We know people love our fresh-made cocktails to go, but we also know that sometimes it’s fun to shake-up your own cocktails at home to get the party started!
The word tequila sparks thoughts of fun times with family and friends, and with its earthy, sweet flavour, it’s very versatile for making great cocktails. So, here are three of our favourite tequila cocktails using our preferred Codigo 1530 for you to create, try and enjoy at home! 'Tequila!'
Let’s kick things off with a classic margarita….but with a refreshing twist!
Blackberry Basil Margarita
- 1.5 oz Blanco Tequila
- 0.5 oz Triple Sec
- 1 oz Lime Juice
- Basil Leaf
Muddle the blackberries in a Rocks glass. Fill a shaker with ice, add tequila, triple sec, lime juice and agave syrup. Shake well and strain over ice. Garnish with a blackberry and basil leaf. Delicious!
Now you’re feeling good, let’s turn up the volume with our next cocktail recipe.
