Patron Tequila is renowned for its premium quality and smooth character. Sipping it neat or on the rocks is a testament to its excellence, and the choices for extraordinary Patron Tequila cocktails are endless. This article explores 13 of the best mixers for Patron and introduces you to a world of vibrant and complementary flavors that enhance the tequila experience.

1. Agave Nectar

Staying true to the essence of tequila, agave nectar serves as a natural sweetener that perfectly complements Patron’s natural flavor profile. The Agave Collins, a tequila take on the classic Tom Collins, combines Patron Silver, agave nectar, and soda water for a well-balanced and subtly sweet cocktail, allowing Patron Tequila’s flavor to shine.

2. Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola is another excellent mixer for tequila that creates a quick and easy way to keep your guests happy while giving you time to enjoy the party. Add a shot of coke to a cocktail glass over ice and fill with coke for a delicious and refreshing two-ingredient cocktail. The perfect ratio of ingredients for this drink is one part tequila to two parts coke.

To balance the sweetness of Coke, try adding the juice of a lime wedge. This tequila, coke, and lime combination, called the Batanga, is similar to the Cuba Libra rum and coke cocktail that originated in Cuba in the early 1900s.

3. Coconut Water

Although alcohol dehydrates your body, adding coconut water to any alcoholic beverage can help counteract dehydration. The same is true when drinking tequila. Coconut water adds a hint of the tropics to your tequila while rehydrating your body. Try this tequila and coconut water combination by creating drinks like the Coconut Margarita that add a Latin touch to your day.

4. Espresso

For an unexpected twist that caters to coffee enthusiasts, try espresso as a mixer for Patron Tequila. The Tequila Espresso Martini is a delightful combination of espresso, Patron Tequila, a coffee liqueur, and simple syrup. Like the classic espresso martini made with vodka, the tequila version creates a creamy dessert drink that is sure to please.

5. Ginger Ale

A simple two-ingredient cocktail made from patron tequila and ginger ale will make mixing quick and easy and keep the party rolling.

6. Ginger Beer

If you want to add a little spice to your tequila cocktail, look no further than ginger beer. Mix 2 ounces of Patron Tequila with 3 ounces of ginger beer, and add half an ounce of lime juice. Pour all ingredients into a chilled mule mug over ice, stir, and garnish with a lime wedge for the best Jalisco Mule you’ve ever tasted.

7. Grapefruit Juice

The bittersweet citrus notes of grapefruit juice provide a sophisticated twist to Patron Tequila. The Paloma, a cocktail blending Patron Reposado, grapefruit juice, soda water, simple syrup, and lime, offers a refreshing and well-rounded cocktail that showcases Patron’s versatility.

8. Fresh Jalapeño

For those who enjoy a hint of heat, infusing Patron Tequila with slices of fresh jalapeño adds a spicy kick to your cocktail. The Jalapeño Margarita introduces a fiery twist to the classic recipe, balancing Patron’s smoothness with the jalapeño’s heat. Experiment with the spice level to tailor the drink to your taste preference.

9. Lime Juice

Lime juice is a classic and essential mixer for Patron Tequila, and it is found in most tequila cocktails. The zesty and citrusy notes of fresh lime juice add brightness and a refreshing twist to the tequila. The Margarita is a prime example of this combination: Patron Tequila, triple sec, and lime juice are shaken and strained into a salt-rimmed glass for a timeless and refreshing cocktail.

10. Pineapple Juice

Create a tropical paradise for your taste buds by combining Patron Tequila with the sweet and tangy notes of pineapple juice. The Pineapple Paloma, a fusion of Patron Reposado, pineapple juice, grapefruit soda, and a hint of lime, is a vibrant and refreshing option for warm days or evenings under the stars.

11. Soda Water

Soda water is a basic mixer that goes well with any alcoholic beverage. Tequila and Soda is a fast and easy way to enjoy a cocktail while maintaining a low-carb diet. And soda water now comes in many flavors that allow you to make a variety of cocktails with only two ingredients. Those soda water flavors include blackberry and cucumber lime.

12. Sprite and 7UP

Sprite and 7UP are among the best two-ingredient mixers for tequila. Tequila & Sprite and Tequila & 7 are quick and easy cocktails to keep the party moving. Just be sure to use the two-to-one ratio when pouring: two parts 7UP or Sprite to one part tequila.

Combine the ingredients in a shaker over ice, shake well, and strain into a prepared and chilled margarita glass with a salt rim. Garnish with a lime slice for a refreshing and citrusy cocktail.

13. Tomato Juice

If you are into savory cocktails, tomato juice could be your new favorite tequila mixer. The Pioneer Woman’s Bloody Maria cocktail recipe is surprisingly delicious. Adding horseradish, hot sauce, and chili lime seasoning makes it somewhat spicy, but you can tailor those spices to fit your taste.

If you have a favorite Bloody Mary recipe, use those ingredients and substitute tequila for the vodka. And with this particular cocktail, the garnish options are endless: cilantro and lime-seasoned shrimp, lemon/lime slices, fresh jalapeño slices, or a celery stick.
