Tequila and its cousin Mezcal (both agave-based spirits from Mexico), continue to be a favourite amongst a small but growing number of Australians who have perhaps travelled to Mexico, love a Margarita, or enjoy a flavourful base spirit to a refreshing mixed drink. Australians are drinking better quality tequila more than ever with premium tequila outpacing the growth of standard tequila. This is fuelled by the appreciation of fine tequilas like Patrón in cocktails and neat serves.

Today is World Tequila Day and what better way to celebrate than mixing up a few Tequila cocktails with friends. Here are our go-to cocktail recipes.
