Best Lemonade Tequila Cocktail There’s something special about homemade lemonade made with fresh lemon juice and simple syrup that makes it so much better than anything you can buy in a store. It has just right amount of tart lemon flavor and the perfect amount of sweetness. The only way I can think to improve upon homemade lemonade is to add some blanco tequila and triple sec and make it hard lemonade. If you’ve never had hard lemonade, it’s a cocktail that combines the sweetness of lemonade with the boldness of alcohol, typically in the form of tequila, vodka or whiskey. It’s a popular drink during the summer season, perfect for sipping on a hot afternoon while relaxing in the backyard or cooling off by the beach. We love to have a glass while enjoying shrimp tacos or beer battered cod. Hard lemonade comes in various forms, from pre-mixed bottled drinks to homemade varieties made with simple ingredients like lemon juice and sugar. We opt for the homemade variety because it’s so easy to customize and only uses 5 simple ingredients!

Ingredients You’ll Need for Tequila Lemonade:

  • Water: You’ll need 4 cups of water divided between the lemonade and the simple syrup.

  • Granulated Sugar: We use 1 ½ cups of granulated sugar mixed with some of the water to make the simple syrup.

  • Lemon Juice: You’ll need 1 ½ cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice to give this tequila cocktail is signature lemon flavor.

  • Blanco Tequila: We like blanco tequila in this lemonade cocktail. It has a smooth flavor and is clear in color. You’ll need 1 ½ cups.

  • Triple Sec: This is a sweet, orange-flavored clear liqueur that adds another layer of citrus flavor to this lemonade. You’ll need ½ cup.

  • Ice: Don’t forget plenty of ice for the drink pitcher and individual serving glasses.
