Make a quick and easy cocktail with one of winter’s best fruits and enjoy a refreshing Grapefruit Tequila Slammer.

4 ounces fresh grapefruit juice
2 ounces silver tequila
2 ounces lemon lime soda
garnish with additional grapefruit
Add all ingredients to glass with ice. To get it to fizz up and mix, cover top of glass with your hand and give it a good “slam” against the countertop (wood works better than stone if you enjoy drinks free of broken glass).

1.5 oz Resposado Tequila
.75 oz Fresh Lime Juice
.5 oz Orange Curacao (I like to use Cointreau Noir)
.5 oz Orgeat*
Citrus Salt


To make citrus salt, grate the zest of an orange and a lime with a microplane. Stir the zest into salt and let it sit for 10 minutes (to allow the oils from the citrus to coat the salt).
Rim a rocks glass with the citrus salt. Shake the tequila, lime, curacao, and orgeat with ice and strain over ice into the salted glass.
