Pink Russian

The Mexican cream liqueur Tequila Rose combines creamy and sweet with a hint of tequila, making it perfect for dessert cocktails. And while you can sip any flavor on ice, making Tequila Rose cocktails adds complexity. Enjoy these cocktails made with strawberry cream, cocoa cream, and java cream flavored Tequila Rose.

Using Tequila Rose in Cocktails

Tequila Rose is a mixture of cream, sugar, flavoring, and tequila. It has 15% alcohol by volume (ABV) from the tequila. Once you've opened the bottle, keep it refrigerated to extend the shelf life, which may last several months after opening. If it appears discolored, then it has extended beyond its shelf life and needs to be discarded. For best results, try to use it within a few weeks of opening.
