Margarita:

Bezuidenhout’s tasty recipe for this classic calls for just four ingredients: tequila, fresh lime juice, agave nectar and water. Click here for the full recipe.

Paloma:

This is one of the most refreshing drinks we know of. You’ll be enjoying the combination of tequila, grapefruit soda and a pinch of salt all spring and summer long. Click here for the full recipe.

Spiced Old Fashioned:

While we usually make this standard using American whiskey, Bezuidenhout proves that it also works well with aged tequila—especially when you add hot chile pepper. (And it’s the perfect concoction if you’re watching the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.) Click here for the full recipe.
