Tequila Smash

Please everyone with a delicious Tequila Smash made with 7UP®. Mix freely, drink responsibly.

Margaritas and palomas are classic tequila cocktails, but sometimes you want to mix it up. Enter the Tequila Smash. Juice from blackberries gives the drink a beautiful color, 7UP gives it refreshing bubbles and a hint of sweetness, and the sage leaves add a subtle flavor that elevates this to a very grown-up tequila cocktail.

Tips from 7UP

Fresh herbs are a fantastic addition to cocktails, so if you’re a fan of them, why not grow your own cocktail garden? Besides sage, rosemary, mint, and basil are all commonly used in cocktails (and mocktails) and are relatively easy to grow. Keep a cocktail garden going all summer, and you’ll have new ways to muddle, mix, and garnish.
