Add Some Kick to Your Summer Drinks: Tequila Berry Cocktails

Fresh summer berries and sweet flavored tequila might not be your go-to cocktail pairings. But when it comes to your summer sippers, you'd be surprised at how delicious these two forces can be when combined. 

Tequila is the perfect summer liquor, but it goes way beyond just a standard margarita. It pairs perfectly with seasonal fruit and some club soda and sweeteners for crisp and refreshing cocktails. Beyond the standard silver and gold tequila, there are some delicious fruit-infused tequilas that really make your cocktails stand out.

In addition to their signature jalapeno tequila, our friends at Tanteo also have a tropical tequila, which is perfect for your summer cocktails. Check out some of our favorite summer berry recipes below, and get inspired to mix and match some fun, fruity ingredients for your perfect summer drink!
