Welcome back to this week’s Thirsty Thursday drink recipe roundup! We have some delightful and warming concoctions for you this week, alongside some easy-to-pour options as well. So grab your shakers and let’s get mixing!

Tanteo Tequila is a deliciously smooth tequila that we use for special occasions in my house. We happily take shots of it, but it is also a great tequila for mixed drinks. Their Tanteo Chipotle Irish Coffee is everything I love in a hot cup of spiked coffee — the chipotle adds an extra, and very welcome, kick to your tastebuds!

Tequila, Tequila, Tequila! This week we focus on the blue agave-based drink for some warm you up cocktails!

If you need the perfect coffee to go with this recipe, give Chameleon Coffee a try. We’ve been drinking their iced coffee for a while now, and each flavor is unique and delicious in its own way. For this recipe, I highly suggest using their Dark and Handsome blend.

Freshly Brewed Coffee1/2 teaspoon Granulated White Sugar1 Teaspoon Brown SugarWhipped cream for toppingDirections: Add fresh coffee to glass, stir in white and brown sugar until dissolved.

Looking for something simple yet delicately lavish? La Adelita Tequila’s The Bump is sleek, sexy, indulgent, and a delight to sip. As an added bonus, it’s seriously easy to make — you could make several of these in under 3 minutes!

"Ingredients:2 oz La Adelita CristalinoCaviar (Our suggestion is to pair with Kaluga)Instructions:Pour tequila into a shot glass and sip alongside the caviar."

This next recipe delighted my senses in more than one way. From the delicate taste to the fruity notes, to the pale pink hue this drink takes on — this may be my Valentine’s Day drink of choice! el Jimador Tequila’s Bramble is a celebration of fresh ingredients all blended together beautifully.

"INGREDIENTS2 oz el Jimador Tequila Reposado1 oz Lemon Juice.5 oz Simple Syrup.5 oz Coconut Cream4 Muddled BlackberriesLemon WheelBlackberryINSTRUCTIONS: First, muddle your blackberries in a shaker. Then, add ice, tequila, lemon juice, simple syrup, and coconut cream to the shaker. Give it a shake, and double strain it into a glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel and blackberry. Cheers!"

Monkey 47 gin is a bold gin that elevates your drinking experience and has a dedicated following to boot. Their yearly Distillers Cut is always a notch above the rest, but each one of their gins is fantastic. Their Audrey 47 drink is classic, fun, and has just a little bit of bubbly to get the party started!

"Ingredients:4 cl Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin2 cl fresh lemon juice3 cl simple syrup2 dashes Creole Bitters3 mint leavesChampagneHow to Mix: Pour all ingredients except the Champagne into a mixing glass with a handful of ice cubes. Stir and strain into a nice coupette glass. Garnish with mint leaves."

Old Fashion’s are a time-honored drink for many of us — especially since they’re fun to make! But if you are short on time, or headed to a party, there’s something extra sweet about having one pre-made, especially when it’s by Angry Orchard. Their take on the classic is smooth and crisp, and can be found in their Winter Bundle mix, which also includes the classic Crisp Apple, Peach Mango, and Cinnful. The standout star of this show is the Old Fashioned, but each drink in this bundle is terrific.

I’ve also become a fan of NUTRL’s Vodka Seltzer cans. Raspberry is my favorite, tho pineapple and watermelon also deliver a delicious spin on a classic! Best of all, these cans come in at just 100 calories per can and have no added sugar — this drink is perfect for anyone who wants to be healthier this year!
