Think margarita but with a healthy, bright, zesty, bubbly twist. This Tequila Fizz Cocktail is seltzer-forward with lots of lime juice. With just a hint of agave to sweeten things up, this Tequila Fizz is a nice break from those overly sweet margaritas that, yes, taste amazing but always yield an inescapable headache.
Tips on how to make a Tequila Fizz:
- If possible, I recommend using a cocktail shaker. This way, the agave, lime juice, and tequila, are mixed well before topping with seltzer water.
- First and foremost, use your favorite tequila. Personally, I’m a big fan of Casa Migos (not sponsored), but to each their own! This recipe works best with tequila blanco.
- Make sure to use fresh lime juice. This way, not only is your cocktail tasting fresher and zestier but you also have a garnish to top it with!
- Use a fun glass! My favorite are these hand-blown Mexican glasses that have a blue rim, they’re beautiful!
