First time was for a very posh party that I catered in Puerto Vallarta. I was nervous because the guest list included many well to do Mexicans. This drink was the hit of the party. The host tells me that people still talk about that party and This Drink! I used 5 jalapeños to 1.75 Ltr of Tequila, removed the seeds after charring, otherwise it would be too hot, and let the mixture sit overnight, not just an hour. I did not add ice to the mixture, but served it on the rocks with a splash of club soda and a lime disc.rickw230Palm Springs11/22/18

Essential Cocktail Recipes: 30 Best Tequila Drinks

Tequila has long been maligned as the devil’s spirit and treated like a raucous upstart, unwelcome at civilized gatherings. Usually it is ordered in shot form only, and then it is hidden behind the taste of salt and lime. Well, we think that is the worst kind of alcohol abuse and believe that everyone deserves the chance to see that tequila is more than just a painful hangover after an evening you can’t remember. It is every bit as impressive as scotch, just as smooth as vermouth, and deserves love just as much as gin.

Just to show you that there is no circumstances in which tequila can’t be served, from your shotgun wedding to your son’s bar mitzvah (for the adults, mind you) it can be tarted up for a night on the town or dressed down for brunch. We found fruity sipping drinks for watching The Bachelor and some recipes with real cojones that will give you hair on your chest whether you want it or not. Here’s the 30 best tequila cocktails for your drinking pleasure.

Tequila Mockingbird

The Tequila Mockingbird is more than a top-notch pun blending the literary and liquor worlds. It’s also a book. And a cocktail. Look around online, however, and you’ll find multiple recipes for this drink, some varying wildly and containing everything from blue curaçao to crème de menthe.

This recipe comes from Greg Seider, a New York bartender and consultant and the author of “Alchemy in a Glass.” His Tequila Mockingbird is a summery Spicy Margarita variation that fuses the earthy bite of tequila with the fresh, hydrating power of watermelon.

Watermelon is underutilized in cocktails, and it’s easy to see why. Use too little, and the flavor is lost. Use too much, and you dilute your drink. But when the combination of spirit and watermelon balanced with citrus and sweetener hits a stellar note, it’s a delicious duo that goes down in a hurry.

You don’t require a blender to enjoy this drink—a simple muddler is all you need to break down the fruit. Start by muddling the watermelon with jalapeño for a juicy kick of sweetness and green, vegetal spice. Next, shake your liquid ingredients, which include blanco tequila (100% agave is always the right call), fresh lime juice and agave syrup. Fine-strain the contents into your glass to remove any pulp from the fruit, and you’re holding a fragrant, bright red cocktail laced with electrolytes. Make in case of hot weather.

Spicy Blood Orange Margarita

Blood oranges are such a delicious fruit. Take a normal orange and multiply its flavor by two &ndash it&rsquos just a perfect sweetness, almost berry-like, with that delicious orange tang. This is one bold fruit that matches very well with the spiciness of chili peppers and tequila. This spicy blood orange margarita is one memorable cocktail for all of the above. It&rsquos boldly sweet, spicy, and refreshing.

The recipe uses fresh jalapeño peppers as the heat source, but you could choose to use jalapeño simple syrup instead (or even habanero simple syrup if you want something real spicy). See the recipe notes for details and spicy simple syrup recipe links.

9 Homemade Cocktail Mixers Worthy of all Your Summer Drink Recipes

If you’re planning to spend July 4th with a celebratory cocktail in your hand, forget going to the store to buy some cheap, sugary cranberry juice. No, for a good party you’re going to need something a little classier. Homemade cocktail mixers, perhaps? These nine homemade cocktail mixers and drink recipes will all add a little pep to your Fourth of July celebrating–or any other summertime fun you have planned.

1. Make: Ginger Ale

Drink: Ginger Ale with Bourbon

What’s more American than a good bourbon? Bourbon with ginger ale. But you don’t need to buy ginger ale to get the fizzy drink with a kick. Invest in some fresh ginger and make your ginger ale yourself. Then get a good bottle of bourbon and mix away.

2. Make: Lemon verbena infused vodka

Drink: Lemon Verbena Drop

Have some lemon verbena on hand? Use it to infuse vodka and make a new spin on a lemon drop you’ll feel like you’re drinking summer in a glass.

3. Make: Mint simple syrup

The Shortcut Mojito

This one’s called a “shortcut” mojito, because you make a mint infused syrup first, allowing you to skip the muddling part. Perfect if you’re hosting a party and many mojitos need to be made.

4. Make: Sour mix

Drink: Whiskey Sour

Using lemons and limes you can make your own sour mix, then just add whiskey and you’ve got yourself a super simple whiskey sour.

5. Make: Jalapeño infused tequila

Drink: Spicy margaritas

Of all the drink recipes, none of them say “summer” as much as the margarita, and to step things up a notch, make your own jalapeño infused tequila for a spicy version.

6. Make: Hibiscus-lime syrup

Drink: Hibiscus-Tequila Cooler

While we’re on the subject of tequila, let’s move on to a drink that’s just a little more exotic. The Hibiscus-Tequila Cooler is made with a simple syrup concocted with limes and dried hibiscus flours. The result is a red drink that’s sure to please a crowd.

7. Make: Rhubarb shrub

Drink: Spiced rhubarb gimlet

With coriander seeds and pink peppercorn, you get a punchy rhubarb shrub. Then all you need to do is add a little gin and bitters (you can make those yourself too!) and you have yourself a gimlet.

8. Make: Apricot puree

Drink: Apricot bellini

At some point during Fourth of July weekend you’re probably going to end up brunching, and when you do, you’ll want a festive drink. Grab some apricots, make a puree, add a little sparkling wine and you have yourself a tasty bellini.

9. Make: Blackberry syrup

Drink: Blackberry spritzer

Blackberries can easily be turned into a syrup, and once you have that, your options for drink recipes are endless. Make up a batch of blackberry spritzer perhaps?

Jalapeño Tequila Gimlet - Recipes

In celebration of National Margarita Day we are spicing things up with a jalapeño infused tequila margarita that will really heat things up.

A holiday I’m surely game for celebrating is National Margarita Day! This comes at the perfect time since we’ve recently perfected our jalapeño infused tequila margarita that will really spice things up. This cocktail has quickly become one of our go-to happy hour drinks as we like to enjoy it out on the back patio with a heaping bowl of chips and guacamole.

We have our neighbors, Randy & Soraya, to thank for introducing us to the idea of infusing tequila with a handful of jalapeños. When Randy first offered me one of his signature jalapeño margaritas, I wasn’t too quick to raise my hand considering that I have a pretty mild tolerance for spicy things. I have come a long way from the black pepper that I called “spice” in my Wisconsin days, but I’m still not keen on burning lips and an uncomfortable scorching of heat down my throat.

Upon his insistence, I let him pour me the margarita and I absolutely loved it! There was just a hint of spice on the back of your throat but overall the margarita was quite refreshing. Fast forward 4 margaritas later and Sean and I were planning a trip to Costco the next day to buy a bottle of Anejo Tequila and a bunch of jalapeños.

We immediately got to marinating our first bottle of jalapeño infused tequila. We were diligent about shaking the bottle once every day and let it sit for about 4 days total. In general, when it comes to making cocktails in our house, we often don’t buy any pre-made mix and opt for using fresh ingredients when possible. We decided to use our tried & true cocktail recipe for similar fresh citrus margaritas and just used fresh lime juice and agave syrup. The results were spicy, but seriously delicious. The girl who can’t handle spice was hooked.

At any given point, we most likely have a bottle of jalapeño tequila infusing in the outside fridge and it’s quickly become our social cocktail. We’ve made it for family back in Wisconsin and just recently brought it to a friend’s backyard cookout where everyone loved it. Just be aware that the longer you let it infuse, the spicier it will be! Also, we have noticed that the bottom of each tequila bottle is considerably spicier and I often have to add a bit more lime and agave to cool it down a bit or I’m left with a burning sensation on my lips.

Vodka Gimlet

The Vodka Gimlet is not a drink to be toyed with. Unlike its gin counterpart, which can slink and sway beneath a periodic table of botanicals, a good Vodka Gimlet should be two things and two things only: cold and strong.

The Gimlet dates back to the late 18th century, when British sailors needed vitamin C to keep scurvy at bay. Enter limes. The little green citrus was ready to help, but getting sailors to drink the sour juice was a lot easier when it was mixed with liquor. The delicious, medicinal drink has been popular since. But it wasn’t until the vodka boom of the 1970s and ’80s that vodka supplanted gin in the Gimlet. While gin is still the traditional choice—and the spirit itself has earned its way back into drinker’s heart—a good Vodka Gimlet has its charms.

When making the cocktail at home, it’s best to start with ice-cold vodka. So, if you’re not already keeping a bottle in your freezer, throw one in there for safekeeping. Then keep it away from the bottle of Rose’s collecting dust on your bar. The sweet, concentrated lime cordial, because of which many a Gimlet has suffered, is no substitute for fresh-squeezed lime juice and simple syrup. The latter duo create a better, more balanced flavor than what is achievable when using the premixed cordial.

The three-ingredient Vodka Gimlet is easy to assemble, right up there with a Daiquiri and other straightforward shaken cocktails. Make one at home the next time you’re craving a simple, delicious drink. The scurvy prevention is just a bonus.

El Copitas was opened by Artem Peruk and is found in a hidden basement in the heart of Russia, which isn’t the first place you would think of to host one of the world’s best agave bars! Inspired by Mexico, this speakeasy is run by a team of passionate professionals who work with seasonal ingredients and own a fine collection of rare alcohol, tequila and mezcal. However doesn’t come with the most normal success story

When they first opened they were not legally allowed to serve people and also didn’t have any chairs for their customers to sit on. After asking surrounding bars if they could lend just one chair and knowing the right people, they are a fully licensed bar and have climbed to 27th in The World Top 50 Bars.

This unique bar creates a sense of escapism as there are no windows or clocks. It allows you to fully submerge into the experience and forget about the outside world. The is only one table inside the venue which seats 25 customers, which forces strangers to sit togethers and communicate however the goal is to make everyone feel comfortable. There is a bartender at the end of the table making drinks and creating an experiential atmosphere like no other.

One of the most interesting facts about this unique bar is there is only one big concrete table inside which seats 25 guests around. Forcing strangers to sit and communicate with each other with a goal to make everyone feel comfortable and converse – with the bartender at the end of the table making drinks and creating an experience like no other.

The Verde Gimlet is one of the signature cocktails at El Copitas Bar, which was created in the early beginning and is still the most popular cocktail on the menu.
