Bloody Maria

The Bloody Mary is a classic vodka cocktail, but swap out the liquor for tequila and you’ve got a Bloody Maria! This Mexican-style spin on the classic is absolutely worth trying: it’s tangy, spicy, and perfectly seasoned. The tequila brings a bright nuance to the drink, where vodka can get lost.

Ingredients: Tequila, lemon, tomato juice, horseradish, Tabasco, Worcestershire, celery salt

Here’s a must try cocktail for tequila lovers: the Cantarito! This tasty tequila drink is similar to a Paloma, but it’s got more citrus juices like orange, lemon and lime juice. Layer it in a traditional clay cup, and the effect is stunning: it’s a light and refreshing drink that tastes even better sipped out of a cold clay rim. Don’t have one? You can serve it in a highball glass too.

Ingredients: Tequila, orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, grapefruit soda, salt
