Tequila Cocktails

 Tequila is a spirited foundation for many popular cocktails, best known for its role in the classic Margarita. Here's a variety of tequila-based cocktails with the ingredient measurements in milliliters:


  1. Margarita:

    • 50 ml Tequila
    • 20 ml Triple sec (like Cointreau)
    • 20 ml Fresh lime juice
    • Salt for the rim (optional)
    • Lime wheel for garnish

    Rub the rim of the glass with the lime slice to make the salt stick to it. Take a chilled margarita glass and dip it into the salt. Shake the tequila, triple sec, and lime juice with ice and strain into the glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

  2. Tequila Sunrise:

    • 60 ml Tequila
    • 120 ml Orange juice
    • 15 ml Grenadine syrup
    • Orange slice and cherry for garnish

    Pour the tequila and orange juice into an ice-filled glass, and then add the grenadine, which will sink and slowly rise to mix with the other ingredients naturally. Garnish with the orange slice and cherry.

  3. Paloma:

    • 50 ml Tequila
    • 15 ml Lime juice

    • Lemon or lime twist for garnish
