Summertime Tequila Cocktails
By FBWorld Team

Summer is the perfect season for Tequila. So to help you savory the long, warm days, here are a couple cocktail recipes featuring Blue Nectar Tequila in re-imagined summer classics.

Blackberry Blue Nectar® Bramble
While the Blackberry Bramble is traditionally made with gin, bourbon is often used instead for a deeper flavor. Blue Nectar Reposado is the perfect alternative with its smooth, light oak wood character.

Blackberry Blue Nectar® Bramble

2 oz. Blue Nectar Reposado
3/4 oz. lemon juice
1 tsp. simple syrup
1/2 oz. blackberry liqueur
3-5 blackberries as garnish
Crushed ice

1. Place all liquid ingredients into a tumbler filled with crushed ice and stir well.

2. Garnish with blackberries

Minted Mule
The Moscow Mule is a refreshing vodka cocktail, though the peppery notes of Blue Nectar Silver make a perfect complement to the spicy ginger beer and smoky Mezcal float.
