Tequila Spritz

A Tequila Spritz is a refreshing and effervescent cocktail that combines the bold flavors of tequila with the lightness of sparkling water and a hint of citrus. It is an ideal choice for a warm day or a festive occasion like Cinco de Mayo. Here’s a simple recipe to create a delightful Tequila Spritz:

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz (60 ml) blanco or reposado tequila (can swap for Mezcal as well)
  • 1/2 oz (15 ml) fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz (15 ml) simple syrup or agave syrup (adjust to your preferred sweetness)
  • 2 oz (60 ml) club soda or sparkling water
  • 2-3 dashes of orange bitters (optional)
  • Ice
  • Lime wheel or wedge for garnish
  • Orange wheel or twist for garnish (optional)

 

Instructions:

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add the tequila, fresh lime juice, and simple syrup or agave syrup to the shaker.
  3. Shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds to combine and chill the ingredients.
  4. Strain the mixture into a glass filled with ice, preferably a highball or Collins glass.
  5. Top the cocktail with club soda or sparkling water, leaving some room for the garnish.
  6. Add a few dashes of orange bitters if desired, to enhance the citrusy flavor.
  7. Gently stir the cocktail to incorporate the soda and bitters.
  8. Garnish with a lime wheel or wedge, and an orange wheel or twist if desired.

For a unique twist, you can also experiment with flavored sparkling water or adding other fruit garnishes like grapefruit or strawberry. Enjoy your refreshing Tequila Spritz responsibly!
