Here Are Some Proper Ways To Drink Tequila You Basic Pack Of Savages

It’s safe to assume there’s at least one person in your group who drops a line similar to, “No tequila for me please, the last time I had tequila I ended up on a cruise ship with no less than seven warrants out for my arrest”.

Oh yes, there’s one in every circle.

But, what if I told you that tequila shots are not the optimal way to consume this glorious liquor? Methinks a lot of you basic bitches of Eastwick overlook the actual taste and are more focused on ramming that wedge of lime in your gob for sour relief.

Prepared correctly, tequila can be your new fave drink to savour. Here are a few ways to prepare a killer drink.

1. The Space Margarita

Admittedly, I swiped this recipe from Jose Cuervo’s recipe page, but what can I say? They make a mean cocktail. Plus, they’re all relatively simple.


  • 1 part x Jose Cuervo Especial Reposado Tequila
  • 3 parts x Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix


Chuck ’em in a glass and you’ll be rocketed to the unknown abyss that is space.

2. Tequila Sunset

You’ve heard of the Tequila Sunrise, but have you caught wind of the Tequila Sunset? It turns out it’s an actual drink!


  • 45ml x Jose Cuervo Tradicional Reposado Tequila
  • 15ml x grenadine
  • 100ml x orange juice
  • Ice


Fill up the glass with everything except the grenadine (pour that baby in last). Once it’s all mixed, drizzle the grenadine over the top, and it’s supposed to replicate the sun setting.

I think.
