The Best Tequila-Based Summer Sips

Tequila has been around for centuries and continues to stand the test of time due to its diverse flavor profiles and range of intensity. Whether you’re on the hunt for a classic margarita or a craft libation, we’ve mixed together a roundup of the best tequila-based sips alongside a few delicious appetizers to try next time you visit. Don’t worry though… you won’t regret these drinks in the morning!

Tap 42 Craft Kitchen & Bar

Despite countless craft cocktails to choose from, our top pick this summer is the “Don’t Be a Prick” Margarita. This refreshing drink packs a nice punch thanks to its concoction of prickly pear and smooth, herbaceous Cazadores Blanco tequila, which is paired with basil syrup, fresh lime juice and topped off with a basil-salt half rim.

Fun fact: Cazadores Tequila is made from 100% Blue Agave via a seven-step, fully sustainable and zero-wase production process, so you can feel even better about your drink choice!

We recommend pairing this summer sip with Tap 42’s highly addicting Truffle Street Corn.


Get the party started with a spicy kick from Serafina. This marg features Tanteo Tequila infused with fresh jalapeños and Cointreau orange-flavored triple sec liqueur from France, paired with lime juice and agave. The exquisite combination of sweet and sour with a touch of earthy zest will turn anyone into a Jalapeño Margarita fan – especially when it’s made by Serafina’s troupe of top-shelf bartenders (pun intended.)

Tame the marg’s heat by indulging in a refreshing caprese salad complete with delicate slices of fresh mozzarella or burrata, topped with sliced tomatoes, fresh cracked pepper, and a balsamic drizzle topped with basil.

The Cheesecake Factory

If you prefer sweetness over spice and a little something nice, opt for a Strawberry-Infused Margarita. Always served on the rocks, the award-winning, fruit infused Espolòn Tequila is paired with Bacardi Lime and agave to create a perfectly refreshing cocktail that can be enjoyed during brunch or a night out.

Add a plate of Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes to your order for a delicious sweet and savory flavor combination that honors tequila’s Mexican roots.
