What makes a great Tequila Sour

I’m very particular about my tequila, and for this recipe I used my favorite, Exotico! If you’re going to make a tequila based cocktail (or even take a tequila shot), good tequila is of utmost importance. Exotico’s smooth and quality tequila is the perfect alcohol for this White Christmas Tequila Sour. Smooth as can be!

You might remember me using Exotico throughout the years in these other favorite cocktail recipes:

Exotico is made by one of my favorite companies, Luxco, right here in Saint Louis. I’m so proud to be representing this award winning tequila as they’re made with 100% blue agave, has a great price point that can’t be beat for the quality, and look at those amazingly cool bottles.

What makes a Traditional Tequila Sour

Tequila Sours traditionally consist of Tequila, lime and lemon juices, bitters, sweetener, and sometimes egg whites. I’ve chosen to skip the bitters to keep things light. I find that this version is one that’s loved by all!

To make this recipe Christmas themed, I’ve added fresh cranberries, sprigs of rosemary, and lime slices for garnish. Santa Clause is coming to town!

Is it safe to drink egg whites

It’s best to find egg whites that have been pasteurized. This way you’re sure they’re free of bacteria or salmonella and you can feel totally safe drinking them in cocktails, stirring them into smoothies, or using in no bake desserts. Typically if you’re using proper kitchen techniques and if your eggs are fresh, there is nothing to worry about, but pasteurized is always best.
