Don Julio Blanco Part Two (Cocktails): Tequila Mojito


For years, tequila has been relegated to either margarita mix or shots off of supple co-eds breasts.

And while we are all for body shots, tequila hasn’t really been given much respect among the cocktail set.

Until now that is. Through sheer power of WILL Cocktails, 365 will force you to think of tequila cocktails as something just as classy as a Manhattan.

Classy.

We call this drink the Tequila Mojito, however it’s more akin to a mint julep in preparation and taste. However, we’re going for something a bit more tropical as its summer. So we’ll just trick you for now.

Tequila Mojito

  • 2 oz Don Julio Blanco Tequila
  • .5 oz homemade mint syrup
  • Mint leaves
  • 1/4 lime
  • Tonic water to top

Combine the mint leaves, lime, and syrup in the bottom of a rocks glass. Muddle well, then top with the tequila and crushed ice. Top with tonic water and serve.

The agave flavor stays strong, but doesn’t overpower the drink. The sweet mint is kept in check by the acidic lime. A well balanced summer drink!

Cheers!
