The Perfect Tequila Cocktail For Summer

19th Jun 2015 / By Guest Contributor

My younger sister recently became engaged and to celebrate she hosted an outdoor party with our family and her new in-laws. It was a perfectly warm day for an outdoor event and to top if off, her in-laws had the most delicious cocktails ready to go. After taking a big sip, I immediately asked her fiance what was in them and was pleasantly surprised to hear they used tequila since it’s not usually my libation of choice…especially on hot Summer days! I was amazed how the flavor was so refreshing and light that I couldn’t get enough. It was similar to a Paloma but with a fruity/spicy twist! In honor of National Tequila Month, I thought it would be fun to share this recipe with our readers so that you can recreate it for your gatherings this Summer. Enjoy!


  • 2 oz of Blanco or Reposado Tequila
  • 3 oz of fresh lemonade
  • 3 oz of sparkling grapefruit soda
  • 1/4 of fresh fruit (berries, watermelon, pineapple ect.)
  • 1/4 of lime
  • 1 sprig of rosemary for garnish
  • dash of Tajin (optional – for salt & spice)

Fill your glass half way with ice and add fresh fruit of your choosing. Pour Tequila & lemonade over ice. Add fresh fruit and top with sparkling grapefruit soda. Squeeze in lime and stir. Garnish with rosemary sprig and add a dash of Tajin to top if you like salt & spice. Enjoy!
