THE COCKTAIL HOUR: Tequila Old Fashioned

Here's a real easy and real light cocktail for you.  It's basically a whiskey old fashioned recipe but using tequila instead.

Watch the Video!
We'll make a couple of very slight adjustments for the taste of the tequila and to shave a few calories.  Total calorie count - 100.

Here's the recipe (one drink):

1.5 oz. tequila
2-3 oz.soda water
1/2 packet sweet 'n low
dash of bitters
1 pineapple chunk or spear

Put sweet 'n low in an old fashioned glass followed by a dash of bitters.  Pour just a splash of carbonated water on that.  Fill glass with ice.  Pour in tequila and fill to top with the carbonated water.  Put in a wedge of pineapple and enjoy!

  1. Nice recipe. It's been a long time since I made a cocktail, these days, I simply go for the draft or a plain whiskey on the rocks.

  2. David, I'm the same way with a really good tequila. Just sip it straight.
