The Tequila Squeeze!

I've been having so much fun trying new drink recipes using Sauza Tequila. They are one of the sponsors this month in the Allstar Brand Ambassador Program. Forgive me for not having the proper shaped stemware for these drinks! I used martini glasses, wine glasses and a water goblet! Oh well, it still tastes the same no matter what kind of glass is used!

Sauza sent me and all the other brand ambassadors, this lovely bottle of their 100% Blue Agave tequila to use in their drink recipes! I love the smooth flavor of this tequila! And the aroma when I first opened the bottle was so different from the generic tequilas I usually buy! This Sauza tequila was very herbaceous. It's scent and flavor reminded me of fresh chopped thyme! That is just my opinion! I loved it!

I tried the Sauza tequila in two of Sauza's drink recipes! This first drink was called Rosemary - Lemon Margarita And since this tequila already reminded me of fresh thyme, I decided to add it to the drink instead of rosemary! Also I may have mentioned it a few times in other blog posts that I'm not a fan of rosemary! I never thought to use herbs in cocktails before seeing this Sauza recipe, but I will be doing that more often because it just adds a nice little unique taste!

And this next drink is called Merry Mango Sauza-Rita.
                       This drink was tart and fruity with a nice kick!


 I truly enjoyed both of these cocktails! They were light, fruity and very refreshing!

Go to the recipes and see how to make them for yourself! You won't be disappointed!

But I wasn't done having fun with Sauza tequila yet! I decided to create my own cocktail! My creation is called 'The Tequila Squeeze'!
 My foodie friend Jennifer Baker gave me that drink name because
I had no idea what to name it!
Jennifer is a brand ambassador and also and a blogger!
Check out what she's been up to on her blog called
House of Frolic and Mirth. Thank you Jennifer for your creative input!

 This drink has a slight sweet almond essence with a little fizz and citrus flavor!
It wasn't a strong drink, but it wasn't wimpy either!

Stir together the tequila, almond liqueur, diet lemon/lime soda and fresh lemon juice.
Fill a cocktail glass half way with crushed ice.
Pour mixture over ice and garnish with the lemon slice.
Sip & Enjoy!



  1. I think the stemware you used was perfect! We always drink our margaritas out of a martini glass. These all look great Lillian and I especially love your creation. Looks yummy!

  2. Thank you so much Valerie! This was a fun assignment! I'll be sharing these cocktails with my neighbors this Sunday! I can't wait! =)

  3. Whoa… This also one of my favorite cocktail drinks…
