Cocktails & Tools: National Tequila Day

Summer is in full swing, the heat is blistering, and the cocktails are (hopefully) flowing. What better time to celebrate National Tequila Day? Many people have a love-hate relationship with tequila, but as long as you haven’t overdone it on the tequila slammers, we think that it’s a rewarding and underrated spirit to use in a wide range of cocktails.

So, to celebrate tequila’s big day (Sunday 24th July), we’re taking you through two of the classics, along with tools from the Beaumont range to help you prepare and serve them quickly, beautifully and efficiently…

Tequila Sunrise

  • 2 tsp grenadine
  • Ice
  • 50ml tequila
  • 1 tbsp triple sec
  • 1 large orange, juiced
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 cocktail cherry



  • Pour the grenadine into the base of a tall glass and set aside.
  • Fill your cocktail shaker with ice and add the tequila, triple sec and fruit juices.
  • Shake until the outside of the shaker feels cold.
  • Add a few ice cubes to the serving glass then carefully strain the cocktail into it, trying not to disturb the grenadine layer too much.
  • Add more ice if needed to fill the glass then garnish with a cherry on your garnish pick.



  • Ice
  • 50ml tequila reposado
  • 25ml lime juice
  • 20ml triple sec
  • Salt
  • 2 lime wedges


  • 3 Part Glass Rimmer – The ultimate tool if you’re looking at serving lots of Margaritas throughout the evening – allowing you to deliver that perfect salty rim every time.
  • Jigger
  • Shaker
  • Strainer
  • Lime Wedger – Don’t mess around cutting lime wedges one by one, get a wedger and vastly reduce prep time.


  • Use your rimmer to apply lime juice and salt to the rim of your glass.
  • Fill cocktail shaker with ice, then add the tequila, lime juice and triple sec.
  • Shake until the outside of the shaker feels cold.
  • Strain the mix into the prepared glass over fresh ice.
  • Garnish with a wedge of lime.
