COCKTAIL RECIPE: Tequila Lemonade

Nachos and tequila shots may rule at many Super Bowl parties. But for your consideration, we present tequila lemonade, courtesy of the producers of 1800 Select Silver Tequila. (The celebrity spokesperson is Michael Imperioli, as Vincent Chase is endorsing Avion and Justin Timberlake has his own brand. Details.)

1800 Select Silver Tequila is an unusual tequila, even in the superpremium category. It’s 100% blue agave, of course; that’s required by law. But it’s really a new category of silver tequila, with features of joven and reposado tequilas. (See the different types of tequila.)

But, using two proprietary distillation, it’s also distilled at 100 proof instead of 80 proof. The result: a very smooth tequila, crisp and clean, that showcases the sweet, fruity agave flavor. And it’s 25% stronger than other silvers.

Second, it’s partially aged to add complexity (silver tequila typically is bottled immediately after distillation).

Third, it’s blended with a bit of aged tequila—also unusual for a silver tequila, and one that, along with the aging, provides even more complexity.


1800 Select Silver Tequila retails for a suggested $69.00, but we’ve found it online for less than half of that. There’s a store locator on the company website.

With a tequila this interesting, you might want to snuggle up to the bottle and drink shots from the stopper. But the producers suggest this tequila lemonade recipe:
