A tequila cosmo is the best way to describe a passion cocktail. This pretty pink martini is filled with flavor using a similar combination of cranberry, lime, and orange liqueur to the cosmopolitan. Cointreau, however, would pair nicely with tequila in this scenario, although Grand Marnier is a better choice. Tequila makes a wonderful dinner companion when paired with this spirit. You should do that even if you have Mexican food since the sweetness of the fruits will counteract the spice. Additionally, the recipe is best when split into two cocktail recipes to share, making it the perfect option for Valentine’s Day or a date night.
