Are you looking for the healthiest drinks to make your cocktails? If so, then you have to retire some of the recipes that contain added sugars. Here we have a few recipes for you that you must try. And if you love drinks then we recommend you must have a slim drink fridge too. Because slim drinks fridges showcase your beverage and keep them chilled.

Grapefruit Soda and Tequila Cocktail

Mixing grapefruit soda with tequila is a popular way to drink tequila. It is called tequila con squirt in Mexico and becomes an essential drink during summer. When grapefruit soda is mixed with a tequila cocktail, it gives citrusy, bright, and subtly bitter drinks. To prepare this cocktail with the healthiest drink you can use either reposado tequila or a Blanco tequila as a base.

A Blanco tequila will keep your drink crisp and light. However, a reposado tequila will make it more decadent and richer. And a fat wedge of lime and a pinch of salt can be perfect for garnishing this cocktail.

Pineapple Juice and Tequila Cocktail

Both tequila and pineapple juice are made for each other. Pineapple juice is a healthy drink that harmonizes with tequila to create a tropical, grassy, peppery, and vegetal cocktail. Fresh pineapple juice is usually bright and tartest. However, there are different options depending on the sweetness available when it comes to canned pineapple.

To prepare a cocktail using pineapple juice, you can use any tequila either it is a Blanco, Anejo, or reposado as a base. But the favorite bottling that we will recommend to you is Calle 23’s Blanco tequila. Because it will add its vibrant tropical fruit-forward flavors to your drink.

Orange Juice and Tequila Cocktail

You can prepare a healthy drink using orange juice, silver tequila, and lime juice. Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker, fill it with ice and shake until chilled. Garnish your cocktail glasses with salt and lime wedge and fill them with about 2/3 leaving room for sparkling water on the top. Sparkling water will add fizz and effervescence to your drink without adding sugar and calories.

You can use both fresh and bottled orange juice to get this highly quaffable and refreshing drinking. But before using fresh juice always remember to whip air into it. It will give you a creamy and fluffy cocktail.

Agave Syrup and Tequila Cocktail

You can get old-fashioned tequila without the bitters by mixing these two ingredients. Just take a mixing glass, ice, agave syrup, and a bar spoon. Add two parts agave, one part water, and your favorite tequila. Mix them and enjoy a delectable drink. A Blanco tequila as the base for this drink works but Anejo and reposado work best due to more depth and richness of flavor.

You can also add lime juice to this cocktail. Take a small dish, pour some kosher salt into it. Take an old-fashioned glass and rub lime over the half rim and dip it into the kosher salt. Then shake all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and strain into the glass you have prepared already. Garnish it with a lime slice and enjoy.

Soda and Tequila Cocktail

Besides the Margarita, you can say that this two-ingredient cocktail is the most popular. You can use any soda to prepare this drink, but seltzer is preferred over others as it contains a high mineral content. You can use either reposado tequila or Blanco tequila to mix with soda.

To prepare this cocktail, you need about 2 ounces of reposado or Blanco tequila. Moreover, you need ½ ounce of lime juice and 3 to 4-ounce club soda. For garnishing, you need a lime wedge or wheel. Gather the ingredients, fill a highball glass with ice, add tequila and lime juice, top it with soda, and stir. Garnish it with a lime wheel or wedge and enjoy.
