Hattiesburg, MS

Summer will be here before we know it. As the warmest months of the year approach, a refreshing cocktail featuring your favorite tequila can be the perfect addition to your sunny afternoon on the porch.

Here’s a list of four tequila cocktails that are sure to hit the spot.

Passion Cocktail (from

This pretty pink drink is best described as a tequila spin on a classic vodka cocktail, the Cosmopolitan. For this recipe for two, you will need:

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 3 ounces cranberry juice
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 2 splashes brandy-based orange liqueur
  • Lime slices, for garnish

Add your tequila, cranberry and lime juices to your cocktail shaker with a generous scoop of ice. Shake the mixture well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Add a splash of your orange liqueur to each. Garnish with lime, serve and enjoy!

Oaxacan Old Fashioned

A modern classic in the cocktail world, the Oaxacan old fashioned includes tequila as well as mezcal. As the name might suggest, it was inspired by the traditional old fashioned, which is made with whiskey and a base combination of bitters and sweetener.

This blend really helps to showcase the featured liquor. To make this drink, you will need:

  • 1 1/2 ounces reposado tequila
  • 1/2 ounces mezcal
  • 1/4 ounce agave nectar
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • Orange peel, for garnish

Pour your agave, bitters, mezcal and tequila over light ice. Stir well for about 20 seconds to fully intertwine ingredients. Twist your orange peel over the drink and add the rest as garnish.


A favorite in Mexico, this tequila cocktail is named after the small clay cup drinks in which the drink is served. The cantarito has the same base ingredients as a classic paloma, but the added citrus makes it that much more refreshing and perfect for summertime.

To mix your own cantarito, you will need:

  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce orange juice
  • 4 to 6 ounces grapefruit soda, to taste
  • Lemon, lime or orange wedge, for garnish
  • Coarse salt (for optional rim)

If desired, wet the rim of your Collins glass with a citrus wedge and roll in salt. Add your tequila, lemon, lime and orange juices. Add ice to fill. Top the mixture with your grapefruit soda and garnish with a citrus wedge.

Cadillac margarita

Why settle for a regular margarita when you could have the ultimate one? The gold color and citrus bite of this cocktail makes it a perfect addition to your summer lineup.

To upgrade your margarita, you will need:

  • 1 1/2 ounces premium reposado tequila
  • 1 ounce premium brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier)
  • 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Lime wedge (for optional rim)
  • Coarse salt (for optional rim)
  • Lime wheel or wedge (for garnish)

If desired, wet the rim of your rocks glass with your lime wedge and roll in salt. In a shaker, add your tequila, orange liqueur, lime and ice. Shake well and strain into your rimmed glass. Add ice, garnish with your lime wheel or wedge and enjoy!
