BEST Reposado cocktails to try!

Here are the top tequila cocktails! There’s something for everyone, from the classic margarita to the Mexican mule and tequila sunrise.

1. Patrón Reposado Paloma

I believe the better the Reposado, the better the Paloma. Patrón tequila is the star of this Paloma cocktail! Served with lots of ice, the drink is topped with splashes of lemon-lime and club soda that is sure to refresh. 

Easy Recipe:
In a shaker filled with ice, combine 2 oz Patrón reposado tequila, 1 oz grapefruit juice, 1/2 oz lime juice, and 1/2 oz simple syrup. Shake until chilled and strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Top with grapefruit soda and garnish with a lime wedge.

2. Rosita

Easy Recipe: In a mixing glass filled with ice, combine 1 1/2 oz reposado tequila, 3/4 oz Martini Bianco sweet vermouth, 3/4 oz dry vermouth, and 1/4 oz Campari. Stir until chilled and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist. Enjoy your Rosita Cocktail!

3. Cadillac Margarita

Easy Recipe: In a shaker filled with ice, combine 1 1/2 oz reposado tequila, 1/2 oz Grand Marnier, 1 oz fresh lime juice, and 1/2 oz agave nectar. Shake until chilled and strain into a salt-rimmed glass filled with ice. Garnish with a lime wheel.

4. Reposado Old-Fashioned

Just like the classic old-fashioned, this Reposado drink is STRONG, because a double shot of tequila is the main ingredient.

Easy Recipe: In a mixing glass, combine 2 oz reposado tequila, 1/4 oz agave nectar, and 2 dashes of Angostura bitters. Add ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with an orange peel and a cherry.

5. Reposado Manhattan

Swap in Reposado for the whiskey in this spin on the classic drink! The Repo shines in this cocktail (use orange bitters.) I’ve experimented using Amaro Nonino instead of sweet vermouth and it still holds up.

Easy Recipe: In a mixing glass, combine 2 oz reposado tequila, 1 oz sweet vermouth, and 2 dashes of Angostura bitters. Add ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a cherry.

6. Mexican Martinez

You can make a Martinez with reposado tequila in lieu of gin. The Mexican Martinez is a bold blend of Reposado tequila and classic Martini ingredients James Bond would have ordered.

Easy Recipe: In a mixing glass filled with ice, combine 1 1/2 oz reposado tequila, 1 oz sweet vermouth, 1/2 oz orange curaçao, and 2 dashes of Angostura bitters. Stir until chilled and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge or twist.

7. Cantarito

Cantarito cocktails are traditionally served in a clay cup of the same name. This drink features Gran Centenario reposado tequila.

Easy Recipe: In a shaker filled with ice, combine 2 oz reposado tequila, 1 oz fresh lime juice, 1 oz fresh grapefruit juice, 1/2 oz agave nectar, and a pinch of salt. Shake and strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Top with 2 oz of grapefruit soda and stir gently. Garnish with a grapefruit wedge and a salt rim (optional).

8. La Perla

La Perla is a reposado tequila aperitif that mixes sherry, tequila, and pear liqueur for a sophisticated libation.

Easy Recipe: In a shaker filled with ice, combine 1 1/2 oz reposado tequila, 3/4 oz fresh lime juice, 1/2 oz agave nectar, and 1/2 oz absinthe. Shake until chilled and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

9. Tequila Sour

Make this easy reposado tequila Sour at home. It’s a twist of the classic Sour cocktail.

Easy Recipe: In a shaker filled with ice, combine 2 oz reposado tequila, 3/4 oz lemon juice, 3/4 oz simple syrup, and 1 egg white. Shake until frothy and strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.

10. Bloody Maria

The best Bloody Maria I’ve ever tasted was with a Don Julio tequila. It’s a Bloody Mary with a Mexican twist, featuring reposado tequila and spicy tomato juice.

Easy Recipe: In a shaker filled with ice, combine 2 oz Don Julio tequila, 4 oz tomato juice, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1/2 oz Worcestershire sauce, and a dash of hot sauce. Shake until chilled and strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Garnish with a celery stalk and a lime wedge.
