Warm summer days can only get better with this refreshing Cherry Lime Tequila Cocktail! This simple summertime drink recipe is made with fresh lime, cherry juice, tequila and 7UP. Perfect for entertaining or a day at the lake!
This is the type of cocktail I like to drink during the warm summer months. This Cherry Lime Tequila Cocktail is simple, refreshing and pretty. It isn’t sickeningly sweet with loads of simple syrups. I cannot take those type of super sweetened cocktails. They make me feel like my teeth are going to jump out of my mouth to escape the saccharine overload!
Okay, maybe I’m being a tad overdramatic. I just prefer a balance of sweet and tangy in my cocktails.
And please, please, please use a good quality tequila. Actually, please use quality alcohol in all of your cocktails. I’m not talking about $50 bottles. But definitely splurge for the mid-range $25-$30 bottles.
I too once sipped on wine coolers and chugged Mad Dog 20/20. But those days are gone. We are better than that now . . . usually. Haha!
With just 4 ingredients this cocktail is perfect for entertaining. Sipping this under an umbrella next to a shimmering pool sounds like heaven to me.
The cocktails made with herb infused syrups and 3-4 specially alcohols or bitters are just not my style. I’m sure they are good and all, but I like to keep it easy when I’m at home. Especially if I’m having a few cocktails and trying to relax. Who wants to slave away for 15 minutes making their cocktail? It’s supposed to be relaxing, right!?!?
Okay, I’m done. I didn’t realize how passionately opinionated I was about at home mixology. ????
