National Tequila Day is here and you don’t have to ask us twice to get involved! Nothing screams summer quite like a tequila-based cocktail, but don’t just stick to making margaritas, try one of these other super delish drinks!

Tequila Paloma – A personal favourite of ours after trying it at this year’s Taste of London!
Pink grapefruit and lime juice gives this Tequila Paloma a zesty kick. Garnish the rim with salt and a wedge of lime for a simple crowd-pleaser.

Tequila Sunrise – The ‘other’ classic
Capture the taste of relaxed summer holidays spent lounging on the beach with a classic Tequila Sunrise and bring some sunshine to a Saturday evening.

Tequila Pina Del Oro – Taste of the tropics!
A Tequila Pina Del Oro  is laced with pineapple juice and a sage syrup for a refreshing combination of sweet and fruity with light and herby.

Tequila Diablo Rojo – Pretty in pink
This luscious cocktail has a fiery kick from a glug of ginger beer, a citrus hit from a squeeze of lime and a subtle berry sweetness from a measure of crème de cassis. Finish with a scattering of pomegranate seeds for a decadent drink that’s sure to impress.

Negroni – Old school!
Looking for an old school tipple? Mix up a negroni!  Use either tequila, or its close relative mescal, which is made specifically from blue agave cooked on a wood fire.
