Tequila has a rich and storied history. In the 1500s, a low supply of brandy led the Spanish to create an agave-based alcohol that would go on to become incredibly popular throughout the region. However, innovation within the industry did not stop there. Over several hundred years, tequila has evolved and changed, with each evolution attempting to reach higher levels of quality and expanding in new areas.
This all leads to one of the more recent tequila success stories, Ranco La Gloria’s pink lemonade tequila. This is a fantastic drink that everyone from tequila aficionados to newcomers should try.

What Is Pink Lemonade Tequila?
Pink lemonade tequila is essentially just a flavored form of tequila. However, it is made with high-quality ingredients and infused in a way that imparts a taste like no other.
Let’s start with the ingredients. At Rancho La Gloria, we create all of our products with specific ingredients. Our tequilas start with a blanco base, the purest form of tequila, made with 100% Blue Weber Agave. These tequilas come from our distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. Because of this, we are able to ensure that all of our tequilas are high-quality and are produced in an authentic manner.
This tequila base is then infused with other flavors. Here, we alter the taste to obtain a pink lemonade flavor. Since the base product is already high-quality, the final product brings out this same level of quality but does so in a way that imparts a wonderfully unique flavor.

How to Drink Pink Lemonade Tequila
There are essentially two ways to drink our pink lemonade tequila. You can drink it on its own, or you can incorporate it into a mixed drink. What you go with is up to your personal taste.
Pink Lemonade Tequila on Its Own
We already mentioned that our tequilas are made with high-quality ingredients and that our pink lemonade tequila has a wonderful taste. This is important because problems with tequila typically come from lower-quality ingredients and a subpar creation process. In tequilas like this, off-flavors can develop, and impurities can impart their own awful tastes.
However, our tequila doesn’t come with these problems. Every sip you taste will be as enjoyable as the one that came before it.
If you are drinking our pink lemonade tequila on its own, you can drink it in whatever way suits you best. On the rocks, it works as a wonderful way to cool down on a hot day. Meanwhile, drinking it straight allows you to appreciate all of the flavors without dilution. Both are great, and we suggest experimenting to find out what you like best.

Pink Lemonade Tequila in Mixed Drinks
Our pink lemonade tequila is great on its own but is also the perfect base for a number of different mixed drinks. These range from simple and straightforward to complex and interesting.
A paloma is a drink that is designed to be crisp and refreshing. It is basically the cousin of the margarita, as both use similar ingredients. However, the Paloma relies more on the flavor of grapefruit, which pairs perfectly with the natural flavor of tequila.
A pink paloma provides all the crisp and refreshing feeling of a classic paloma but does so with a kick of pink sweetness. To make one, mix 2 ounces of our pink lemonade tequila, 1 ounce of grapefruit juice, half an ounce of lime juice, and half an ounce of agave nectar. Pour all of this into a salt-rimmed glass of ice. For an extra twist, you can add a grapefruit slice and/or a rosemary sprig on top.
A pisco sour is a drink that comes either from Peru or Chile, depending on who you ask. In both of these countries, the drink is incredibly popular and beloved, to the point where the creation of the drink is a source of national pride. It is notable for providing a rich infusion of flavors that are then capped by a frothy egg white. The drink has both a flavor and a presentation that make it notable.
A disco sour flips the script on this drink in a wonderfully fun way. To make one, add 2 ounces of our pink lemonade tequila, three-quarters of an ounce of lime juice, three-quarters of an ounce of agave nectar, and half an egg white into a shaker with ice. Then, cover it and shake vigorously for around 20 seconds, as doing so will mix the drink and properly froth the egg white. Once you have done so, simply pour the drink, and you’re ready to go!
The pink lemonade flavor in this drink gives it the classic sour taste of the original drink. However, the sweetness provided by the same flavor and by the agave help to smooth over this sour taste. In the end, it produces a cocktail that anyone will love.

Looking for something simple and easy to make? The roller girl may be just the drink for you.
To make this straightforward cocktail, start with 2 ounces of our pink lemonade tequila. Pour this into a glass of ice and top it with your favorite brand of black cherry hard seltzer. If you want to punch up the drink a little more, you can add in luxardo cherries or dehydrated lemon wheels.
The best part about this drink is its simplicity. The delicate nature of the black cherry hard seltzer allows the natural flavors within the pink lemonade tequila to stand out. However, the hint of black cherry flavor still adds to the mix. In the end, both drinks work to enhance each other in a complementary fashion.
