MXMO: Mexican Lemonade May 11, 2007

Filed under: cocktails,drink of the week,mixology — liquorandlibations @ 11:29 am

Many apologies for the slow posting this week, the rain and gray skies have finally lifted from our fair city, and rather than be at a computer any longer than we have to, we’ve been outside in the park having drinks in the sun.

That being said, this Monday marks MXMO: tequila, and since tequila is a liquor and libations favourite, I’ve come in from the sun long enough to give you a cocktail recipe that you’ll want to be making all summer long.

If you’ve ever had an Irish lemonade, then you won’t be too surprised by this one, but as much as I love Irish whiskey, nothing says summer to me like tequila.

Mexican Lemonade


  • 2oz good tequila (I use silver or blanco for its smoothness)
  • 3-4oz sour mix (make your own, it’s soooooo much better and keeps forever in the fridge)
  • a splash of grenadine
  • a splash of simple syrup
  • soda water

Put all the ingredients except for the soda water into a shaker with ice and mix well. Strain into a Collins glass with ice and top up with soda. Garnish with a lemon or lime wheel.

I would recommend making a pitcher (or two) of these in place of margaritas at your first BBQ of the year. I’m going to make a round of them when we kick off the first game of our croquet season.

    What you ought to do is find a wedding marquee hire that will provide
    you with the cost effective for the money.
    If you find that the area immediately around your house is
    very damp, you can add a gravel and limestone border,
    which will help with drainage. The irritants in the home that can trigger asthma are a lot; cigarette smoke, perfumes, aerosol
    sprays, fumes from cleaning products and paints.
