The Unexpected Tequila Cocktails You Can Make With 4 Ingredients or Less

Lauren Powell

Tequila shot? No, thanks. Tequila cocktail? Yes, please! Gone are the days of associating tequila only in a tiny glass accompanied with lemon, salt, and a harsh after-taste. We’re now moving our interests onto the sophisticated tequila types that are the perfect ingredient for the well-deserved after-five cocktail. To prove it, Lee Applbaum, Global Marketing Officer of Patrón Spirits International (a.k.a. the Chanel of tequila) gave us the down low on today's tequila. “Ultra-premium 100% agave tequila, like Patrón, is a more refined drink, on par with a fine scotch or cognac,” he says. “High-quality tequilas are not what you might remember of tequila from years ago.” Scroll down for three simple tequila-based cocktail recipes that will make cocktail hour even sweeter.
