Although not exactly a cocktail in the finest sense, the tequila shooter is a drink you basically mix as you go. To make it more stylish, rim your shot glass with lime juice and coarse salt, and then pour in the tequila. Have a wedge of lime ready to go. Throw the tequila back quickly, and then bite the lime wedge. That's a tequila shooter!

The tequila sunrise is best made by using thoroughly chilled ingredients rather than shaking it with ice because you want to add the grenadine last and let it gradually sink to the bottom of the glass.
Begin by pouring about one and one half ounces of chilled white tequila into a highball glass. Add four ounces of fresh, ice-cold orange juice. Top off the cocktail with grenadine, poured slowly so it floats a little before it sinks. You can add as much or as little as you prefer. Garnish the drink with an orange slice.
Before you mix this drink, rub a lime wedge around the rim of a chilled margarita glass and dip it in coarse salt.
Shake together two ounces of tequila, three-quarters of an ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice and one ounce of Cointreau with ice. Strain the beverage into the prepared glass and garnish it with lime.
Frozen Strawberry Margarita
Follow the previous recipe for a traditional margarita, but put all the ingredients in a blender with about one-half cup of cracked ice. Add two teaspoons of simple syrup and about one-half cup of chopped strawberries. Blend to a slushy froth.
The blue margarita is easily made by following the traditional margarita recipe and adding three-quarters of an ounce of blue curacao to the mix.
Long Beach Iced Tea
Not strictly a tequila drink, the Long Beach iced tea is a delightful variation of the Long Island iced tea.
Combine one shot each of vodka, light rum, gin and tequila with one shot of triple sec in a collins glass filled halfway with ice. Add a splash of cranberry juice, stir to mix and chill. Garnish your drink with a wedge of lime.
Shake two ounces of tequila and one ounce of Kahlua with cracked ice, and then strain it into an old-fashioned glass. Serve on the rocks and garnish with lemon or lime as you prefer.
