Sour Apple Tequila Cocktail – The Lucky Shamrock #drinks #cocktail

Sweet n' harsh, with subtleties of apple and lime, and a quite green shade, this Lucky Shamrock is ideal for observing St. Patrick's Day. Channel your internal Irish soul with this boozy Sour Apple Tequila Cocktail!

I had each aim of making a mixed drink with Guinness, yet I REALLY needed a mixed drink with a quite green tone. So I rejected the Guinness thought, and assumed if you needed a lager, you could simply go present yourself with a tall one.

Acrid and sweet with subtleties of apple and lime, and a boozy tequila punch, this Lucky Shamrock is invigorating, bubbly and EVERYTHING you ought to taste.

Sour Apple Tequila Cocktail – The Lucky Shamrock #drinks #cocktail

Sweet n’ sour, with nuances of apple and lime, and a pretty green hue, this Lucky Shamrock is perfect for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.


  • 1 ½ oz Tequila
  • 1 ½ oz Sour Apple Liqueur
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • ½ oz Agave (optional)*
  • Sprite to taste*
  • Optional Garnishes: Lime Wedges, Slices of Apple


  1. Fill a shaker with ice and pour in all ingredients, EXEPT the Sprite.
  2. Shake vigorously until shaker is chilled to the touch.
  3. Fill a highball glass with ice and slices of apple (if using). Strain the cocktail into glass. Top with sprite and garnish with wedge of lime. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes
1. As with any libation, I highly suggest you make this drink to taste. The recipe is merely a suggestion. If you want a stronger drink you can 86 the sprite and serve it in a martini glass. If you want a weaker drink, you can serve this cocktail in a highball glass and top it off with a decent amount of sprite.
2. The agave in the recipe is optional, but I like how the sweetness offset the sour apple. You can leave the agave out completely, or use more if you like your cocktail on the sweeter side.
3. I used silver patron tequila and sprite zero in my cocktail, but you can use any tequila and any type of lemon-lime soda you would like.
4. The wedges of lime and slices of apple are both optional garnishes. However, I liked the extra squeeze of fresh acidic lime in my cocktail. And, the slices of apples give this libation a little pizazz. To get my slices of apples paper thin I used a mandolin.
