This Tequila Limeade is a refreshing tequila and seltzer cocktail recipe that can be made in seconds! Fresh mint is what really sets this drink apart!
And what better to make than a cocktail with tequila? I looked around at a few and came up with this Tequila Limeade.
I saw a few of these tequila drinks online but most of them looked too sweet for my taste. With about 40 grams of sugar in the limeade, I’m not thinking that you need to add simple syrup or agave.
So I didn’t.
And I also didn’t add 7UP or Sprite – because again, it’s sweet enough. But if you like your cocktails on the sweeter side then you can definitely mix the tequila and sprite or 7UP.
I think in the end of all the taste testing and re-mixing, I came up with the perfect combination for this Tequila Limeade drink. White tequila, limeade, mint and seltzer. That’s it – it’s totally refreshing, not too strong, but strong enough.
Also if you’re looking for a low carb tequila cocktail? This is the tequila drink for you! Swap out the limeade for sugar-free limeade or use fresh lime juice and an artificial sweetener…zero carbs.
That’s right people, a zero carb cocktail that tastes amazing.
Get yourself cocktail shaker and add in four or five mint leaves with some crushed ice. Add in the tequila and the limeade (not the seltzer yet) and shake really good so that you break up those mint leaves in there.
Strain into a high-ball glass over more crushed ice and top off with seltzer.
As far as summer tequila cocktails go this Tequila Limeade is a home run. But I can tell you that we make the low carb version of this tequila drink recipe all the time.
Something about drinking tequila just turns any night (or day) into a party. Tequila is a versatile alcohol that you can do so much more than just tequila shots with a lime or make margaritas with.
Not that there’s anything wrong with margaritas or tequila shots, but do try and explore making some more tequila drink recipes like this one!
A tequila such as 1880 Tequila silver works really well in this cocktail recipe! 1800 Tequila Silver has a smooth and clean flavor that works perfectly with this drink.
