Cocktails & Tools: Something other than a margarita to try for National Tequila Day…

National Tequila Day may have just passed, but for some this may have been an opportunity to experiment with a spirit that is often viewed as ‘simply a shot’. Although a shot of tequila is a fun pastime, this versatile, Mexican spirit is also ideal for many a cocktail and mixer.

There is a reason that the margarita is the most well-known tequila cocktail. It is a classic and much-loved drink. But there is much more to explore, and in this edition of our short and fun series, Cocktails & Tools, we will take a look at a new Tequila cocktail and all the tools you need to make it!

Each of these drinks will help you beat the heat, and you’ll never be at a loss when it comes to using up your tequila again…not that that’s ever been an issue before.
