Iced Teaquila Cocktail Recipe

I’ve always been a big fan of finding fresh and exciting ways to incorporate tequila into my regular cocktail rotation.

So when I heard about the iced teaquila cocktail, I was anxious to give it a try.  As the (somewhat cheesy) name suggests, it’s a drink that combines tea and tequila to create a cool and crisp porch sipper.

How to Make an Iced Teaquila

There are really two ways you can go about making a Mexican iced tea that qualifies as a teaquila.  It really boils down to how many drinks you’re wanting to prepare.

If you’re only after a serving or two, you can make this drink cocktail style and combine ingredients into a shaker, then strain into a tall chilled glass that’s filled with ice. Skip to the bottom for the cocktail style recipe!

On the other hand, you can also make a bigger portion to be chilled and served in a pitcher if you’re wanting to brew this one up for a summer get together.

Now, if you’re wanting to make a larger batch to chill and serve out of a pitcher, there are a couple of modifications I like to make to the recipe.

What Goes Into a Teaquila?

Here’s what you’ll need to make the iced teaquila if you want to make a big batch (6 drinks) over the stove:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1 cup black tea, brewed
  • 12 oz tequila (we use Patrón Silver for this recipe)
  • Lemon twists or slices to garnish

Put sugar and water together in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Stir until sugar is dissolved and bring mixture to a light boil, then remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature.

Then add the lemon juice and stir.

From there, combine the sugar/water/lemon syrup with the agave nectar, black tea, and tequila in a large pitcher.  Prepare 6 tall glasses and fill with ice.  Pour the teaquila into each glass and garnish with lemon.  Serve and enjoy!
