Summertime Tequila Cocktails
By FBWorld Team

Summer is the perfect season for Tequila (and National Tequila Day is 7/24). So to help you savory the long, warm days, here are a couple cocktail recipes featuring Blue Nectar Tequila in re-imagined seasonal classics.

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

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

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.
