Five Must-Try Winter Tequila Cocktails

Many people think of tequila as the perfect beverage for drinking while lying on the beach under the sun. While a margarita on a warm summer’s day is hard to beat, tequila is a versatile drink that can be great in cool weather too. If you are looking for some new ways to enjoy tequila this winter, you’ve come to the right place. Consider mixing up a few of these recipes for a cool weather cocktail this season.

The French Intervention

If you are a cognac drinker or simply a fan of a more full-bodied liquer, The French Intervention is the cocktail for you. This drink combines elderflower liqueur, bitters, and of course, tequila. This delicious drink brings together the best flavors of France and Mexico. You’ll enjoy this tasty twist on two classic flavors!

Champagne Margaritas

Even though the New Year is already here, that doesn’t mean champange season is over! If you’re a fan of bubbles and tequila, this is the beverage for you. Mix sparkling wine or champagne with tequila, triple sec, and lime for a little extra flair on a classic margarita. This is an optimal beverage for parties, a ladies night in, or date night with your significant other.

The Winter Paloma

Pomegranates and cranberries are common flavors during the winter, so why not incorporate them into your tequila cocktails? This beverage has been described as in-between a margarita and a Moscow mule, creating a refreshing and bubbly drink perfect for wintertime. Combine reposado tequila, cranberry juice, and pomegranate juice and top off with soda water for a delicious end of day treat.

The Mid-Winter Margarita

If you are craving a margarita but are interested in a cold-weather twist on this classic recipe, the mid-winter margarita may be the drink for you. Incorporating a novel twist with grapefruit juice and chili salt, this unique cocktail is a perfect beverage for a tequila drinker with a sense of adventure.

Sip It Neat

For tequila purists, sipping tequila neat might be the best way to warm up on a cold winter day. Our Anejo and Extra Anejo tequilas are perfect for sipping and will warm you up from the inside out with their smooth, crisp flavors. This will help you experience the taste of tequila without any mixers or other flavors. With fine sipping tequila, be sure to skip the salt and lime!
