  1. Cuervo and OJ used to be a favorite of mine. I'd initially tried a Tequila Sunrise, but later chose to forgo the grenadine.

    1. silver tequila and sprite with lemon juice

      1. I think the right combination is a pony of sippin' tequila and a draft of XX on the side.

        1. re: yayadave

          Amen. And possibly a shot glass of granita to round it out.

        2. Two favorites:

          "Tequila collins" - sparkling limeade or lemonade (from TJ's, or a mix of seltzer, simple syrup, and fresh juice) with tequila. Either way add some lime juice too.

          The Todos Santos: tequila, damiana, and fresh tangerine juice. Our wedding reception drink. Delicious!

          1. Been to Todos Santos, but never heard of damiana. Perhaps there's a Todos Santos in Mexico as well, but the one I know is in Guatemala. Anyway, would love to try this. Is is readily available in the States? Don't recall ever having seen it.
