  • Make Ahead: You can easily make this cocktail ahead of time for parties and holidays. Double, triple or make as many as you need!

What Kind Of Tequila Should I Use?

You can really use any type of tequila that you like drinking. Obviously we’re not going to use a top shelf, expensive tequila for mixing, but you do want it to be something that you like the taste of.

We like using a reposado tequila which is a tequila that’s been aged in oak barrels. Reposado tequila offers flavors of vanilla, caramel, dried fruits with a toasty finish.

Of course if you like a blanco tequila that works fine in this cocktail recipe, too. Blanco tequila has a lighter, cleaner flavor because it isn’t aged. Fresh cut agave flavors can often be picked up.

Variations

In addition to the flavors we have in this tequila cocktail, you can switch up the flavors to your liking. Try different flavors of pomegranate juice, or even cranberry juice works well. A splash of grapefruit juice, like our popular Paloma Cocktail is a fan favorite.

Fresh basil or oregano will bring out the notes in the tequila nicely, so use whatever you like.
