Best Tequila and Ginger Ale Recipes

Now, the drink we are going to discuss today may not sound like it is a great mix, but we promise it is worth giving a shot (pun intended). And what is this drink you may be thinking? The drink of the day is Tequila and Ginger Ale! Tequila mixed with ginger ale is a twist on a classic (the Moscow Mule), and many call this mixture a “Mexican Mule.” It is a deliciously spicy, flavorful, and strong cocktail, and Tequila and ginger ale combined will kick your party into gear for the night. Whether you are drinking your Tequila and Ginger Ale at a restaurant with a meal, or at home for a fun night in, we think you should check out some of the different combinations of tequila and ginger ale we have provided below. The following 3 tequila ginger ale mixes are highly recommended to try: 1. Spicy Tequila & Ginger Ale, 2. Tequila & Ginger Ale Pineapple Splash, 3. Ginger Ale Margarita.

1. Spicy Tequila & Ginger Ale

For this deliciously spicy take on Tequila and Ginger ale, we recommend that you use Jose Cuervo Tequila Blanco as your choice of Tequila. Jose Cuervo is a favorite among many Tequila lovers, and it works perfectly with the spicy ingredients that make this drink so delicious.

How to Make:

  • 2.5 ounces of Jose Cuervo Tequila Blanco
  • 1 ounce of Lime Juice
  • 1/2 ounces of Cointreau (orange liqueur)
  • 5 ounces of Ginger Ale
  • 2-4 Jalapeño Slices for taste and garnish
  • 2 Lime Wedges for taste and garnish
  • Glass Mug
  • ¼ cup of Ice

This drink is made by pouring the ¼  cup of ice into a mug. Then, you pour in the Jose Cuervo Tequila Blanco, Cointreau, Lime Juice, and Ginger Ale. If you are feeling adventurous, you can be a bit heavy-handed with the Jose Cuervo Tequila Blanco, and pour up to 3 ounces. Finally, you then mix all the ingredients together, and of course to top it off, you are able to add jalapeno slices for garnish and taste, as well as lime wedges for garnish and taste. And that is how you make a Spicy Tequila & Ginger Ale cocktail.

2. Tequila & Ginger Ale Pineapple Splash

For this interestingly fruity and spicy take on Tequila and Ginger ale, we recommend that you use top shelf Tequila Patròn Silver as your choice of tequila. This choice of Tequila is a great blend with the refreshingly spicy and fruity mix of ginger ale and pineapple.

How to Make:

  • 4 ounces of Tequila Patròn Silver
  • 4 ounces Pineapple Juice
  • 2 ounces Lime Juice
  • 8 ounces of Ginger Ale
  • ¼ cup of Ice
  • 2 Lime Wedges for taste and garnish

This drink is made by pouring the ¼ cup of ice into a glass. Then, you will pour in the Tequila Patròn Silver, Pineapple Juice, Lime Juice, and Ginger Ale over the ice. Make sure to mix all of the ingredients very well, as you want to make sure you have a very smooth cocktail as a result of your efforts. Finally, to top off this deliciously different cocktail, you add the 2 lime wedges for taste and for garnish. There you have it! Your Tequila and Ginger Ale Pineapple Splash.

3. Sparkling Ginger Ale Margarita

For this bubbly and effervescent twist on the typical margarita, we have sparkling ginger ale combined with Tequila, for a deliciously sweet but slightly spicy bubbly Margarita. As far as your Tequila choice for this cocktail, we recommend that your use 1800 Coconut Tequila as we think it is the optimal Tequila for this cocktail. This Tequila blends excellently with the ingredients of the Margarita and compliments the Ginger Ale perfectly.

How to Make:

  • 3 ounces of 1800 Coconut Tequila
  • 3 ounces of fresh Lime Juice
    • 1 tablespoon of Agave
    • 4 ounces of Ginger Ale
    • ¼ cup of Ice

This drink is started off by pouring the ¼ cup of ice into a glass. Then, you will pour in the 1800 Coconut Tequila, the 3 ounces of fresh Lime Juice, the 1 tablespoon of Agave, and the 4 ounces of Ginger Ale. Make sure to take the time and care to either shake or mix these very well together. Lastly, to top off this bubbly Margarita, add an extra splash of the Ginger Ale on top for some extra bubbles. Now you have your perfect Sparkling Ginger Ale Margarita.
