Want some margarita basics? Here’s everything you need to know.
Tequila Blackberry Lemonade
This drink is fantastic for parties because you can blend a big batch in advance. From the blog Real Housemoms comes this fruity, tequila cocktail brimming with blackberries. (Use fresh-picked if you have some bushes near you!)
Grilled Pineapple Margarita
Here is a fun tequila drink from my blog, Hungry Enough To Eat Six! Planks of fresh pineapple are grilled to give them a wonderful smoky-sweetness that’s delicious in a margarita. The grilled pineapple is frozen, then blended with tequila, ice and orange liqueur for a unique and scrumptious cocktail.
Tequila Kiwi Smash
This jewel of a cocktail comes courtesy of the No Spoon Necessary food blog. Fresh and vibrant kiwi combine with cool mint leaves, plus tequila and club soda. The slices of kiwi add flavor and are delicious to nibble on between sips as well.
Strawberry Sriracha Margarita
If you like spicy-sweet cocktails, then this is a really good one for you! This margarita recipe comes from Domestic Fits: fresh strawberries, orange liqueur, tequila—and a dash of fiery sriracha sauce. It’s a fruity drink with some heat that you can make as subtle or intense as you like.

Spicy Pineapple Paloma
This is a unique twist on a classic paloma. The flavors of fresh grapefruit and tequila are still there, along with pineapple soda and a few slices of Serrano peppers. Instead of just salt on the rim, this drink has zesty Tajín—a spice blend of salt, lime and chili peppers.
A traditional mojito cocktail is a blend of rum, mint and lime juice. This recipe from Delicious Everyday is a twist on that, using tequila in place of the rum—preferably anejo aged tequila to give a subtle smokiness to the drink.

Spicy Cucumber Margarita
Here is another drink to try if you’re a fan of fiery cocktails! Slices of fresh cucumber and jalapeños are muddled with tequila and lime juice, plus a little agave nectar for a touch of sweetness.
