Mojito Tequila

Today, we will discuss a delicious drink. This drink is the mojito, but with an interesting twistL the mojito is made with tequila instead of with rum. A mojito is typically a very tasty combination of rum, lime, mint, and sparkling water. It is a cocktail that is refreshing, delicious, and suits many different situations. Whether you are having your mojito with a nice evening dinner, or you are having your mojito out at the bar, or even if you are making your mojito at home, it is always a great choice of a cocktail. We are going to provide you with this delicious mojito tequila twist, and here are three recipes provided below that we love:

1. Herradura Tequila Mojito

Give your traditional mojito an update and instead of any old regular rum you might typically add to this delicious beverage, you can add Herradura Tequila for this recipe. This is a delicious yet simple take on the tequila mojito, so be prepared to really enjoy this drink! We recommend this delicious cocktail for pretty much any occasion, but it is nice for a warm evening relaxing out on your patio or at the pool, especially if you are making this drink at home.

Ingredients you will need:

  • ½ Cup crushed ice
  • 1 oz. of Simple Syrup
  • 1 oz. of Lime Juice
  • 5 oz. of Herradura Tequila
  • 5 oz of Sparkling Water
  • 1 cup of Fresh Mint Leaves

How to Make:

Give your traditional mojito an update and instead of any old regular rum you might typically add to this delicious beverage, you can add Herradura Tequila for this recipe. To make this mojito, you will fill a shaker with ice, and add some of the Herradura Tequila, as well as simple syrup and then some lime juice. Get out your shake and shake it up to mix and pour over a glass filled with ice and the 1 cup of mint leaves that you muddled in the glass. You can top it off with a little splash of sparkling water of your choice.

2. Jalapeno Tequila Mojito

Are you a lover of spicy or hot things? Do you enjoy a little kick with your drink. If so, this next recipe is perfect for you: the Jalapeno Tequila Mojito. For the more spicy take on a tequila mojito, we recommend using Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila for the Mojito, as it is a delicious tequila infused with jalapeno flavor. This spicy hot tequila will definitely get your evening going into high gear, and you will wake right-up and be ready to party. The Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila used to make this mojito is also a very different taste than many are used to, but this is part of the intrigue of the drink. The added element of hot with the refreshing combination of the mint from the mojito is a very fun and interesting twist. This is not for those who do not enjoy spicy beverages, but if you like it hot, then we recommend you give this spicy cocktail a try!

Ingredients you will need:

  • ½ Cup crushed ice
  • 5 oz. of Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila
  • 4 oz of Sparkling Water
  • 3 Limes (muddled) to get the juice out
  • 1 Cup of Fresh Mint Leaves Muddled into Mix

How to Make:

This spicy drink is concocted by pouring the ½ cup of the crushed ice into a glass, and then slightly muddling the mint into the glass, so as not to make the drink to strong. Then, you will muddle the 3 limes until you have juiced as much as you can from the limes. Next, you add the Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila and give it a nice 2.5 oz. pour, which we won’t fault you if you are slightly heavy handed and maybe give it a 3 oz. pour, and you are in business with the cocktail. Then, you pour the 4 oz. of sparkling water into the glass, and finally you then mix everything together. There you have it, a yummy and delicious, yet spicy Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila Mojito.

3. The Top Shelf Patron Citrus Mojito

The last tequila mojito on the list of recipes that we have today is a deliciously citrus mojito made with Patron Tequila.  This Mojito is for those who want a top-shelf but fun and different experience with their mojito, as a tequila mojito is already out of the norm. So, we are adding a citrus element to this mojito, to twist up this already twisted take on the mojito. Those who really absolutely want the most authentic mojito possible. And of course, we love Patron here, as it is top-shelf, and we want to give you a great and unique experience for such a great quality Tequila. So, here is how you make this delicious version of the Tequila Mojito.

This citrus twist on the tequila mojito is made by pouring the ½ cup of the crushed ice into a glass, and then as with the other mojitos, slightly muddling the mint into the glass, so as not to make the drink to strong. Next, you add the Patron Silver Tequila, and give it a nice decent 2 oz. pour, which on this one we really won’t blame you if you go for a 3 oz. pour just for fun. Then, you pour the 3 oz. of sparkling water and the 1 oz. of lime juice, and the 1 oz. of orange juice into the glass, and finally you finish once you then mix everything together.
