Two frozen orange cocktails in front of a bottle of 21Seeds Valenca Orange Infused Tequila

For hot summer days, frozen is the name of the game

Happy first days of summer! Summer is a time to slow down and relax. Summer means sunny days, warm nights… and looking for every opportunity to cool down! (And no, we’re not talking about hiding in the air-conditioned indoors, is that really any way to enjoy summer??)
Our Seeds Squad LOVES summer–and we’re very good at keeping cool even on the hottest days. Whether we’re throwing a killer pool party, enjoying a picnic, lounging on the beach, or just sitting on our front porch, we have one secret to beating the heat. And guess what? We’re ready to spill the tea.
Or rather, spill the tequila, because here’s our big summer secret: the frozen cocktail.
Frozen cocktails are just as much of an art as any other type of craft cocktail, and can be a uniquely delicious way to convey flavors by incorporating simple, fresh ingredients–while also being delightfully on a hot summer day!
21Seeds Infused Tequila is an ideal base for a variety of frozen cocktails, thanks to its subtle but distinct infusions of flavor on an agave-forward blanco base. Our frozen drinks are crisp, light, and yes, ice cold–perfect for any summer fun occasion. We’re sharing a few of our faves with you that are perfect for your summer get-togethers with friends and family.

Frozen Negroni

You might be wondering why a negroni is on the list of fantastic summer tequila cocktails; after all, a traditional negroni has a gin base. Turns out, if you swap out gin for 21Seeds Valencia Orange Infused Tequila, you end up with an even more delicious & smooth cocktail. The infused tequila cuts some of the bitterness of the original negroni, and the orange notes bring out tangy notes.

But wait, there’s more. Take this yummy tequila Negroni, blend it with ice, and you end up with a swoonworthy frozen cocktail! It’s unlike any cocktail you’ve had or imagined, in the best possible way!

Frozen Paloma

If you’ve never had a paloma, you should probably stop reading and go make one (well, after you read the recipe, and maybe not if you’re at work, but definitely at the next appropriate opportunity). A paloma is an incredibly simple cocktail that balances tart and sweet grapefruit juice with blanco tequila; it’s a fun and fresh tasting variation on a traditional margarita and perfect for sipping on warm evenings.

Is your mouth watering yet? Well, grab a napkin, because we’re giving you the recipe for our FROZEN paloma. That’s right, we’re taking all the delicious components of a traditional paloma, adding our 21Seeds Grapefruit Hibiscus Infused Tequila, and throwing it all in a blender with some ice. The result? Let’s just say you’ll probably want some pitchers on hand, because you’ll be mixing a lot.
