Simple Tequila Drink Recipes:
Probably the most popular way to consume this Mexico classic is by taking tequila shots with both limes and salt. Make your way down to your local grocery store and grab a bottle of Jose Silver or if you are feeling generous, a bottle of Jon Julio. Just be sure the chase your shot with some salt and lime to make it go down easy! The next simple tequila drink and a very popular one are margaritas. This mix of agave syrup, limes, and tequila are a perfect way to start your morning off right. Blending the drink with ice will call for a refreshing slushy drink but either way gets the job done. For those feeling a little fancier, grab a bloody mary mix and mix it with tequila making yourself a Bloody Maria. Making your own Bloody Mary mix can make this simple tequila drink taste way better and will have people asking for your recipe. Here are two simple tequila drink recipes that are some of our personal favorites.

- 1 Cup Tequila
- 1 Large Cucumber (Seeded)
- 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 tsp Tapatio
- 1 Tsp Grounded Pepper
- 2 Cloves of Pressed Garlic

Mix all these in a blender to get yourself a Bloody Maria and garnish with your personal favorite. If you want to throw it back a bit (or are a huge Kurt Russell fan), here is a classic drink that will give people a little throwback.

Mix all these and top off with your favorite garnish such as an orange slice or pineapple hunk.
