Tequila Cocktails: Over 40 tequila and mezcal-based drinks from around the world

We rated this book:


Tequila Cocktails by Jesse Estes is a short book that contains over forty tequila and mezcal cocktail recipes. Though the alcohol is focused on tequila, there is a wide variety of recipes. Estes includes classics such as margaritas, palomas, and mules, while also including an assortment of creative cocktails, including Ministry of Love.

Overall, the collection of tequila and mezcal cocktails is inspiring and exciting. As a tequila lover, I could nearly taste the cocktail in my mouth as I was studying each recipe. One cocktail that stood out to me was the Smoking President, which is a twist on the classic Old Fashioned. Estes compliments the smokiness of mezcal with notes of lavender and cardamom bitters. These flavors are all unique on their own. To imagine a cocktail with this mixture makes me feel inquisitive.

There was one cocktail that made me feel confused, which was the Greener Pastures Margarita. Essentially, this is a blended margarita with avocado. As I was reading the recipe, it reminded me of what a person on a diet might drink if they wanted a cocktail. It did not sound too appealing, though Estes defends the cocktail by stating, “[it’s] surprisingly easy to drink.”
