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.
Flavors from fresh cilantro, tequila, and lemon make this easy summer cocktail recipe incredibly refreshing.
Mr. Fearless Dining and I went to a fun new restaurant in the East Bay called Juhu Beach Club.
Juhu Beach Club is an Indian fusion restaurant in North Oakland. Most of their menu is naturally gluten free and their chef blends flavors like I have never experienced before. The flavors explode in your mouth, not in a spicy way…more of a WOWZA way.
I wish I were more educated on Indian flavors because I would love to figure out how to create some of these recipes for myself. The staff is very educated about gluten free and I highly recommend you try it if you are in the East Bay.
My husband was the designated driver so he ordered a lemonade flavored with cilantro. It sounded so odd, he asked to try a taste before he ordered it.
The lemonade was so good! I would never think to add cilantro to lemonade. Try that drink at a picnic or pool party. For night time, I decided to try to re-create the drink recipe using some tequila :-).
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.
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 just love what my blender can do.)
