If you’re interested in trying classic and inventive tequila drinks on this day, you’ve come to the right place. Here are the best tequila cocktails for World Tequila Day!

Spicy Grapefruit Sour Paloma

 Spicy Grapefruit Sour Paloma

The Paloma is a classic go-to for tequila cocktails. Traditionally, they’re made with grapefruit soda or a soda de toronja, and tequila blanco. But, there are many takes on this classic that use refreshing citrus and, like this cocktail, some spice. This Spicy Grapefruit Sour Paloma is citrusy, refreshing, light, and has a little bit of a kick to it — perfect for World Tequila Day! 


  • 2 ounces of the Sombrero Negro Gold.

  • 1 ounce grapefruit juice

  • 1 ounce lime juice

  • ½ ounce jalapeño simple syrup

  • 1 egg white


  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. 

  2. Shake hard to chill and fully combine all ingredients. 

  3. Strain out ice, and shake hard again. 

  4. Strain into a glass, and enjoy!

Hibiscus Margarita

Hibiscus Margarita

The hibiscus margarita is a lovely, refreshing spin on the classic margarita cocktail we all know and love. It comes in rich, vibrant color and a nice tangy bite so it’s sure to make an impression at any dinner or party! Plus, it’s extremely easy to make — you only need four ingredients! 


  • 2 ounces tequila — we recommend using a blanco tequila like our Tequila Corralejo Blanco.

  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1 ounce orange-flavored triple sec

  • 1 ounce hibiscus simple syrup


  1. Add all your ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice.

  2. Shake vigorously for about 20 seconds.

  3. Strain your cocktail onto a rocks glass with ice. Enjoy!

Red Hot Chili Pepper

Tequila and the heat of chilis are a match made in heaven — which you already know from our Spicy Grapefruit Sour Paloma! But, this cocktail delivers more of a serious punch than our last recipe. And, adding in a touch of pineapple and lime citrus, you’ve got a very strong cocktail on your hands. It’s not for the faint of heart, but it definitely is a great option for the adventurous!  


  • 1 ½ ounces of our Mezcal Se Busca Reposado.

  • 1 ½ ounce of fresh pineapple juice

  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice

  • ½ ounce agave nectar

  • 1 small red chili pepper

  • Mixed salt (for the rim)


  1. Crush your chili pepper until it is in fine pieces. Mix with salt.

  2. Get a coup glass or rocks glass. 

  3. Cover the rim of a coupe glass with the mixed salt. 

  4. Combine all ingredients in a chilled cocktail shaker.

  5. Shake well until fully combined.

  6. Double strain into the glass, and drink up!

Spring Flora

Light, tasty, and fruity, this tequila cocktail is perfect for sipping on a hot afternoon. This floral mix contains Aperol, watermelon, hibiscus, rosewater, lime juice, and, of course, blanco tequila. And, you can garnish it with grated chocolate for some extra depth and sweetness!

  • ⅓ ounce Aperol

  3. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

  4. (Optional) garnish with grated chocolate, and enjoy! 

La Mula

Do you love Moscow Mules? Then this tequila cocktail is the one for you. We think of the smoky, deep-flavored La Mula as a sort of “level-up” to everything we love about a good Moscow Mule. Plus, the added kick of fresh citrus adds a refreshing finish to the cocktail. 


  • 1 ½ ounce Añejo tequila — like our Cenote Premium Añejo.

  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice

  • ½ ounce ginger liqueur

  • 3 slices of fresh jalapeño
