RECIPE: Tequila Shooter Cocktail For National Tequila Day

We love the flavors of this tequila shooter combo, part of our National Tequila Day celebration. It’s a different take on the classic spicy tomato sangrita shooter.

This recipe comes from Milagro Tequila, made from 100% estate-grown blue agave from the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.

Instead of the spicy tomato shot, pineapple juice with cilantro and mint steps in. The tequila shot is Reposado, aged a minimum of two months.

The white and green shooter cocktail is called “El Vocho” after the white and green VW Beetle taxis that formerly swarmed Mexico City (and were recently phased out following a law mandating that cabs have four doors for safety purposes).



  • 4 parts Reposado tequila
  • 4 parts pineapple juice
  • 10 cilantro leaves
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 1 small slice jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed

    1. Fill one shooter glass with Reposado tequila neat.
    2. Combine other ingredients in a blender and process 30 seconds. Fill the second shooter glass. Serve.
