You’ve probably heard of the classic Rum and Coke or Vodka Tonics, but it’s not often you’ll hear about a Tequila Soda! Similar to a gin and tonic, but made with tequila. We also added muddled strawberry to add a little natural flavor and color to the cocktail.
This Tequila Soda recipe is a very simple cocktail recipe using only 4 fresh ingredients and it’s not too sweet or sugary. If you like Gin and Tonic, you’ll love this cocktail too!
We served these at our summer movie night and they were a big hit!
How to Make a Strawberry Tequila Soda – Step By Step
- In a glass, muddle 3 juicy strawberries.
- Pour in the tequila, fresh lime juice and top with club soda or tonic water.

Strawberry Tequila Sodas – A Great Batch Cocktail
Make a batch before your guests arrive and serve them on a tray! You’ll just multiply the recipe by the number of cocktail you’ll want to serve. Either serve from a pitcher or have them in glasses for guests to grab.
How To Muddle Fruit
Muddling is a key process in lots of cocktails and this strawberry tequila soda calls from some good ‘ol muddling! Muddling is a bartender’s technique for releasing flavor from solid cocktail ingredients. The basic idea is as simple as crushing the fruit or herb.
Fruits and vegetables can take a fair amount of pressure. A broad muddler is a great choice, especially if it has teeth to break into the skin. You can also improvise with the back of a wooden spoon, a mortar and pestle, or any blunt instrument.
Stainless steel or heavy plastic provide more heft than wood. Note that fruit juice will stain some plastics.
Add small pieces to a sturdy glass. If using a mortar and pestle, put the ingredients in the mortar bowl instead.
Press and twist. Hold the glass steady and cup the end of the muddler with your dominant hand. Press the tool down steadily onto the fruit rather than bashing the glass. Press hard and twist, then release and repeat. You can press against the sides or base of the glass.
Then follow the rest of the recipe and you have yourself a gorgeous, fruity strawberry tequila soda!
