Today is National Tequila Day
In honor of celebrating this lovely holiday I thought I would share a couple recipes for drinks with tequila.
1 1/2 oz Tequila
1/2 oz triple sec
dash of lemon or lime juice
3 oz sour mix
lime wedge for garnish
salt or sugar to rim the glass (optional)
- Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Shake well.
If desired, salt the rim of a chilled margarita glass. Pour contents, with ice, into the glass.
Garnish with the lime wedge.
4 oz orange juice
2 oz tequila
1/2 oz grenadine
orange slice for garnish
maraschino cherry for garnish
- Pour the tequila and the orange juice into a highball glass with ice cubes. Stir.
- Slowly pour the grenadine around the inside edge of the glass, it will sink and slowly rise to mix with the other ingredients naturally.
- Garnish with the orange slice and cherry.
