10 Tantalizing Tequila Recipes for your Cinco de Mayo

Table of Contents


Watermelon Margarita

Starting off with a margarita that is one of my personal favorites! Made with fresh watermelon juice, tequila, lime juice, and triple sec, it gives the freshest tasting margarita! We also added spicy Tajin seasoning to the rim. This margarita is served on the rocks, but blended would be absolutely delicious!

Grapefruit Paloma

The grapefruit paloma is a zesty and refreshing cocktail featuring the tangy bite of grapefruit, the warmth of tequila, and a splash of lime juice for acidity. Soda water adds a bubbly effervescence, creating a lively and invigorating drink that’s perfect for any occasion

Tangerine Hot Honey Sour

A delicious cocktail that is frothy, tangy, sweet, and spicy all wrapped up into one cocktail!

Red Pepper Margarita

We’ve all had classic, fruity margaritas and even spicy jalapeno margaritas. But, have you had a bell pepper margarita?? it is delicious and great if you don’t love an overly sweet cocktail.

Coconut Margarita

Bring on the island breeze, please!! So, if you like coconuts, if you like margaritas, this is the cocktail for you!

Raspberry Basil Margarita

A sweet and savory margarita! If you like fruity and herbaceous flavors, this one is for you!

Spicy Raspberry Paloma

This cocktail combines sweet and tangy raspberries with the spiciness of jalapeños! Pairs well with some crispy fish tacos at the beach (or pretending you are at the beach.. “Alexa, play beach waves!”)

Aperol Margarita

The zestiness from the lime paired with the sweet/floral notes of the Elderflower liqueur pairs perfectly with the bitterness of Aperol! Oh, and to top it all off, we’re highlighting the citrus by smoking it with our Lemon Peel Smoke Dust to let those tangy notes shine!

Cranberry and Apple Margarita

 If you’re looking for a delicious and refreshing drink to enjoy this weekend, why not give this margarita a try? It’s made with fresh apple cider, giving it a unique flavor that you won’t find anywhere else. If you don’t have apple cider, try with apple juice!

Honey Bee with Tequila

I totally understand that sometimes it is hard to think of drinks with tequila that will highlight it without making just another version of a margarita. I love this drink because the tequila truly shines through and is the star of the show!

Smoked Honey Bee

A buzz-worthy drink for sure! You'll be sure to have all of your friends swarming over to your house with this smoked bee-light!!
