Tequila lemonade with cilantro is an unusually delicious cocktail made with fresh-squeezed lemonade and tequila. It is the best boozy drink for a hot day.

Mr. Fearless Dining and I went to a fun new restaurant in the East Bay called Juhu Beach Club.

Juhu Beach Club was an Indian fusion restaurant in North Oakland. Most of their menu is naturally gluten free, and their chef blends flavors as I have never experienced before. The flavors explode in your mouth, not spicy, more of a WOWZA way. I am sad to say that this restaurant closed back in 2018.

Flavors from fresh cilantro, tequila, and lemon make this easy summer cocktail recipe incredibly refreshing.  Don’t forget to check out all of my delicious cocktails recipes.

Why we love this unique drink:

  1. I love this drink because it is a twist on classic lemonade. It combines unexpected flavors into something special.
  2. The cilantro lemonade was so good! I would never think to add cilantro to lemonade.
  3. This drink would be popular at a picnic or pool party.

If you love boozy lemonade recipes, you will want to try the tequila lemonade with a twist of cilantro. It is an easy tequila and lemon cocktail recipe for any occasion.

This lemonade and tequila drink is quick to make, too. Just grab a blender or Vitamix.

Recipe Step-By-Step Directions:

Step 1: Juice your lemons. Add the juice to the water and add the sugar to make your lemonade. You can also use bottled lemonade if you prefer.

Washed cilantro leaves in a bowl.

Step 2: Wash and separate the cilantro leaves from the stems.

Step 3: Dump the water and cilantro into the Vitamix or blender.

My Vitamix was quick to liquefy the cilantro needed in this recipe. I use my Vitamix just about every day to make everything from soup to smoothies. (This is not a paid or sponsored post; I love what my blender can do.)

Step 4: Pour the lemonade into the cilantro mixture. Add the tequila and mix well.

This blueberry vodka lemonade is another fun summer cocktail to try.

Serve With:
