Tequila is one of my favorite types of liquor, and I’m not alone. Many people enjoy its unique flavor and the feeling of warmth that it brings. The perfect drink to enjoy during the winter, tequila cocktails are suitable for all occasions and events.
The most classic of these winter tequila cocktails is the margarita with its citrusy tang. But there are plenty of different kinds of winter tequila cocktails, and I’ll show you some of the best!
Check out my list of the best winter tequila cocktails, suitable for lively holiday parties or casual post-dinner sipping.
The pomegranate in this Sparkling Tequila Pomegranate and Blood Orange Cocktail gives the drink a fruity, sweet, yet earthy flavor that makes the beverage much more dynamic.
The blood orange flavor adds a hint of tartness, making this drink perfect for those who don't like overly sweet drinks. I love serving this cocktail to my guests during winter holiday parties because it stands out but is still agreeable to most tastes.
Who says a tequila cocktail only has to incorporate tequila? This Winter Tequila Cocktail steps it up a notch by calling for both tequila and bourbon, making for a strong, bold drink any holiday party guest will remember.
The orange juice, bitters, and zest work together to brighten the strong liquor flavors, and the cinnamon works well with the vanilla and caramel notes of bourbon.
A Tequila Chai Hot Toddy is the perfect winter warmer for any cold night. This comforting hot toddy has all the usual components like water tea and honey but uses chai tea for a wintery warmth and orange juice instead of lemon juice for sweeter notes.
The combination of spicy chai, sweet honey, and orange with tequila is unique, and I can't help but want to curl up in a blanket when sipping on one of these.
Winter at Last is a complex beverage that will impress party guests if you are willing to shake it up for that many people! I prefer to drink this with just a few friends, as there are a few more steps than your normal party cocktail.
This recipe even calls for adding blue food coloring to the Citronge to achieve the full effect.
A Frostbite is a unique beverage that incorporates spicy Blue Curaçao, chocolatey White Crème De Cacao, and a heavy cream for a gorgeous result in both taste and style.
This drink is fantastic for any winter occasion, as the combination of spices and chocolate will have everyone talking about it. I love serving this with a festive garnish, such as a Maraschino cherry.
I have always had a deep interest in the restaurant and bar industry. My restaurant experience began in 1997 at the age of 14 as a bus boy. By the time I turned 17 I was serving tables, and by 19 I was bartending/bar managing 6-7 nights a week.
In 2012, after a decade and a half of learning all facets of the industry, I opened my first restaurant/bar. In 2015, a second location followed, the latter being featured on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
