Tequila and Sprite make a delicious combination. Obviously, if you’ve ever had a classic margarita, you are well aware that high quality tequila and the lemon-lime bite of Sprite were practically made for each other.
What is a Tequila and Sprite?
Like we said above, the lemon-lime bite of Sprite and crisp flavor of tequila is so close to a classic margarita you would be shocked it isn’t. Plus, it’s super quick to make with no extra ingredients. You don’t have to worry about Triple Sec, simple syrup, or any other ingredients.
If you’re looking for a super simple margarita recipe, you can also try a Tequila and Mountain Dew which has a similar flavor.
Sprite is such a great mixer, we will sometimes even add into our other margarita recipes for a little bit extra flavor. Try it out in a Blue Margarita, Blueberry Margarita, or even a Strawberry Margarita.
This cocktail goes especially well with spicy and flavorful foods. Consider making a full pitcher of this recipe and serve it on your next Taco Tuesday!
Other Soft Drink Mixers
Sprite isn’t the only soda that is a great cocktail base. In fact, soft drinks have a long history as an ingredient in mixed drinks. Some of our favorites to use are Coca-Cola (or Diet Coke), Ginger Ale, and Root Beer.
Let’s get straight to making a tasty Tequila and Sprite.
How to make this drink:

Take a highball glass and fill it with ice.
