This tall glass of refreshing features tequila and kombucha

Presented by Boothby in partnership with 1800 Tequila

One of our favourite tequila cocktails here at Boothby has long been the El Diablo. It’s a tiki-era tequila drink: essentially, a healthy dose of tequila, some ginger ale (or ginger beer, preferably), lime and creme de mure. It’s a delicious long drink.

And it’s that drink that has served as the inspiration for this picnic-worthy Tequila Ginger Highball.

It pairs the vanilla, orange and agave flavours of 1800 Reposado with the zesty, bubbly character of ginger and lemon kombucha — the kind you should be able to find in most supermarkets these days. Add a splash of lime juice and a little dab of sugar, and you’ve got the perfect cooler for a picnic in the park with mates.
